Discover (5/10/25) alchemy recipes
There’s a fair bit that needs to be done in order to unlock these achievements.
At the bare minimum, you’ll need to construct the two Alchemy Workbenches (I and II) in order to craft all of the alchemical recipes. Workbench I allows you to craft recipes using 2 different ingredients, and Workbench II allows you to mix 3 ingredients.
Depending on your play style, you may have all the coin you need to buy your ingredients instead of crafting them yourself. If you do not, which is more likely, then you’ll need to know how to obtain them. Otherwise, skip down to the bottom to find the actual recipes themselves.
You’ll need the following crafting tables to create your various ingredients.
Hand Mixer (For creating Powders)
Alchemy Mill (for creating Solutions)
Distillation Cube (for creating Extracts)
Alchemy Racks can be crafted and act as specialized Storage Trunks in your Alchemy/Writing area. There is also a Distillation Cube II (Unsure what this helps with, besides providing a second Distillation spot - will update when I figure this out)
Powders, Solutions, Extracts
The following is a list of items that can be processed into alchemical ingredients.
The format is: Item Name, (P/S/E) - Ingredient(s) created .
Some items can be processed into multiple ingredients depending on the crafting table used to process it.

Remember to study each item (before you turn it into ingredients) as well as each ingredient to earn points. Select ingredients can be helpful earning those elusive blue points needed for your technologies. Studying the items also shows what that item breaks down into as well.
Dark body parts can’t be found until you progress far enough in the Inquisitor’s quest line (available once you build the tent and sell food and drink at the witch burning, and move on to ‘Convincing the Crown’ part of his quest line). However, once found, the dark body parts are an excellent source of blue points once studied and their respective ingredients studied as well.
