*You see an Elven female seated behind the counter. She seems to be deep in concentratiEL-DB.comon, but looks up as you approach* Hello, welcome to my shop. How may I help you today?
Who are you?I am Alhana. It is very nice to meet you. *She bows*
JobWell, if you couldn't tell from my greeting, I am the owner and proprietor of this flower shop. *She chuckles* I'm a merchant by trade, but a herbalist at heart. I enjoy the creative process of being a herbalist, though I'm not as good as my grandmother.
HerbalistI study and use the flora of the lands to create a variety of things. Most plants and flowers have special properties that can produce remarkable results, especially when combined in the right way. Fragrances, potions, even magical essences, they all need plants and flowers. The secret is how much of what type to mix in.
GrandmotherMy grandmother was a well known herbalist. All the citizens of Tirnwood Vale would come to her for their needs. She would always know what flower to add to a particular potion, or what was needed to calm a troublesome cough. Her knowledge in these matters was unquestioned. Word of her knowledge spread outside the Vale, and she would sometimes have visitors from Mynadar or Desert Pines seeking her advice.
*She pauses and gazes at the flowers about the room.* If I had her knowledge, I could be an excellent herbalist too. Alas, she passed away some years ago without passing on her experience and knowledge to me. But there is still hope. She always kept her secrets written away in her diary, but I've had absolutely no luck in finding it anywhere. I have searched her house, and this entire shop, with no results.
I've been asking some of her old friends, like Siru or Rongon if they have any inkling as to where I can find my grandmother's diary, but it's all been in vain so far. *She frowns*
FragrancesCombining different flowers and plants can produce pleasant and even exotic fragrances. These can be used to freshen up a room or worn as a lovely perfume. I am afraid that my knowledge in EL-DB.comthat area is very limited. Perfume and fragrance creation is a delicate art. There is an Elven woman in Portland that could give you more information on that subject. Her name is Xaquelina.
My grandmother spoke very highly of this woman and said despite her flirtatious appearance, Xaquelina was one of the most talented herbalists she knew.
