- 1 Horglup juice
- 1 Dictam Leaf
Note that the Wiggenweld potion only takes 15 seconds to brew, so you can make a lot of it in a very short time, especially if you have several cauldrons.

Horglup juice can be collected from blue mushrooms that grow everywhere in the wild, and dittany leaves can be grown in the Room of Requirement. To do this, buy the seeds needed for Magic Turnip has Hogsmeade, then plant them in a pot. Thanks to this, you will never run out of Wiggenweld potions!
