This is a list of all the elixirs you can make in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (BotW). You can also find recipes to see how to make elixirs and the materials you need for the various effects!
List of Contents
Elixirs differ from the cook food in two ways; they use Monster Parts as ingredients, and they always have an effect.
These effects can boost things like your health, stamina or attack power, or serve to protect you against the elements of Breath of the Wild. Especially stamina potions are super useful, so let's get cooking!

Not really food, and yet not really an elixir, Fairy Tonics are potions made with Fairies that heal large amounts of hearts.
|Elixir Material Requirements|
|Critter + Monster Part|
Some materials can be bought from shops or traveling merchants, but you'll probably find most of your ingredients as you adventure through Hyrule.
Just like when cooking food, you can only create elixirs by mixing your ingredients in a cooking pot. Cooking pots are easy to find in stables and villages. , so travel to one and start looking for a cooking pot.
Next you choose the base materials you'll use to make the elixir, based on what kind of buff you want. For example, one way of making a basic stamina potion is to hold a Restless Cricket and a Keese Wing and cook them, and if you want more stamina recovery you can add more Crickets.
Exit your menu and step close enough to the cooking pot for the Cook option to appear (A button), then start cooking! You'll see the result immediately, bu you can also check it via the Food tab in the Inventory.
Critters and monster parts with the same attribute have the most compatibility when cooked into an elixir. Always check each critter or monster part attribute to get the highest quality of elixir before making one.
Avoid randomly selecting each material and first decide on what elixir you want to make, then look for the creatures and monster materials that will give the buff.
|Attack Up||Deal more damage than usual.|
|Defense Up||Take less damage from attacks.|
|Extra Hearts||Gives you bonus hearts that will decrease before your normal hearts.|
|Extra Stamina||Gives you bonus stamina that will be used when the normal gauge runs out.|
|Stamina Restoration||Immediately recovery part of your stamina gauge.|
|Movement Speed Up||Walking and running speed will be increased.|
|Stealth Up||Make less sounds when moving, allowing you to sneak up on enemies.|
|Flame Guard||Immune to burning, whether from environments or attacks.|
|Cold Resistance||Become able to withstand colder temperatures.|

Try not to waste your precious materials by adding ingredients that are not included in the recipe. Adding a single apple, for example, will result in a Dubious Food.
