This is probably not an example — the trope is healing physical injuries by something delivered by something that appears to be a weapon. Making a target fall in love is not that.

  • Eros/Cupid's arrows in ancient Greek/Roman Mythology, making this Older Than Dirt.
    • They didn't exactly heal, but they did inflict a magical effect — making the target fall in love with someone nearby. Note that Eros wasn't immune to his own weapons — the details change, depending on the source, but at one point he stabbed himself with an arrow and fell in love with Psyche, a mortal woman.
