In Elden Ring, Celestial Dews are consumable items used for absolution. This is a mechanic you can use whenever you accidentally attack NPCs. There are only a limited number of Celestial Dews in Elden Ring, so use the item wisely.

Using Celestial Dews in Elden Ring
Celestial Dews are used in absolution. This can be done at the basin in the Church of Vows in Liurnia.
You can perform absolution in Elden Ring whenever NPCs turn hostile after you attack them. Take note, though, that once an NPC is dead, using a Celestial Dew won’t resurrect them.
A Celestial Dew will simply “de-aggro” an NPC. This means they won’t attack you anymore when you return to them, making them seemingly forget your previous action that caused them to become hostile.
This action can be very helpful for those who have accidentally angered certain NPCs by constantly attacking them. Once an NPC becomes hostile, any unfinished side quests tied to them will become inaccessible. Absolution is the only way to reverse this.
If multiple NPCs have become hostile all at once, going to the Church of Vows and performing an absolution will de-aggro every single hostile NPC. This action will only consume one Celestial Dew.
Alternatively, a Celestial Dew can also be used as a regular consumable item. When consumed outside of its original use of absolution, a Celestial Dew will recover HP and remove negative status effects.
Celestial Dew at Raya Lucaria
From the Main Academy Gate Site of Grace, walk over to the path to the east and keep on going, past the wolves and the merchant, until you’re facing a massive gate. There’s a corpse on the ground leaning against the gate that holds a Celestial Dew.
When approaching the gate, look up and you’ll notice a Bloodhound Knight clinging to the gate. This knight will drop on you and attack you when you get close. Consider this enemy while getting the item.

Celestial Dews at Night’s Sacred Ground

Celestial Dew in Leyndell, Royal Capital
The last Celestial Dew in Elden Ring is found in Leyndell. It’s on the upper section of the Erdtree Sanctuary which you can get to by heading to the balcony east of the Site of Grace and using the massive branch as a platform.
From this section of the sanctuary’s upper level, take the northern exit and immediately head left. Jump over to the roof below and proceed to the open window to your left.
Once inside, go over to the other side of the level and enter the room where you’ll find a corpse slumped over the ledge beside a ladder. Loot the corpse to obtain the Celestial Dew.
