Is it possible to use potions on hirelings and if so how?

Some potions are used on you (those with drinking animation), some (those with casting animation) are used on targeted ally.
I won't give you list, I don't remember, but generally all buffs and cures are on drinker, while loot boosts and some pots (I think curse pots, but I'm not sure) are used on target.

The ones that you can use on a target include a note in the description (at least they used to) -- something about including a funnel for using the potion on party members.

If you mean SP potions, then no.

But some hirelings , specially Gold seal ones, can be dismissed and then recalled with a nice full SP bar :)

But also remember that if they are dismissed in a quest they cannot be re-summoned for 5 minutes (IIRC).

Perfect time to go get a sandwich. :D

This is why you carry 2 different hirelings.

The (curse/fear/blindness/disease/poison) Removal potions have funnels which allow them to be used on other characters, including hirelings, if you have the potion on a hotbar and click it while having the target character targeted.

Also remember that guild pots won't work on others. I remember finding that out the hard way. :)
