Because these are often used to train Herblore, and adding Clean dwarf weed to a Vial of water gives little experience, many players avoid the tedium of making unfinished potions and buy them directly from the Grand Exchange. This opens up an opportunity to make unfinished dwarf weed potions for profit.

You can sometimes make money by just using clean dwarf weed on a vial of water, but the real trick is using the scroll of cleansing. This Dungeoneering reward costs 20,000 tokens, and gives you a 10% chance of not using up a clean dwarf weed when creating a dwarf weed potion (unf). This means that, on average, you would only need 9 clean dwarf weed and 10 vials of water to create 10 dwarf weed potion (unf). Getting this scroll can take up to 10 hours depending on your Dungeoneering level and other skills, but it is absolutely worth it if you plan to make unfinished potions.

Before buying the ingredients in bulk, make sure that the method is profitable by making one unfinished potion and testing the profit. If the profit is high enough, buy clean dwarf weed and vials of water in a 9:10 ratio; it may be worthwhile to put in an offer for clean dwarf weed at a lower price, so they don't buy instantly but they steadily come in. Withdraw 14 dwarf weed and 14 vials of water, and click on a well. A menu will open, and click to make-all. After the inventory is complete, you should be left with 14 unfinished dwarf weed potions and 2 herbs. Deposit your inventory, withdraw 14 herbs and 14 vials of water, and repeat. Each inventory should take about 23 seconds with banking, which means you can make around 2,000 potions per hour.

Using a Portable well is recommended because it has a 5% chance of generating an extra unfinished potion, and it is also useful if shared with other players. The friend's chat "Portables" is used frequently for this. Simply join the FC and ask if anyone is hosting wells.

However, if you choose to use your own wells, the profit will be reduced by -449,388 per hour.

Once you've finished making your potions, sell them on the Grand Exchange. Dwarf weed potions however tend to have a lower price than a clean or grimy dwarf weed so it may sometimes either result in a huge profit or a huge loss. |Money making guide/Making dwarf weed potions with scroll of cleansing=Money making guide/Making dwarf weed potions with scroll of cleansing|Money making guide/Making dwarf weed potions with scroll of cleansing=Money making guide/Making dwarf weed potions with scroll of cleansing|=|=|%ARGS%=§Activity = Making dwarf weed potion (unf)§dwarf weed potions with scroll of cleansing and Portable wells §Image = File:Making unfinished potions.png§400px §Profit = ({GEP§Dwarf weed potion (unf)§2310}-{GEP§Clean dwarf weed§1980}-{GEP§Vial of water§2200}) §Skill = 70 {scm§Herblore}
