Alchemy description: Restore <mag> points of Health.
Enchanting description: Heals the target <mag> points per second, but not undead, atronachs or machines.
Restore Health repairs the target's damaged Health. Restore Health will not increase Health past its base value.


The following alchemy ingredients can be used to create a potion of Restore Health:


The following items use this effect but cannot be disenchanted:


The following spells use the Restore Health group of effects. Following each spell is the specific variant of the effect that it uses:

  • Close Wounds: Restore Health (000b62f0; RestoreHealthFFSelf50)
  • Fast Healing: Restore Health (0001cea6; RestoreHealthFFSelf)
  • Grand Healing:
    • Restore Health Area (000b62ed; RestoreHealthFFSelfArea)
    • Restore Health Blank (000dd642; RestoreHealthFFSelfBlank)
  • Heal Other: Restore Health (0001cea7; RestoreHealthFFActor)
  • Healing: Restore Health (0001cea4; RestoreHealthConcSelf)
  • Healing Hands: Restore Health (0001cea5; RestoreHealthConcActor)


  • All players can cast the Healing spell from the start of the game.
  • Most foods will restore health; some by only a point or two, but carrying a good supply of high-health foods can be a useful element in your health restoration repertoire. Some player-cooked foods and special foods, or foods used along with certain perks, can not only restore health, but also regenerate health or magicka over sustained periods.
  • Fortify Restoration potions increase the amount healed by healing spells, but do not increase the amount restored by healing potions. If you exploit a glitch with the effect, you can craft Restore Health potions that heal more than the standard Extreme Healing potions, though less than the Ultimate Healing potions.


  • Spells that restore health to others (Healing Hands, Heal Other, and Grand Healing) also heal enemies like bandits and Thalmor assassins found in random encounters. You can use this quirk to heal enemies as you damage them so they stay alive for longer so you can increase your weapon/magic skills. ?
