I have plenty of potion ingredients and I'm low on cash, so I want to make potions to sell for profit. What are the most profitable potions to make money off?

EDIT: I'm able to craft master level potions, but the best would be a list that contains all potion prices. like this list for gems.

Are you able to craft Novice, Journeyman or Master potions? –  Jed Oliver Mar 3 '12 at 16:53

I respec'ed to level 10 in Alchemy and Merchantile for this and here's the numbers I calculated. In a lot of cases, the cost of a potion is less than the cost of its constituting ingredients. You can decide for yourself which is more valuable here.

Potions:

Potion                                      Cost    Ingredients Cost
Greater Damage Boost                        1251                1550

Master Healing Potion                        969                1329

On the surface, I think it would be more worthwhile to sell your Essences and just brew Greater potions for selling. Possibly even sell your ingredients instead of brewing them as they might add up to being more than if they were brewed. –  Jeff Mercado Mar 4 '12 at 3:35
