Potions in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, are Items that Geralt can use to temporarily buff his stats or grant certain effects, such as the ability to see in the dark, vitality regeneration, etc. Geralt can have two such Potions equipped at any given time to use on the fly. The following is a list of Potions in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the ingredients needed to make them

(Please keep in mind that the locations for most of these diagrams are inaccurate, as loot found in chests is generally random. Some of these are consistent, however. For example, nearly all of the Superior Potions that are sold by Gremist, according to this list, will consistently be sold by him. The automatic access to Thunderbolt via tutorial in White Orchard is also consistent):

      Vanilla Version of the game Enhanced Cat03 Sep 2016 12:12  

      In the vanilla version(unpatched) version of the game, the lady that sells the Enhanced Cat recipe does NOT sell it after you complete her quest regardless of the outcome, simply spewing generic lines or nothing at all. If you are playing unpatched and happen to be in the area, your only two bets are either suck it up till NG+ or load a prior save point where you haven't done the quest in question. This affects multiple merchants on the vanilla variant but unknown how many and which ones. Also a sneaking suspicion it is the one's involved in quests however remains to be seen.
