Bleeding and Wounds

Cobwebs
Very common in the forest, just be careful not to bring the spider along with you! Put it on a wound to soak up and stop (or slow) the bleeding. It may also be used to bind broken bones.

Comfrey
Large leaves and small shaped flowers, which range in color from pink, white, or purple. Its fat, black-colored roots, when chewed into a poultice, can be used to repair broken bones or to soothe wounds.

Dewpot
A herb for wounds and bleedings; especially kitting bleeding.

Dock
Similar to sorrel, the leaves can be chewed up and applied to soothe scratches, although it may sting when being applied to a wound, and it has a very tangy scent and taste.

Goldenrod
A tall, plant with bright, yellow flowers. When chewed into a poultice, it is good for healing wounds.

Raspberry Leaves
A herb used in kittings, Featherwhisker used it at Leopardfoot's kitting in Bluestar's Prophecy. It could be a painkiller, or to help stop bleeding during the kitting.

Sorrel
Green leaves that are used for scratches.

Stinging Nettle
The leaves, when applied to a wound, can bring down swelling. The spiny green seeds can be given to a cat who has been poisoned by crowfood, Twoleg waste, or other toxic objects.

Wormwood
Good for very light pain, also puts cat in sleep in about twenty minutes. Poisonous, when more than two plants
are consumed.


Painkillers

Dandelions
The white liquid inside the stem is used for bee stings. Its roots can also be chewed to act like poppy seeds.

Poppy Seeds
Small black seeds that are shaken out of a dried poppy flower head. They can put a cat to sleep, or soothe shock and distress, but is not recommended for nursing queens. They are given by wetting the paw, pressing on them, causing them to stick to the paw, and then having the sick or injured cat lick them off. Another method is to place them on a leaf, and have the sick or injured cat lick them off there. They also help soothe pain.

Raspberry Leaves
A herb used in kittings, Featherwhisker used it at Leopardfoot's kitting in Bluestar's Prophecy. It could be a painkiller, or to help stop bleeding during the kitting.


Willow Bark
This bark serves as a painkiller.

Wormwood
Good for very light pain, also puts cat in sleep in about twenty minutes. Poisonous, when more than two plants
are consumed.


Bee Stings

Dandelions
The white liquid inside the stem is used for bee stings. Its roots can also be chewed to act like poppy seeds.

Blackberry Leaves
These leaves are chewed into a pulp to treat bee stings. Such as in SkyClan's Destiny when Echosong and Frecklewish used it to treat Clovertail, Shrewtooth, and Ebonyclaw.


Smoke

Honey
A tasteless, golden-colored liquid that is created by bees. While difficult to obtain without being stung, it is great for soothing infections, sore throats, or cats who have breathed smoke. Also helps cats swallow other medicine. It is given to cats using wads of moss soaked in it.


Poison Treatments

Snakeroot
The best remedy for poison, especially for snake bites.

Stinging Nettle
The leaves, when applied to a wound, can bring down swelling. The spiny green seeds can be given to a cat who has been poisoned by crowfood, Twoleg waste, or other toxic objects.

Nettle Seed
Green, spiny seeds. Like yarrow, can be used if a cat has swallowed poison.

Yarrow
A flowering plant whose leaves can be made into a poultice, and applied to wounds to extract poison. Also will make a cat vomit. This was used on Sorrelkit by Cinderpelt when Darkstripe fed her deathberries. The ointment of yarrow can also be used to soften and help heal cracked paw pads. In the old forest, the best place to find yarrow was Snakerocks.


Poison Plants

Deathberries/Yew berries/Night Seeds
They are first seen in Forest of Secrets when Cloudkit, Fireheart, and Cinderpaw are looking for medicine. Cloudkit finds them and attempts to eat them but Cinderpaw tackles him and tells him if he had eaten those berries he would be dead. Later used by Yellowfang to kill Brokentail in the same book. Deathberries are an extremely poisonous species of red berries, and are known to Twolegs as yew berries. They almost killed Sorrelkit when Darkstripe fed them to her in The Darkest Hour, though luckily Cinderpelt was able to save her. The Tribe calls them Night Seeds, when they are used in a plan to kill the mountain lion, Sharptooth, in the book Moonrise. Deathberries were used to tempt the snake that killed Honeyfern in Sunrise. They were also used by Hollyleaf to threaten Leafpool.

Foxglove Seeds
Foxglove seeds are known to be a dangerous medicine. While they can help the heart, they can easily cause paralysis and heart failure. They are often mistaken for poppy seeds. Mentioned when Yellowfang says to Cinderpelt, "You're a dangerous medicine cat! You could kill a cat by confusing foxglove seeds and poppy seeds!"

Holly Berries
Holly berries, while not as dangerous as deathberries, are still a danger to kits. They make an appearance in Twilight; after Leafpool talks to Crowfeather, Sorreltail finds her hiding in a holly bush. Leafpool says she is looking for berries and Sorreltail asks, "Aren't they poisonous?"

Nightshade
Mentioned when Fireheart and Cinderpaw are with Cloudkit. Cloudkit almost eats some deathberries (see below), but is quickly stopped by Cinderpaw. When Cloudkit runs off and calls them to see what he found, she jokes in response that "Maybe it's deadly nightshade this time." Nightshade is extremely toxic to cats and Twolegs, being capable of killing a full-grown human in under forty-five minutes.

Wormwood
Good for very light pain, also puts cat in sleep in about twenty minutes. Poisonous, when more than two plants
are consumed.


Helping Herbs

Beech Leaves
Most medicine cats use beech leaves to carry herbs.

Heather Flower
It can be included in herbal mixtures, to make it easier to swallow.

Ivy Leaf
ShadowClan medicine cats use ivy leaves to store herbs.


Other

Parsley
Stops a queen from producing milk if her kits die, don't need milk anymore, or are producing too much milk. It is what leads Jayfeather to figure out that Leafpool is their real mother.
