The plants around you can provide more remedies than the finest hospital or temple, and you are skilled in their use.

PFS StandardHerbalist Dedication Feat 2

ArchetypeDedication
Source Advanced Player's Guide pg. 176
Archetype Herbalist
Prerequisites trained in Nature, Natural Medicine

You can create remedies and other herbal products. You gain the basic alchemy benefits, though they apply only for herbal items: alchemical items with the healing trait, plus antidote and antiplague. You gain batches of infused reagents per day equal to your level or half your level if you didn't make your daily preparations in the wilderness. Your advanced alchemy level for creating these is 1 and doesn't increase on its own. You become an expert in Nature and can use Nature instead of Crafting to Craft herbal items. You don't need to be trained in Crafting or have the Alchemical Crafting feat to do so, and you can use healer's tools instead of alchemist's tools.

Special You can't select another dedication feat until you have gained two other feats from the herbalist archetype.

When using Natural Medicine to Treat Wounds, you can spend a batch of herbs to gain the +2 circumstance bonus from having fresh ingredients, even if not in wilderness. If you spend a batch of herbs in wilderness, you gain a +4 circumstance bonus instead.

PFS StandardPoultice Preparation Feat 4

Source Advanced Player's Guide pg. 176
Archetype Herbalist
Prerequisites Herbalist Dedication

When you create an herbal elixir, you can prepare it as a poultice instead. A poultice gains the oil trait (but remains alchemical, not magical) and loses the elixir and ingested traits. You can apply a poultice by Interacting with one hand. When you apply a poultice, in addition to the item's normal effects, the recipient can attempt an immediate flat check to recover from a single source of persistent acid, bleed, or fire damage, with the DC reduction from appropriate assistance.

PFS StandardEndemic Herbs Feat 6

Archetype
Source Advanced Player's Guide pg. 176
Archetype Herbalist
Prerequisites Herbalist Dedication, trained in Survival

During your daily preparations, you find medicinal plants endemic to your location. Until your next preparations, you can spend an additional batch of herbs to add a benefit to an item you create with your herbalism. The benefit of the special herbs affects the creature that the item is applied to; if the benefit is not immediate, it lasts for 1 minute unless otherwise stated. This adjustment counts as an additive, so you can't include another additive without spoiling the item.

  • Desert For 1 hour, treat environmental heat effects as if they were one step less severe.
