A Summoning potion restores a player's Summoning points, much like a prayer potion. It can be made at level 40 Herblore by putting a clean spirit weed into a vial of water and then adding a cockatrice egg. This gives 92 herblore experience. As with prayer potions, this potion only restores points; it will not add points above the user's level. It restores 7-31 Summoning points (7 + 25% of Summoning level) per dose.
This potion looks similar to a normal attack potion, but this potion's colour is a little brighter. It also looks like a prayer potion, but a little bit darker. This item is not very popular due to the large number of small obelisks.

This table is based on the Grand Exchange prices of a vial of water, the spirit weed, and cockatrice egg. It is accurate assuming all three items are bought from the Grand Exchange and the Summoning potion is sold afterwards.

Summoning potions are generally used by slayers to allow them to remain at a tasks location for a longer period of time (such as beyond the normal length a summon can persist). This is particularly useful for the Bunyip, Unicorn stallion, and other healing familiars, as well as beasts of burden, as you can easily be out of summoning points before they fall into the threshold of which you can renew the familiar. Summoning potions are also helpful when using a steel titan familiar so you can unload many special attacks causing a lot of damage.
Summoning potions are also useful for those who wish to remain at a location for a lengthy period of time depending on just a familiar for healing, or are fighting something that requires a familiar's special attack.
