A Blackweed Balm is an item in Dark Souls II: Crown of the Sunken King.

In-Game Description

A balm extracted from a rare plant. Temporarily increases intelligence.
This special fragrant oil affects the mind, granting a fleeting sense of empowerment.


Dropped by the Corrosive Egg Insects found in Shulva and Dragon's Sanctum.


Increases Intelligence by 5 points for a 45-second period, which can be extended by equipping the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring.


  • As with all balms, trying to use the Blackweed Balm will cancel the effects of the Vine, Goldenfruit or Old Growth Balm, therefore making it impossible to use any of them in conjunction with one another.
