What Does a Lingering Potion Do in Minecraft?

When you use a Lingering Potion, it creates a cloud on the ground that grants a status effect to anyone who steps inside. The cloud will last for 30 seconds, slowly shrinking until it disappears.

The effects of Lingering Potions are diluted compared to other variants. A Lingering Potion of Healing, for instance, will restore half the amount of health as a regular or Potion of Healing. That said, the effect stacks if you stay inside the cloud, so you can easily replenish all of your health.
