Spice

From PathfinderWiki

Spices are trade goods used to preserve and flavor food and drinks, and in some applications can serve as a form of natural medicine. Most are naturally grown or bred, though some benefit from alchemy and druidic magic to enhance their properties.[1] Qadiran alchemists also import and cross-breed spices with specimens collected from other planes to further increase their medicinal potency.[2]
