How to Make Invisibility Potion in Minecraft

Invisibility potions in Survival Minecraft are used to prevent hostile mobs from targeting you from further away. However, it can make for fun interaction with others on multiplayer. It can be startling finding a player you did not know was there right behind you, imagine if they were invisible! Invisibility potions are a relatively complicated process for the reward, but it can lead to some great fun in multiplayer maps.

Required Ingredients

To make an invisibility potion, you will need:

  1. Blaze Powder
  2. Water Bottles
  3. Nether wart
  4. Golden Carrot (For night vision potion)
  5. Fermented Spider Eye

The most difficult part of brewing potions is to find a nether fortress. The fortress will house blaze and the nether wart necessary to make night vision potions. You will need to defeat some blaze enemies in order to get blaze rods, a material used for crafting the brewing stand as well as fueling it.

You will need water bottles to hold the potion’s effect. Glass bottles are made from glass, so dig up some sand and smelt it into the three glass pieces you need.

Nether wart is necessary to create the base for night vision potions: the awkward potion. Nether wart can also be grown in the overworld as long as you have soul sand. Make sure to plant some so you have extra for future potions.

The golden carrot is used to turn awkward potions into night vision potions. You will need one carrot and eight gold nuggets.


Fermented spider eye is used to turn night vision potions into invisibility potions. For this potion you will need to craft two different potion effects before you can make invisibility potions.

How to make Invisibility Potion?

In a Nutshell:

To make a Potion of Invisibility (3:00), you will need 1 Potion of Night Vision (3:00) and 1 fermented spider eye. Place the Potion of Night Vision (3:00) in one of the bottom boxes in the Brewing Stand menu. Then add the fermented spider eye to the top box. After a few seconds, Potion of Night Vision will turn into a Potion of Invisibility (3:00).

Step-by-Step Guide(with Pictures):

Here is the step-by-step pictorial guide you need to follow to Make Invisibility Potion in Minecraft:

To make invisibility potions you need to first make night vision potions. Let’s start by getting the primary ingredient for night vision potions, the golden carrot. To make a golden carrot you will need to harvest some carrots. They can be found in villages, dropped rarely by zombies, or found in shipwreck or pillager tower chests.

Step-1 Locate a village farm, villages can almost guarantee you find carrots. Every village farm has a 1/5 chance to generate carrots in their farm plots. You can distinguish carrots from the other crops by their orange base and green leafy tops.

Step-2 Next you will need to find a gold ingot to create a golden carrot. Gold ore can be found anywhere below “Y” level 31. You can also find it in badland biomes near the surface. The ore is notable by its yellow flecks and you will need at least an iron pickaxe to mine it.

Step-3 Smelt your gold ore into ingots. Place your gold into a furnace and wait for it to smelt into ingots. To learn how to make a furnace refer to this guide. Link

Step-4 Place a gold ingot into the crafting menu to make gold nuggets.

Step-6 Now for the primary ingredient for invisibility potions: a fermented spider eye. You will need a spider eye, sugar, and a brown mushroom. Spiders can spawn anywhere it is dark. Wait for nighttime and hunt down some spiders to get the eventual spider eye drop.

Step-7 Locate some sugarcane alongside any water source block. You will need to craft this into sugar.

Then place your sugar, spider eye, and brown mushroom in any of the nine crafting spaces to make your fermented spider eye. You can also do this in the player 2x2 crafting menu.

Now you just need a brewing stand. You can make one with the drops from blaze enemies and three pieces of cobblestone.

Step-10 You will need to go to the nether in order to find blaze. Build a nether portal by placing obsidian four blocks wide and five blocks tall.

Step-11 Next light the nether portal with some flint and steel. To make flint and steel you will need an iron and a flint. Simply place the flint and the iron ingot into your crafting menu in any of the nine crafting spaces and you can start traversing the nether.

Step-13 Next you will need to locate a nether fortress. These fortresses can be extremely rare, if you are fortunate your portal may generate right on top of one.

Step-14 Once you have located the red/purple hue of the brick you know you have found your fortress! Your next step will be locating the blaze that spawn intermittently throughout the fortress.

Step-15 Simply defeat enough blaze until you have a decent supply of blaze rods. You will need at least one blaze rod to make the brewing stand and any extra can become fuel for the brewing stand itself. So make sure to find extra blaze rods.

Run throughout your fortress until you come across a staircase with some soul sand and some red fungus growing. This is the nether wart you will need to brew your night vision potion.

After you have collected all your materials, head to safety and back to your crafting table. Using your blaze rod, combine it with three pieces of cobblestone on a crafting table to make a brewing stand.

If you want to scare your friends, make sure you remove your armor after drinking the potion of invisibility. It will make your player invisible but not your armor. It will be a dead giveaway to the pranks you can pull on your friends.

Q. What does Invisibility potions do?

They make you invisible of course! The effect does not extend to your armor. Likewise, it does not make whatever you are holding in your hand invisible either. If you would like you can turn the potion of invisibility into splash potions. This can be used to make mobs disappear. They will still technically be there but you can surprise someone with an invisible hostile mob or make their horse vanish from their stable.

All pranks aside, they do prevent mobs from aggroing onto you from further away. They can still aggro to you if you get close enough but if you want to get away from a swarm of hostile mobs a potion of invisibility can make your life easier.

Q. Can Enderman see you with Potion of Invisibility?

Unfortunately, potion of invisibility does not prevent enderman from attacking on you. Keep your line of sight away from the tall screechy mobs.


Congratulations! Disappearing right before another person’s eyes can be a fun interaction. Brewing potions can involve a lot of work, but the payoff can be massive. Invisibility potions have a relatively niche payoff, but in multiplayer servers, the effect can lead to some hilarious encounters. It is also interesting seeing some floating armor running around.
