Mandrake has a very long history of use as a sacred herb. The root of Mandrake (Mandragora officinarum) is thought to take on almost a human form. It has been used in association with magic in European folklore.
Mandragora occicinarum (Mandrake) was a common admixture in witches' brews. Mandrake contains extremely large amounts of tropane alkaloids and should be regarded as poisonous. It was often carried for protection and luck.
Our current Mandrake root is small, cut and sifted pieces. Sorry we are unable to find the larger pieces.
