Keoghtom's ointment was an unguent used to clear poisons and disease, and heal wounds.[1] Many adventurers of Faerûn carried such an ointment.[citation needed]


The salve was a magic item that was named after Keoghtom.[note 1] The unguent jar was small, about 3 inches (7.6 centimeters) in diameter and 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) deep. One to three jars were commonly found together.[4] It was a thick mixture that smelt faintly of aloe.[1]


When placed upon a poisoned wound, or swallowed, it detoxified poisons and diseases. If rubbed on the body, it healed moderate wounds.[4][1] For those who could not be cured by restorative spells, either rest or a magical item such as this ointment had to be used.[5]
