Poultices

In general, Gribendr has learned that mixing powdered bone from a natural predator will help heal wounds caused by a beast. Example, wounds caused by a giant boar could be healed faster with powdered wolf’s teeth or claws.

Also, if a beast has no natural predators then using the eyes of a natural prey species will improve the healing of wounds caused by that beast. Example, a wolf’s bite could be healed faster with rabbit eyes mixed into the poultice.

If these kinds of items are available then I think a +1 to amounts healed with a healer’s kit would be reasonable. This should all just be folk medicine things that provide a little benefit appropriate to village healers trying to help their neighbors.
