As you enter the Wyldwood, you notice movement in the dappled undergrowth, and a light wind rushes through the leaves. The sun should be setting soon, but here night and day seem not to matter; the flowers seem to have a glow unto their own and leaves shade dark like the night sky.

Skill level required: Apprentice Journeyman Expert Master
You will notice four different skill levels on each recipe. The complexity of the recipe will dictate how difficult it is. As a rough guide:
For our new, beginning alchemists. These recipes are super easy, use few ingredients and don’t take much time at all.
For those who have learnt a little bit more, these are just kicking it up a notch from the beginner level. Expect to be making 1 or 2 tinctures per recipe.
Experts are skillful in the basics, and are ready to learn recipes of an intermediate level. Combining several tinctures in other bases like infusions and decoctions.
Master level recipes are the hardest of them all, making things like concentrated extracts, topical creams and edible lozenges from scratch.
