A Strength potion is a potion made by using a limpwurt root on a tarromin potion (unf), requiring 12 Herblore, yielding a Strength potion(3) and 50 Herblore experience. A dose of Strength potion provides a temporary skill boost to Strength equal to 3 + 10% of the player's current Strength level, rounded down. This is less than the super Strength's boost of 5 + 15% of the player's current Strength level, rounded down.

After Barbarian Herblore Training, roe or caviar can be added to a Strength potion(2), requiring 14 Herblore, yielding a Strength mix and 17 Herblore experience. A Strength mix has 2 doses, boosts Strength equal to 3 + 10% of the player's current Strength level, rounded down, and heals 3 Hitpoints if roe is used or 6 Hitpoints if caviar is used.

A Strength potion(2) can occasionally be obtained from a chest inside the maze random event.

A Strength potion(3) can be purchased from the Warriors' Guild potion shop for 15 coins. A Strength potion(4) can be purchased from the Apothecary in Varrock for 5 coins, a limpwurt root, and red spiders' eggs.

A Strength potion(4) is a reward from Jekyll and Hyde random events if a guam leaf is given to Dr. Jekyll. If the player talks to Dr. Jekyll and does not give a herb, then Dr. Jekyll gives a Strength potion(2).

Having the Apothecary make a Strength potion is a requirement for completing the medium Varrock Diary and creating a Strength potion in the The Deeper Lode pub in Lovakengj is a requirement for completing the easy Kourend & Kebos Diary.
