How to Heal Yourself in Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village 5 (1)

With so many enemies out to get you, it goes without saying that you’re going to get hurt in Resident Evil Village. So how do you heal yourself?

Like in all mainline Resident Evil games, crafting is an important part of your survival in Resident Evil Village. And you’ll need to do quite a bit of crafting in order to heal yourself.

To heal yourself in Resident Evil Village, you’ll need a First Aid Med. The easiest way to get one of these is by crafting. You’ll need one herb and one chem fluid in order to make one – and thankfully, you’ll find those items early on in the game.


To craft, open up your inventory by pressing Y (or triangle on PlayStation). Navigate to the crafting menu by using the left and right shoulder buttons. From there, find the First Aid Med, and press A (or X on PlayStation) to craft.

To use a First Aid Med, head to your inventory with Y/triangle. Navigate to the item, and click to use it.

You’ll also be able to buy First Aid Meds from Duke’s Emporium, the merchant that you encounter in the castle. It’s always wise to have a stock in your inventory, so craft them when you can and buy one if you have enough money.
