Features and Overview

A Link to the Past

The Potion Shop is located in the northeast region of the Light World in A Link to the Past. It is the home of Syrup who brews Potions outside, and the Apprentice who maintains the shop inside. They brew and sell Potions in three varieties: Medicine of Life, Medicine of Magic and Medicine of Life and Magic. If Link brings Syrup a Mushroom and waits for a while, she will produce Magic Powder and leave it for him in the shop. The Apprentice will offer a Link a free sample of the Medicine of Life, refilling his hearts on the spot.

Oracle of Seasons

In Oracle of Seasons, Syrup's Potion Shop is located in the middle of the Sunken City and can only be accessed in winter, when the water has frozen. Syrup do not sell anything here until Link trades her a Mushroom for the Wooden Bird.
