Cleaning herbsEdit

Cleaning Herbs is a simple task you have to perform before you can add a herb to a vial to create an unfinished potion.

For information about the cost/profit on cleaning herbs or creating unfinished potions, see Calculator:Herblore/Herbs

BoostsEdit

Herblore can be temporarily boosted through the use of spicy stew, the Herblore cape, greenman's ale and greenman's ale (m)

A botanical pie will boost a player's herblore level by +4.

By eating a spicy stew (made by adding brown spice to a stew), herblore can be boosted +5 or -5. However, a +5 boost in any skill is quite rare and a +5 boost is commonly sought after. Greenman's ale (purchased in Yanille bar) boosts herblore by 1, and the matured version of the ale boosts herblore by 2, however the matured version can be quite expensive.

PotionsEdit

Once you add a herb to a vial of water, you get an unfinished potion; you must add a secondary ingredient to finish the potion completely.
