Medicinal Use: -Highly Toxic-
People take European Mandrake root for treating stomach ulcers, colic, constipation, asthma, hay fever, convulsions, arthritis-like pain (rheumatism), and whooping cough. It is also used to trigger vomiting, cause sleepiness (sedation), reduce pain, and increase interest in sexual activity. European mandrake fresh leaves and leaf extracts are applied directly to the skin for treating skin ulcers.
Magickal Use: Mandrake root is a very common and potent herb used as an ingredient for various spells, oils, potions, and ceremonial offerings. Mandrake root is said to come in male and female "shapes" where male Mandrake roots resemble the shape of a human male and the female root resembling the body of a human female.
In particular, the Mandrake root is the most powerful herb of love magick, and certainly one of the most deadliest. Ones that resemble a phallus are believed to possess great aphrodisiac qualities and were, at one time, the main ingredient used in Witches' love philtres (potions) despite their highly toxic properties.
