[Filter: HP folks, Snow, Bigby, and those who have asked about the Wolfsbane Potion]
I have put together a list of the ingredients, and the instructions for all the good it is likely to do us immediately.
There are three ingredients that in our world are magical in nature and thus not likely to be easily found in this world. There are additionally ten other ingredients that while mundane in origin may or may not exist in their form here in this world. Either they may be extinct, they may never have existed here, or they may be altered in such a way that it would make the potion impossible to reproduce.
I wish to state very clearly that this potion is not your simple stone soup. What goes into it and when matters tremendously. Three of its primary ingredients are poisons, and are found in use throughout many potions within Death, Despaire, and Delirium: Potions to Feed the Deepest Fears because they are intended to kill. In the case of this potion, it 'kills' the wolf for the period of the full and Belby's work was revolutionary in that way, but as you might imagine considering that fact it was not without cost and that cost was in lives of werewolves.
The end result is a potion that has improved many lives, but I cannot guarantee a successful potion here under current circumstances and likely could not even with the magical ingredients.
If you have questions ask them and I will answer what I can.
