Bloodmoss ointment was a substance that John Parry learned to make from shaman Turukhanik which preserved the virtues of the fresh plant.[1] It involved getting six handfuls of bloodmoss, and boiling it with a thumb-sized piece of harp-flower root before cooling and drying it and putting it under enough grain to cover it up. Meanwhile, goose-grease should be prepared by alternatively boiling and chilling it before both were mixed together and sealed and stored in beeswax.[2]
