Could it be made more effective if we watered it with the Salve? Or made arrow shafts from it and tipped with sil*thril and garlic or Serum of Guthix? Another thing occurred to me; since Icyene and vampyres are natural rivals of sorts, the flora of these species might have a rivalry as well; namely, the blisterwood (Icyene) and bloodwood (Vyre) trees.

Blisterwood, like silver, garlic and Icyene, is dangerous to vampyres. This suggests that the blisterwood tree might indeed have originated from New Domina which itself might be an antithesis to Vampyrium. Bloodwood trees thrive on bloodshed which suggests that they might have been indigenous to Vampyrium (this was suggested in a lore story called The Old Blood). A bloodwood tree can be found in Darkmeyer near the Arboretum which contains the blisterwood tree, oddly enough. I would like to research into both of these trees more later.

It's said that the Salve was blessed by the Seven Priestly Warriors in the Fourth Age, and that Hallowvale was a largely Saradominist area which may have been a dangerous place for vampyres and demons once. Even the Zarosians struggled there, as they only managed to build Kharyrll which had become a pub for werewolves later, and Viggora's Fortress. The reason I say it may have been dangerous is because I have another theory about the blisterwood trees:

Saradomin had introduced them into Hallowvale and they had become abundant there, as well as growing continually which would explain the belt and the machine supporting it being messed around with. They also look like a heart complete with pulsating veins, whereas the Bloodwood trees spurt out blood when they're cut. Since the tree came out of a crack under the Arboretum, it may have started growing with the Daeyalt ore. If Daeyalt really did come as a result of the Stone of Jas being there in the past, and it was considered a type of bane metal, it can be assumed that the tree may have absorbed nutrients from the ore, turning it into a type of bane plant attuned to vyres.
