Splash Potions in Minecraft can be thrown by the players and they break when hitting the target area. Upon breaking, the effect of the potion is spread to any mob or entity within the range of the potion.

The effectiveness and duration of the potion depends upon the proximity that the mob is within the area. If the mob is hit directly, then it exercises full effectiveness, but if they are at the very edge the effectiveness is likewise, reduced.

Players can also throw the potions at themselves to get the buffs and effects from the potions.

One fun fact is that a Splash Water bottle deals 1 health damage to endermen, striders, snow golems and blazes. This is not effective against any other mobs.

They are also used in Crafting Lingering Potions.
