"Spirits of air, forests and sea, set us of this demon free; beasts of hoof and beasts of shell, drive this evil back to hell."
The Charmed Ones casting the spell over the potion.[src]

The Upper-Level Demon Vanquishing Potion is, as the name suggests, a potion designed for vanquishing upper-level demons. The potion has an entry in the Book of Shadows.


Upper Level Demonic Vanquishing Potion

  • One part Mandrake Root
  • 1 pinch of Carrot Seeds
  • 1 dash of Cardamom
  • 1 dash of Toadflax
  • 1 pig's foot
  • 1 cockle shell in its whole form
  • 1 pinch of Juniper Berries
  • A few crickets

All these ingredients have to be blended as one. When the pig's foot is added, it will ignite upon adding. In order for the potion to work, add the final and key ingredient—a piece of the demon's flesh or blood.

Notes and Trivia


Piper and Prue brewing the potion

  • The potion was brewed by the Charmed Ones on five occasions.
  • The first time the sisters made the potion, Piper was thrown back by an explosion while adding the demon flesh. The same thing later happened to Paige, while Piper stepped back without warning her. While making the potion in the alternate reality, Paige took the precaution of ordering Leo and Piper to stand back to avoid this effect.
  • The Belthazor entry in the Book of Shadows lists a spell to be used with the potion.
  • In "Look Who's Barking", Cole gained immunity to the potion when an Alchemist transmuted his blood. However, he was ultimately vanquished by the potion in the alternate reality using a freshly cut tissue to renew it.
  • In "My Three Witches", Chris Halliwell presumably made the same potion for the demon Gith, evident by his need of the demon's blood.
