Breath of the Wild - Get Materials

The easiest way to come by Elixirs, by far, is to make them yourself. As you journey through Hyrule, you will no doubt gather large amounts of Monster Drops and Items, so use these to craft the potions you need.

Trade Beetles with Beedle

Breath of the Wild - Get Materials
Beedle will trade Elixirs in return for any beetles you're carrying, but the potion you get is random. He will tell you what he's willing to trade for, so you can always turn him down and try again, or find him somewhere else until he offers a Hearty Elixir.
