PostSubject: Herbs & Poisons   Sat Jan 17, 2015 11:35 am

NONPOISONOUS

 Aghada Leaf
This small leafy plant grows in clumps along the roots of trees. They prefer shade, and they will rarely be found out in the open. The leaves are a yellowish-green in the spring and summer, and they turn a sickly brownish-green in the fall. When ingested, it cures common illnesses, such as coughs, fevers, and soreness.
 Agrimony
This plant's light yellow flowers have multiple uses. They act as a minor painkiller when crushed into a paste and smoothed onto wounds, and they accelerate the healing of open sores. The plant has jagged leaves and often grows at the base of trees.
 Angelica
This extremely pungent plant must only be used in small doses. It acts as a sedative when the fumes are inhaled at a close range, and they are used for stomach aches when the juices of the leaves are taken in. This plant has small bristly leaves that grow in large bunches. It turns a dull red in the fall. Although not common, it is a known fact that certain wolves can become rather addicted to the sweet scent and calming effect.
 Blue Lobelia
The flowers of the Blue Lobelia reduce coughs and cause inflammation to subside. The juice of this plant's roots is used to reduce inflammation when smeared on a wound, while chewing (but not swallowing) the leaves will cull a cough. The plant is a yellowish-green plant that only blooms during the spring. Its flowers are a vibrant red.
 Burdock
The broad leaves of the Burdock plant, when pressed against a bleeding sore, release oils that encourage blood clotting, slowing the flow of the blood. This plant grows like a fern in clumps along watery areas, and the leaves often wither within a few days of harvesting.
 Birch Bark

The bark of the common birch tree is flaky and is easily pulverized. When inhaled through the mouth, the powder will suppress nausea. When mixed with liquid and swallowed, it works to lower fevers.
 Chamomile
Chamomile is a low-growing plant, creeping or trailing, its tufts of leaves and flowers a foot high. The blooms appear in the late days of summer and are borne solitary on long stalks, drooping when in bud. The aromatic fragrance gives no hint of its bitterness of taste. It can be used to calm anxiety, ease stress, and may have a positive effect on those with short attention spams. It can also used to help heal cuts, scrapes, and abrasions and is a great poultice to reduce swelling.
 Catnip
The anxiety-inducing qualities of catnip are counterbalanced by its medicinal purposes. This plant, when used in small quantities, upon ingestion, lowers fevers and reduces physical irritation. In higher quantities, it can give a rather euphoric and relaxed high. The plant is common in many temperatures and areas, making it easy to obtain. It has coarse leaves with easily recognizable red veins through the leaves.
 Dragon Fruit
The red bulbs on the dragon plant, known as a dragon fruit, is hard on the outside, but it is filled with a thick liquid on the inside. When smoothed over wounds, it removes infections and reduces inflammation. The dragon plant is most often found near other plants, as it feeds off the nutrients of other plants.
 Echinacea
The Echinacea flowers are easy to spot. They have vibrant pink petals and a plushy brown center. The flowers grow in patches, often in clearings where they can be exposed to direct sun. When the petals are mushed, the salve combats infection. It can also be used for a minor numbing agent in the mouth, but the juices are poisonous if directly ingested.
 Ginger Root
The Ginger root is a light brown root that can easily be sniffed out. It has a very distinct scent, and it can easily be identified by the tuffs of wispy-like grasses above the dirt. The root, when chewed, relieves stomach issues, helps throat problems, and eliminates minor health issues. It also can be used as a preventative for illnesses in pups.
 Ivy
This overgrowing plant spreads across everything it touches. The three-pronged leaves often have a lighter green interior portion and a darker green outer spot. The chewed leaves help with depression and, and the juices act as a heavy painkiller, numbing the area that is rubbed with it. As in the human world, some wolves can become overwhelmed by the narcotic effects, and lose themselves to addiction.
 Lavender
This herb is narrow-leaved and grows 1 to 3 feet high, occasionally taller if the environment is favorable. It can be used for restlessness, insomnia, nervousness, and even depression. It is also used for a variety of digestive complaints including loss of appetite, vomiting, nausea, and upset stomach. Some people use lavender for headaches, toothaches, sprains, nerve pain, sores, and joint pain. It can also be used to repel mosquitoes and other parasites.
 Licorice Root
The Licorice Root is quite deceptive in its name, as it is actually an above-ground plant. It has jagged white flowers and round-tipped, green leaves. The flowers contain medicinal purposes, but the leaves are extremely toxic. The flower accelerates the effects of other herbs and reduces the toxicity of herbs.
 Nicotiana Benthamiana
This close relative of the Tobacco plant is among the hardiest of its family, able to grow in arid and rocky areas, as well as near tropical ones. Based on where it grows, the plant can be up to 1.5 feet tall (In less sunny areas) or flat but with a diameter of nearly 20cm (In dryer areas) The entire plant is a yellowish green, and rather difficult to see offhand. It contains many stimulants, and can keep a wolf awake for nearly a day straight from a small dose, and can wake up even the most heavily sleeping brute with its scent. However, prolonged use can stunt growth, and the plant is highly addictive, as it  contains Nicotine.
 Rosemary
Amazing, versatile rosemary is quite valued for it's scent, taste, and properties. Crushing this plant into an oil or paste combats mental fatigue, increasing concentration and memory. This herb stimulates the central nervous system and circulation which also makes it beneficial for low blood pressure and sluggishness. It can also be used to alleviate the pain of sprains and arthritis. Many also use the plant for it's fresh, zesty scent.
 Sage
Hardy, evergreen, short-lived, and having bright leaves, sage is a great medicinal herb. It can be used for digestive problems, including loss of appetite, stomach pain, and heartburn. It is also used for reducing overproduction of saliva, for depression and memory loss. Sage is applies directly for gum infections, sore mouth, throat or tongue; and swollen, painful nasal passages. Some people inhale the aromas crushed sage gives off to help poor breathing.
 Thyme
Thyme is an herb that grows low to the ground with numerous rich green leaves that let off a quite pleasant scent when crushed. The flowers, leaves, and oils can be used as medicine to treat respiratory problems, sore throat, joint pain, and also stomach pain. It is also used to increase urine flow to disinfect and as an appetite stimulant. One can also apply thyme directly for all types of dental care such as sore mouth and even bad breath. Sometimes because of it's pleasant flavor it is added to poultices and other remedies.
 White Poppy
The petals of this delicate white flower have a wispy look and are soft to the touch, almost velvety. They grow on high stems and are easy to spot among other flowers. The stem is a heavy painkiller, while the flower itself reduces excitement and relaxes the mind.


