Polyjuice Potion transforms one's appearance into that of someone else for a limited time period.[1]

Ingredients

Polyjuice potion is made with Lacewing flies, leeches, fluxweed, knotgrass, powdered horn of a bicorn, shredded skin of a boomslang, and a bit of whoever one wants to change into. The fluxweed needs to be picked at the full moon and the lacewings have got to be stewed for twenty-one days so the potion takes about a month to prepare.[2]

Appearance

The Polyjuice Potion is first described as looking like "thick, dark mud, bubbling sluggishly".[3] When Harry is offically taught about the potion by Horace Slughorn and he again describes it as a "slow-bubbling, mudlike substance".
