Eating a good sized meal will heal these problems and offer needed nutrients.

Grass: A common plant that is found just about everywhere, it is known for inducing vomit in a non-lethal way.

Lavender: An evergreen shrub with flowers that have pastel bluish purple petals, the plant has strong antifungal qualities, helping to disinfect an area that has a fungal disease. If the plant is turned into mush, you can rub it on wounds to increase its effectiveness. This same mush can also be placed on the forehead to heal headaches.

Peppermint: A strong scented herb that belongs to the mint family, it's all green but produces a purple flower when it's mature. The plant itself usually tastes sweet, but when the flower is present the plant becomes bitter. It is usually found in wet soil conditions with a stable water source nearby and some shade. If the plant is eaten, it can aid digestion and calm bad breath.

Cranberries: A short evergreen shrub that thrives in wet areas, the plant is mainly green with plump red berries that are hard. The taste is strong and bitter, but it has been proven to cure and prevent urinary tract infections. When squished, the plant's skin will release a red dye.

Basil: Mostly known for its wax-looking leaves, this sweet-tasting plant in areas with intense sunlight, moist soil and warm weather. It grows the most during the summer, but during the winter it begins to die out in northern regions due to the cold and snow. There are many types of basil, but this plant usually have green or purple leaves, depending on the type. Ingesting it has been proven to help reduce stress and asthma, and applying it to the skin helps ease bug bites.

White Willow: A type of willow tree known for the undersides of its leaves having a white tone, the bark is usually a grey-brown color. It grows in moist soil in cold or temperate regions, and, though the tree grows fast, it can easily die from natural diseases. Eating its hard bark is known to reduce fevers, headaches and various physical aches such as arthritic pain. It's also an anti-inflammatory. You need to chew thoroughly or you'll get splinters.

Aloe Vera & Red Aloe: Found in dry, rocky climates, the aloe plants are known for wide and thick leaves that store a medicinal gel. It is great for soothing minor cuts, various burns, skin irritation and dry skin. The plant's gel also gives a cooling effect when applied on the skin, helping to relieve various pains. It is most effective when applied directly on the skin instead of the fur, but do not digest it! This plant is poisonous for internal uses.

Milk Thistle: This plant is known for its purple top and green leaves with white markings. It grows in both wet and dry conditions, and it needs at least some light in order to live. The most potent part of the flower are the seeds when they are ripe. It makes a great antioxidant, prevents liver diseases, lowers the potency of poisons that affect the liver, boosts the immune system, and soothes inflammatory cardiac diseases.

Blucrest Shrub: A shrub that looks exactly like the blueberry plant, it isn't until the berries are almost ripe that you notice it's different. The indigo color starts to turn orange, but the top of the berry still has a flared blue crest like a blueberry. The inside of the berry is also orange. It grows specifically in the Archaic Plains and Lunar Meadows, and it has been proven to cure various mental and behavioral disorders, such as depression, paranoia and schizophrenia, when at least several are eaten. It works best fresh, so dry and/or old fruit lowers the potency. The shrub only produces fruit in summer and autumn.

Saphberry: A plant that looks exactly like a raspberry plant, the fruit and leaves near the fruit is a different color than normal. The fruit is a vibrant neon green and the leaves are a soft powder blue. The plant also has a citrus smell to it, like a lemon. This plant is found in the Archaic Plains, Lunar Meadows, Idyll Woods, Divinus Temple and Verite Forest. It grows fruit year-round, and eating the fruit has been known to cure plant poisoning. Within 1-2 hours, depending on how long the poison has been in the animal's system, it heals the animal but forces the animal to go unconscious during that time. Eating this plant without being poisoned has been known to cause erratic behavior and hallucinations.

Starberry: A plant related to the Saphberry, it also seems to look like a raspberry plant, except both the fruit and the leaves near the fruit are a powder blue. Unlike the Saphberry plant, the scent is actually sweet, not citrus-like. It produces fruit year-round. The fruit is only potent during early evening to early morning hours, when it sparkles with divine power. Eating the fruit during those hours will heal any poisoning, whether plant or animal related, but the animal must rest for several days and have a pescetarian diet, or will get a deadly fever.
