In traditional belief an elixir is a transport device for enchanted magic’s. Elixirs, or potions, are liquids that have been enchanted with sorcery to issue a spell's effects upon a biological imbiber of the drink or a material object doused by it.In 1492, Elijah requested a potion that would resurrect Katerina after the sacrifice ritual. However, Katerina escaped before knowing of the elixir, and became a vampire instead. 518 years later, Elijah planned to giving the elixir to Elena, however after being forced to drink vampire blood, the potion’s effect became useless. It is probably still in Elijah's possession.
