-Charm Lover Salubra
Dialogue Bottom

Salubra is a slug Merchant in Hollow Knight. She collects and sells Charms as well as Charm Notches.

Lore

Salubra's shop is located above the abandoned village at the bottom of the Forgotten Crossroads, near the Blue Lake. She is knowledgeable in the craft and use of Charms and eagerly shares them with others for Geo.[3] She seems to be under the delusion that the village outside her house is still lively and is unaware of the Kingdom's demise.[4] She is also very fond of the looks of the Knight.[5]

In-game events

Accessing Salubra's shop requires defeating the Gruz Mother boss, and then at least acquiring the Mothwing Cloak or Mantis Claw, or down-slashing on a Shade. Alternatively, she can be reached by crossing the Blue Lake in the Resting Grounds.

Salubra sells Charms and Notches but also shares tips on their use. After collecting all 40 Charms, she sells the Knight her Blessing for Geo800, which will regenerate SOUL while resting at a Bench. Upon buying her blessing, a cutscene plays where she leans in and kisses the Knight.

A special blessing from me to you. You've earned it!

Salubra's Blessing

Salubra's Blessing is an item that the Knight can acquire from Salubra for Geo800 after acquiring 40 Charms. When the Knight rests at a Bench, an apparition of Salubra will appear after two seconds, dancing over the Knight and regenerating SOUL at the same rate as a Hot Spring.

Buying her blessing will also give the Blessed achievement.

This does not occur when the Knight is resting after resuming a save file. To start restoring SOUL, simply get up from the Bench and rest again.

Dialogue

First Encounter Ooooooooooooohhhhhhh, you surprised me! Hello, hello! Come in, sweetling! Come in and make yourself at home.

I'm Salubra, and this is my cosy little Charm store. Did the townsfolk out there tell you to come and visit me? Mmm, yes! This is a lovely little village isn't it? Warm and intimate and full of life.

When wearing at least 1 Charm Mmm... What were we talking about? Oh yes, Charms! I can see you've started your own collection. Very nice! I'll show you some of my own, and you can take one home with you if you like!
When not wearing any Charms Mmm... What were we talking about? Oh yes, Charms! I'm surprised a stylish little gadfly like yourself isn't wearing any, actually.

Charms are gorgeous, mystical, one-of-a-kind accessories with a spark of power woven into their cores. Just wearing one is enough to change your life! You'll do things you never thought possible!
Take a look at some of the Charms I have for sale. You can take one home with you if you like!

Buying Salubra's Blessing My dear. A blessing for you. With your excessive patronage and those startling good looks, you've more than earned it.

Mmmmmm yess... I hope my blessing brings you everything you desire! Don't be a stranger sweetums.

Trying to shop after receiving Salubra's Blessing Goodness, goodness. You've gone and bought all my lovely charms! What a stunning, colourful collection you've amassed. Mmmmmm! You're even more the attractive bug, clad in all those wonderful, sparkling things.

I may have nothing more to give, but you must come back and visit from time to time. Such a dashing figure frequenting my store. I bet the whole village is jealous. Mmm hmm!

Dream Nailed ...Dear dear, I really must hold it together, must appear calm, but this creature... is just divine...

When wearing 1 Charm or more Do you wear a lot of Charms at once? It's a lot of fun isn't it, mixing and matching them to get the perfect combination?

I don't know whether you've noticed, but some Charms seem to like each other. Yes! Mmm!
When Charms like each other, they shine even brighter and sing even more sweetly!
Even more reason to try all sorts of fun and surprising combinations of Charms! Mmmmmmm! You'll show me whenever you have a new favourite, right?

When owning 6 Charms or more It's a bit of a sin to wear too many Charms at once, isn't it? Sometimes less is more! Mmmm!

Yes, you shouldn't try to cram on more Charms than you can handle. The effect could be positively overwhelming!

When owning 12 Charms or more My dapper gadfly, would you care to know how charms are made? I don't often tell my customers, what with the truth being a little morbid. But you're a sharp one so you may have guessed already.

Few ways a charm appears but mainly it's from final wish, a dying bug's potent desire crystallised into these gorgeous, powerful trinkets.
Now don't go getting too sad. There are exceptions of course, and really, it's quite beautiful, makes them all the more precious. Mmhhmm.
Just think of all the little bug souls that went into creating your collection! It's like a crowd of strangers in your pouch, or purse, or...err....wherever it is you keep them.

Exhausted dialogue It's rare enough that someone enters my store, but even rarer to meet one so striking!

Those impressive horns! That fierce weapon. The air of mystery! Ooooh. It's enough to make me swoon.

Location
