Blaze Powder is an item that was first added in the Beta 1.9 pre-release 2 and 0.12 for the Pocket Edition. It comes from a Blaze Rod, which is only obtainable when a Blaze is slain.


Blaze Powder is mainly used for brewing. Not only is it used as the fuel for a Brewing Stand, but it also serves as a potion ingredient. When brewed into an awkward potion, it creates a Potion of Strength and a mundane potion with a Water bottle. Blaze powder can also be combined with an Ender Pearl to make an Eye of Ender which is used to detect and activate a Stronghold's End Portal. They are also used with Slimeballs to craft Magma Cream and Coal/Charcoal and Gunpowder to craft Fire Charges.

  • As of 1.9, blaze powder is required to operate a brewing stand: when it is put into a specific slot, it allows an item to be put into the top slot 20 times. This is because a brewing stand was put into igloo basements, but the developers wanted to force a player to go to the Nether in order to brew; so, as such, blaze powder was given this purpose.
