Alchemy in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is the art of mixing Ingredients to make Potions, Decoctions, Bombs and Oils. These concoctions can be further improved by putting ability points into Alchemy Skills and upgrading the existing concoctions using rarer ingredients. Decoctions cannot be upgraded via crafting.

The Witcher's work is perilous so preparation is one's first means of success. Before battle Geralt can use Potions to boost his physical prowess by increasing his Vitality, his resistance to blows, his eyesight in dark environments and so on. He can also use Oils on his weapons to make them more effective against specific prey, like Necrophage Oil that hurts Drowners and similar creatures more.

The base for creating/refilling most alchemical products is Alcohol. Common source for many of the required materials in Alchemy is Plants found around the world. Every time you Meditate for at least one hour all of your Potions, Decoctions and Bombs will be replenished by consuming Alcohest or any other available alcohol spirit.

A video guide on how to use Alchemical Crafting can be found here.
