Skyward Sword tips and tricks
Bottles and their contents
Here are the locations of these five handy bottles:
Given by the potion shop woman in the Bazaar when you talk to her for the first time.
Found in a small chest, at the back to the right.
Given by Parrow after saving his sister Orielle. Talk to a man who is worried about his sister on the square. She went away with her loftwing towards Fun Fun Island to the southwest. Agree to help him, then fly towards Fun Fun Island. A little before reaching the island you may see a loftwing lying on a small island. Land on it and speak to the girl. She tells you that her loftwing is injured and can't move anymore. It needs a special potion for loftwings which is given by her brother. Give her a hand by flying back to Skyloft. On the square explain the problem to Parrow, who gives you some Mushroom Spores in an empty bottle (if your bag isn't full). If your bag is full, leave an item in the Item Check. Go back to the small island and talk to Orielle to give her the medicine. You can keep the empty bottle for yourself.
After getting the Mogma Mitts, go back to the room with a fire hand. Get rid of it as the previous hands and follow the path to the west to find a chest (check out the walkthrough).
Small island southwest of the Isle of Songs
After activating the Goddess Cube nb 26 located on the Volcano Summit (to the right when arriving), land on this island and dig underground. Come out in the northwest of the island and climb the vines.
