Medicine through poultices and salves, as differentiated from medicine through divine channels, has long been practiced by healers and sages since the time before writing.

Most modern medicines trace their roots back to Kadanian Rojiella, or Red Grass, a furry, fernlike grass plant known to grow in the most poisonous corners of Kadanian swampland. Red Grass is extremely bitter when chewed, but can be made palatable by grinding with mortar and pestle and mixed with sweet cider.
- Chauncy's Medicine, s. 2.
Deceptively similar looking to Kadanian Red Grass is Kadanian Blue Grass, though its physiology is completely different from Rojiella. Blue Grass, sometimes known as Moon Grass, is actually the frond-like extensions that grow on cave fungi known as White Aziema. The base of Aziema is actually highly toxic, but the fronds are extremely vitalizing.
- Chauncy's Medicine, s. 8.
Like with Rojiella, derivative breeds of Aziema fungus are used throughout the continents in vitalizing medicine. A blue moss that grows in the southern and eastern continents is blended with spiced mead to create a powerful elixir that can invigorate without excessively dulling the senses.

In monasteries to Devara, clerics prepare special cloths of canvas as tools for reenergizing paladins and healers. Cloths of canvas are trimmed, hemmed, and elegantly embroidered, then soaked for 7 days each in baths of perfume and blue moss paste.

...Dorians prefer Leuryte Crystal, mined in the mountains of Markdor. Delicately mined with great difficulty, the crystal is easily crushed, disintegrating and absorbing into the skin of whomever crushes it.

Rojiella and Aziema derivatives have been found in strong wine. The particular techniques for preparing and fermenting these wines is unkown, as they are extremely rare and of nebulous origins.
