Health is essential to your gameplay experience in Sons of the Forest and should be prioritized, especially when facing mutants, cannibals, and other dangerous threats. When your health is relatively low, this makes you more prone to take more significant damage but recovering is easy to do by eating Health Mix.

How you can make the Health Mix can be straightforward to do as long as you have enough Aloe Vera and Yarrow. You can follow this guide below on how to craft the Health Mix and never have low health in Sons of the Forest.

How To Make The Health Mix In Sons Of The Forest?

After exploring the island and farming Aloe Vera and Yarrow plants, these can be accessed by opening up your inventory. They’ll be a gray craft map where you can do basic crafting like weapons and consumable items, including meds or Health Mix.

This is the only health consumable item you can make in-game, but it’s not the only method for recovering health. With the inventory open and the crafting mat available, click on the gear at the top right of the mat and select the Health Mix.

Locate and select the Aloe Vera and Yarrow plants with the inventory open and place them on the crafting mat. Click on the gear icon and right-click on your mouse to combine all the ingredients, and you can watch your character do just that.

After some time, the Health Mix will be made and readily available within your inventory, for which you can continue making more. This depends on whether you have enough Aloe Vera and Yarrow to craft more Health Mix.

Likewise, you can equip the Health Mix to your backpack for easy access to a health item and efficient enough to recover health. As alluded to, it’s not the only option to regain health as you can consume cooked food, drink plenty of water, and rest at your shelter or tent, but we advise doing this after you’ve eaten.

Lastly, you can utilize the various meds you can find around the island, at abandoned camps, cannibal villages, and inside containers. These can also be equipped with your backpack, making it easier to consume and get your health back faster.
