Obuno was a Rokugani oil distilled from the leaves of a spiny plant, and had medicinal properties. If mixed with ginseng, it could work to stave off infection. But it was not used often because of the potential side effects. If the mix was not make well, the obuno was too potent, and it could make a man sick or even dead. [1]

Fabric dye Edit

It was first used a fabric dye. Obuno mixed with the essence from kello leaves and tebo, made a deep ebony dye called kebo. Everyone whose clothes were dyed with it began to have a bad reaction. People were swooning and having shortness of breath. It was finally realized when a samurai engaged in a duel suddenly fell to the ground, his back was grayish black where his sweat had made the dye run. [2]
