Much like Slumber Sage, this ingredient soothes the ailments of townspeople but is somewhat rare to find in the wild. But there are a few areas you can find Herbs of Serenity in Octopath Traveler 2, such as:

  • Harborlands Western Canalbrine Coast: After leaving Canalbrine, take the path left until you reach a fork. Go north until you reach a cave, exiting at a port where you can use your boat to get to a small island to the north with a chest containing the Herb of Serenity.
  • Brightlands, Near Abandoned Village: Just at the slope leading to the Abandoned Village, there’s a ladder leading to a chest with the Herb of Serenity.
  • Crestlands, Flamechurch: Steal, Mug, Purchase, or Entreat if possible from Apothecary to gain an Herb of Serenity.
