Default Iím thinking maybe cedar wood.

Iím not sure thatís rawhide. I think itís likely cambium from a tree native to the area. Even just the odor from that might work. However, if they soaked it in other sap from trees and other plants it would make it more potent.

Lemon eucalyptus
Lemongrass
Peppermint
Sage
Thyme
Geranium
Lavender
Catnip
Citronella
Cedar wood
Basil
Mugwort

Iím not sure, but itíd be worth it to try sap from trees in the spruce and pine family as well. Iíve heard vanilla might work, but I doubt youíll find that in the wild and definitely not on most of that journey.
