Potion Seller

You gain proficiency with herbalism kits and the Medicine and Nature skills. If you already have proficiency with a skill or tool given to you by this feature, you may select another instead.
Additionally, you may stock potions in your Portable Storefront at half the cost (rounded up) and the time you must take to craft potions and poisons is halved.

Deft Decoctions

3rd-level Apothecary Merchant Trade feature
You can use the Use an Object action to touch a potion, a bottle, flask, vial, or other container and expend a merchant spell slot of 1st-level or higher to instantly create a custom potion or infuse a potion with additional effects, choosing one effect per level of the spell slot expended. An effect cannot be chosen more than once. Potions may be used as a part of the same Use an Object action you made to create the potion.
Potion Effects are listed at the end of this subclass and last until the potion is used or until the end of your next long rest. The potions you create are magic items for the purposes of your Bang for Your Buck feature and have a type from either Blast or Consumable. Blast effects cannot be selected for Consumable potions and vice versa, unless otherwise specified in the effect’s description:

Blast. You may also throw the potion at a point within 60 feet of you. Any creature within a 10-foot radius circle centered on that point must succeed on a saving throw against your spell save DC. On a failure, the creature is subjected to the effects of the potion. The radius of the potion increases by 10 feet per level of the spell slot expended above 1st level.

The potion must be consumed in order to gain its benefits.
