Decoctions in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are a type of alchemical product akin to Potions. They require Mutagens to be created. Also, they increase Toxicity significantly, but offer substantial advantages.

The player will have to manage Geralt's Toxicity levels and the trade-offs of using Decoctions in order to be successful.
Decoctions does not raise your toxicity level, but rather take up an amount of space on your toxicity bar. This means that decoctions cannot take advantage of certain skills in the alchemy tree (eg: delayed recovery, killing spree).
