Potion information
Effect

Made the drinker quickly fall into a deep but temporary sleep

Difficulty level

Simple[1]

Known ingredients

The Sleeping Draught was a potion that caused the drinker to fall almost instantaneously into a deep but temporary sleep.[1][2] A standard Sleeping Draught differed from the Draught of Living Death, which was much more powerful, lasting, and difficult to make. Hermione Granger referred to the Sleeping Draught as "simple, but powerful".[1] Its recipe can be found in Magical Drafts and Potions.[2]

Key ingredients of the Sleeping Draught included Flobberworm Mucus, lavender, and valerian sprigs.[2]

History

Cakes COS 1

Cakes containing sleeping draught

1992

Hermione spiked two, plump chocolate cakes with Sleeping Draught in her second year. Harry Potter and Ron Weasley left these sweets out for Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle to find. The two Slytherins ate them, unquestioningly, and soon fell unconscious. Their expressions were frozen on their faces.

1995

SleepingDraught

A phial of Sleeping Draught.

The four dragons used in the first task of the Triwizard Tournament in 1994 were given Sleeping Draught to make the trip from the Romanian Dragon Sanctuary to Hogwarts easier. Charlie Weasley stated that he thought it would be better for the dragons to awake in a tranquil setting, but, upon waking in the Forbidden Forest, the beasts were as vicious as ever. In Charlie's words, the team of dragonologists used "a Sleeping Draught" to knock out all four dragons, suggesting that a normal dose of the potion might be potent enough to have an effect on a creature as big as a dragon.
