Hiveblood in Hollow Knight is one out of the 45 Charms that is found in the game. These charms are special items that provide The Knight buffs that will help with both traversing Hallownest and battling its foes. Charms require Notches and can only be equipped and unequipped while having The Knight sit on a bench.

Hiveblood is a charm that has health regenerative properties, this allows the Knight to recover its health without the use of SOUL. However, Hiveblood only restores 1 health mask and requires the knight to not take any damage for 12 seconds.
If The Knight takes damage while regenerating its health, players will need to repeat the process and wait for at least 12 seconds without taking any damage for the charm to work - also, Hiveblood can be interrupted once a player uses SOUL to heal.
Another point to take note of is that Hiveblood can also restore Lifeblood Masks gained from Joni's Blessing but takes about 24 seconds for the charm to start regenerating.
