The magic potion is the potion brewed by Getafix, that gives the Gaulish warriors superhuman strength. It is brewed from various herbs, found around the village and the forests surrounding it. Getafix is the only one who knows how to make the potion. The secret can only be passed down through the druids, by word of mouth.
The Romans, constantly bested by the inhabitants of the the tiny Gaulish village, are desperate to find out the secrets of the potion. They have never, however, actually found out how to make it.
