Substances in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are a subcategory of Alchemy Ingredients, which are crafting materials that Geralt can collect and use to craft Witcher tools and other items via Alchemy. Substances are comprised of minerals, powders, pastes and liquids that are used to create a chemical reaction with other ingredients during the alchemy process. They can be obtained as random loot from opponents and treasure chests, as well as purchased from Alchemists and other merchants.
