Doxycide Potion: What is it, Ingredients, Where is it from, and More

What is Doxycide?

The Doxycide is a potion used in the novel Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It was invented by Professor Snape during his time as a potions master at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Using this potion, Harry destroys all the Doxys that were threatening Draco Malfoy’s greenhouse.

There are a number of theories as to what doxycide might be. Most fans believe that the potion kills any living thing, including house elves because its effects have been shown on humans and other creatures.

However, it has been confirmed by JK Rowling herself that Doxycide does not kill the house elves. It is possible that Doxycide knocks out living creatures, rendering them unconscious.

One of the biggest effects that doxycide has on humans is its ability to burn their skin. This could be a parting gift from Rowling to her readers, as it effectively demonstrates how painful Doxys are to touch.

Where does Doxycide come from?

Doxycide is made and sold by Miriam Strout, who works as the matron at Hogwarts. When cleaning up after a mischievous student or pet, she takes out her vial of doxycide and douses it with a swish and flick.
