Spirits of the Arcane

An exploration of Magic, the occult, hoodoo, and general Witchery

The Mandrake is one of the plants most commonly associated with witchcraft. It was one of the common ingredients in the Witches’ Flying Ointment, and it was said that upon harvesting the root it would emit a deadly shriek. To counter this, would be gatherers of the mandrake would tie a dog’s leash to the plant in order to pull it from the ground. Mandrake roots often grew in shapes which resembled the human form, and the preserved roots were often kept upon the hearth as protective guardians of the home. Mandrake is said to be a powerful root for drawing love, money, protection, and magical power. Often confused with American Mandrake (Podophyllum peltatum), more commonly called May Apple, True Mandrake (Mandragora sp.) is of European origin and is an entirely different plant from the May Apple. Many unscrupulous or uneducated dealers will sell American Mandrake as True Mandrake. Our Mandrake is guaranteed to be genuine, organically grown and ethically harvested. Available Here
