Herbal Lore represents a character's knowledge of herbs, botany and natural substances. To mix an Alchemical Elixir into a food or drink, or to apply a Coating or Weapon Coating, you must have Herbal Lore. This Skill also allows a character to identify Alchemical items as quickly as they can read the Tag.
A character can use an ingested substance if not mixed into food or drink. In other words, anyone can drink an Intoxicate Elixir straight from the bottle, but they must have Herbal Lore to mix that Elixir into a drink or food.
