A simple packet, typically a liquidy powder, approximately 2 ounces in weight, that can be eaten or poured directly into a wound. Once a character has the salve in hand, it requires one round to administer the salve, either upon themselves or on others. A salve will restores 1d4 damage within the space of a half round, providing healing to a character applying a salve before the enemy can attack.
If a wound is bleeding, the salve will close the wound up immediately, even if it only heals 1 point.
See this page for further details on the manufacture of healing salves (details to be settled later).
