Items to Enchant[edit]

The Fortify Alchemy effect can be applied to the following items:

  • Circlets, Hoods, and Helmets
  • Gauntlets and Gloves
  • Necklaces
  • Rings


  • The book Herbalist's Guide to Skyrim lists the ingredient deathbell as "effective in mixtures for boosting one['s] Alchemy skill." This is not true, as there are no ingredients with the fortify alchemy effect.
  • Radiant Raiment in Solitude is a great place to look as it is frequently restocked with several enchanted items.
  • The Seeker of Shadows power from the Dragonborn DLC fortifies your alchemy along with all other stealth skills by 10%.


  • Both a Falmer Helmet and a Circlet (or both a Falmer Helmet and the Krosis mask) can be worn together. Since both Falmer Helmets and Circlets can be enchanted with Fortify Alchemy, this allows you to equip five Alchemy-boosting items at once, instead of four.
