The first ingredient of a potion is a herb. Herbs are obtained as drops by killing monsters. When you’ll find a herb it will be unidentified. In order to identify this you will need to have a specific Herblore level. (The better the herb is the higher your level has to be.)
If you really want to clean identify herb and you don’t have the required Herblore level, you can travel to Nardah which is located in the Kharidian Desert. In Nardah is a woman called Zahur. She can clean your herbs by talking to her for 200gp. If you choose to do this, no exp will be gained.
