Look at that shoddy armor you're wearing. Better buy some more healing potions.

The Merchant

The Lesser Healing Potion is a recovery potion that restores 50 health and inflicts Potion Sickness for 60 seconds when used. This duration can be reduced via the Philosopher's Stone or Charm of Myths. As its name suggests, it heals the least amount of health out of the four healing potions.

In addition to being crafted, Lesser Healing Potions can also be found naturally in pots (only in pre-Hardmode), generated chests, Wooden and Pearlwood Crates, or dropped from most early pre-Hardmode bosses.

Lesser Healing Potions can also be purchased for 3 SC from the Merchant, or from the Skeleton Merchant(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) during moon phases 2, 4, 6, and 8: Moon phase 2 (Waning Gibbous) Moon phase 4 (Waning Crescent) Moon phase 6 (Waxing Crescent) Moon phase 8 (Waxing Gibbous)

Naturally-placed Lesser Healing Potions appear frequently on platforms in the Dungeon (along with Lesser Mana Potions). When encountered in placed form, they function as Placed Bottle crafting stations. They also show the "bottle" tooltip on the map. They can be freed with a pickaxe or Open / Activate and retrieved, (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and can be placed by the player by crafting them into Decorative Healing Potions.

It is the first tier of healing potion, preceding the Healing Potion, Greater Healing Potion, and Super Healing Potion(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).
