Commentary

Notes

The term "elixir" is often associated with solutions created by alchemists to give immortality, which makes the name "everlasting" appropriate. These so-called Elixirs of Life are found in the legends from different cultures around the world. Nicolas Flamel, in the Potter universe, created the Elixir of Life using the Philosopher's Stone.
