Using Jungle Saplings with an Awkward potion should create Potions of Haste. Why? Several reasons:
* In real life, orangutans use the leaves of certain trees to treat muscle soreness. While we're using Saplings instead of leaves (though I used the latter when I first came up with this), it's pretty much the same principle.
* **Why not leaves?** Simple: They're too common, and Jungle Saplings are the rarest type of sapling, compounded by the fact that they have the lowest drop rate of any sapling. Still, once you have a farm going, they have a rarity competitive to Sugar, which is used for the Haste Potion's counterpart, the Potion of Speed.
* Using a Fermented Spider Eye on one would turn it into a potion of Mining Fatigue, which would be useful in PVP and PVE combat, slowing down enemies' attack speed so that you can kill them faster while they can barely land a hit. (Yes, haste and mining fatigue affect attack speed.)
* **Won't this make Beacons useless?** Not completely, as you have a constant effect from them within range. This is mainly for when you don't have a beacon yet or are out exploring.
