 Alchemy in Skyrim Combinations

Alchemy in Skyrim is one of the quickest ways to make gold in Skyrim. You can collect the resources just about anywhere and almost every town has an Alchemy Lab.

When you start the game your first quest after the intro is to head to Riverwood. In Riverwood, the inn (Sleeping Giant Inn) holds an alchemy lab so you can start crafting potions right away. Most people miss the Riverwood alchemy lab because the game doesn’t direct you to it right away.

The premise of alchemy in Skyrim is easy. Access the Alchemy Lab and start selecting ingredients to make either a potion or poison.  

If your combination is a success you will unlock the effect of that ingredient and the recipe will be noted for future use.

If your combination is a failure you will just lose the ingredient you tried to use.

The more ingredients combined on the potion/poison the higher the resale value of the potion will be. Then you can sell the potion to traders and make plenty of gold quickly.

Also the better potions/poisons you create the more your alchemy skill will increase. With a higher alchemy skill, the more powerful your potions will be.

If you find alchemists in towns they will sell you ingredients in their shops. And they should have an Alchemy Lab located inside their shop. You can buy ingredients from the alchemist and then make potions write in the shop then sell the created potion right back to the alchemist.

Alchemists and traders will also sell recipes that will unlock as soon as you read the recipe. But because of the ease to test different combinations, it is usually not beneficial to buy alchemy recipes.

Here is a full list of ingredients along with their effect. Mix the combinations together for maximum effect:
