"Wiiggenweld Potion? That's a really difficult one. Mind if I watch you make it? Good luck!"
Hermione Granger to Harry Potter[src]

The Wiggenweld Potion is a healing potion with the power to awaken a person from a magically-induced sleep.

A prince once used this potion to awaken a princess who had been given the Draught of Living Death by the Hag Leticia Somnolens. The prince first put some of the potion on his lips and then kissed the princess.

Etymology

"Wiggentree" or "Wiggen Tree" is the name which in the UK is given to the Mountain Ash (a species of the genus Sorbus) because, it has traditionally been used as an anti-witching device.

"Wiggen" from the old Breton means "strength", "bravery" or still "courage". As for "weld", it is an English word which means "join together by heating to the point of melting"'.

Thus, "Wiggenweld Potion" would mean literally "Welder Strength" or "Who Welds the Strength Potion".
