Timsin root and Silverleaf Good for headaches

Boiled catfern and powdered mavinsleaf Tastes very foul. Does nothing useful other than that.

Nightsbane and sheepstongue Clears blurring or darkening visions, eye infections, or failure of sight due to sudden bursts of light, or infectious poisons. Futile against the effects of being blinded by the One Power.

Gheandin blossom with dogworth and/or willow bark worked into a paste The taste is rather perplexing, spicy and bitter at the same time, so a little honey will be of no harm. Use regularly to relieve heart or inner side pains; constant treatment has lead to remarkable healings of malignant tissues and heart problems

Belladonna powder from dried berries with twice the amount of Gheandin powder and a lot of white healall powder. Add hot boiling water and work into a paste.