POISONOUS

 Aconite
Also known as Acontium, Wolf's Bane, and Blue Rocket. It has a fleshy, spindle-shaped root, pale-colored when young, but subsequently acquiring a dark brown skin. The stem is about 3 feet high, with dark green, glossy leaves, deeply divided in palmate manner and flowers in clusters of a dark blue color. The leaves, stem, flowering tops, and root are all extremely toxic if ingested, the root being the most poisonous part. Aconite contains a strong, fast-acting poison that causes severe side effects such as nausea, vomiting, weakness, breathing problems, heart problems, and eventually, death.
 Astragalus Bulb
The Astragalus is a beautiful plant, and it seems to hold no secrets. It has a bulbous head that varies in colors, and it has a slender stem like a massive blade of grass. But underneath the soil it hides the ugly thing that is the cause of death. The bulb is about three inches across, and is a perfect dirty sphere. The root is low in the ground, and is hard to extract. It causes fever which can lead to a temporary failure of the immune system.
 Nightshade
The nightshade plant has dark green leaves and takes the form of a shrub. The root is thick, fleshy and whitish, about 6 inches long or more, and branching. The fresh plant, when crushed, exhales a disagreeable odor, almost disappearing on drying, and the leaves have a bitter taste when both fresh and dry. Ingesting too much of this plant can result in death without Shaman treatment right away. If they manage to get it out of their system by vomiting, even then they will be very sick for the next few days.
 Poison Hemlock
Poison Hemlock can grow to be about 6 to 10 ft. tall. It has leaves and white flower-heads resembling those of parsnips, carrots, and water hemlock. It has a fleshy, white taproot, a main stem with characteristic light red spots and a disagreeable smell. All plant parts are poisonous, the seeds containing the highest concentration of poison.
