  • Chopped daisy roots[1]
  • Skinned shrivelfig[1]

The Shrinking Potion[2], known also as the Shrinking Solution[1], was a potion that caused the drinker to decrease in apparent age and size[1].

If more than one rat spleen or more than a dash of leech juice is used, the potion will turn bright orange and become poisonous[1]. Nonetheless, it can be reversed by stirring feverishly and allowing to simmer[1].
