|Examine||X doses of Relicym's balm, which helps cure disease.|
Relicym's balm is made by mixing a Rogue's purse potion (unf) and a clean snake weed. It requires level 8 Herblore and completion of the Zogre Flesh Eaters quest to the point where Sithik Ints tells the player how to cure the zogre disease.
Besides being available on the Grand Exchange, players may also purchase 3 dose potions from Uglug Nar for 200 coins once they've learned how to make the potion. To open Uglug Nar's store, simply give him a 3 or 4 dose Relicym's balm potion, for which he will pay 650 or 1000 gold respectively. Note that Uglug will buy these potions from players for 120 gold as well if he has none in stock, but it must be a 3 dose potion for him to make an offer.

Before the Evolution of Combat update, the main use of Relicym's balm was to cure disease. Depending on how long the player had been infected with disease, it took up to 3 doses to be fully cured; the more recent the infection, the more doses required. However, disease was removed from the game in that update.
With Barbarian Training, adding roe to a 2 dose potion used to turn it into a Relicym's mix which heals 30 life points in addition to the above effects. With disease removed, there was no longer a need for players to drink the potion in any form.
As Relicym's balm currently serves little purpose in game, it has become a popular item for scammers to use. The scammer puts x number of balms in the Grand Exchange for very high prices, then convinces another player to buy them for that price.
