Losta Flower

A small white flower that turns a deep pink as you reach the center. These flowers grow on berry branches, and while the berries are bitter, the flower itself is very sweet and can be eaten as is. Eating the petals whole will give one a heightened libido while boiling the petals in water will dilute the effects.

Bjella Flower

Red flower with black stripes and has two blossoms on each stem. Blossoms grow upwards, producing a gel-like substance in their centers. The weight of the gel eventually causes the flowers to fold over into their distinct bell shape, at which point the gel can no longer be harvested. The gel can be used topically to prevent or heal external infection while the petals may be eaten raw or otherwise for internal infections.

Bal Flower

Also known as Fire Flower. A rare flower that blooms at high altitudes in the north, it is distinguished by its deep red and blue coloration. A single petal may be steeped in hot water to create a tonic that makes one feel tipsy, while consuming pieces of the plant raw will induce vomiting. In moderation, this can be helpful to those who have ingested things they shouldn't have, but too much will lead to severe internal damage and even death. May also be used as a last resort to fight the most severe illnesses

They are distinguished from other roots by their light grey-blue colour. Chewing on the root will release a juice with energy-boosting capabilities. However, consuming too much will lead to overstimulation and cause one to “crash”.
