Healing & Herbs
Introduction
On this page you will find everything you need to know for aspiring healer characters about the various plants and healing herbs that can be found throughout Doutaini. Although the Earth and Divine packs both have healing powers, they are not always ready (or willing) to lend a hand, but fortunately Doutaini is blessed with a rich assortment of plants and herbs that skilled healers can utilize.

Healing Arts

Here in Doutaini, any wolf may become a healer even if they are not in Earth or Divine (or any pack for that matter). Some wolves come to the lands already knowing a little, some come knowing a lot. Wolves born in Doutaini usually take advice from a teacher, or they can grow information over time with trial and error. There is no limit to how your characters develop their knowledge of plants and healing. Some wolves are caregivers by nature, and some make a job out of it by becoming Healers in their packs.
Healing & Herb Questions

Can I only use the herbs listed?

Nope! While this is a large list and we've tried to be as detailed as possible, there is a chance we haven't caught everything or even missed some very common herbs. No worries! We are always hoping to expand our herbal library. If you have a plant that isn't on our list, simply send in a suggestion; please include plant name, where it's found, and what it's commonly used to treat.

Herbs with multiple uses?

Why yes, many (if not all) of the plants listed below can actually be used to treat a multitude of symptoms. For the sake of convenience, we have only one use listed here for each herb. However, if you have the knowledge then feel free to use the herbs however you like (provided they are not made up uses.)

Is there a certain way to heal?

Yes and no. Many of the herbs and plants and fruits listed are only potent in a certain form. Some herbs need to be dried first. However, if it is not listed specifically, then you are free to do your own research in how to heal! Some healers may like to mix medication, such as giving Honey with Coltsfoot to soothe a sore throat. Some may even want to use their elemental abilities to cook certain ingredients. If you can look up a method of preparation, you are free to do it!

Where do these plants come from?

Because Doutaini doesn't have a set geographical location in our world, the types and varieties of plants found here are without limit. European, American, South American, African; a wide variety of plants can be found in the lands of Doutaini. Also, the gods might have something to do with it.
Plants & Herbs List
Spread across the lands are a wide variety of plants and herbs that can be utilized for many reasons. Below we have compiled a list of common ailments and remedies for use.
Each plant has a small picture, description, and the medicinal use of the plant. Locations of plants are also listed.
