Mandragora or more commonly known as Mandrake Root considered the most powerful root used in occult practices. Believed to attract love, fertility and prosperity. Mandrake is a Saturn plant, like most poisonous herbs. The elemental correspondence is Earth.
European Mandrake comes from several species of the genus Mandragora, a member of the nightshade family. Mandragora grows in the Mediterranean region, stretching eastward into parts of China. Mandrake was used in magical rituals, and also in early Chinese and European medicine as a pain reliever and sedative.
American Mandrake has a broad palmate leaf attached to a long stem. The shape of the plant gave rise to another nickname “Witch’s Umbrella.” I t was said, that witches harvested the plant to poison their enemies. Every part of the American Mandrake is poisonous: The leaves, the stems, the roots, the seeds, and the unripe fruit.
Besides protection and magical power, Mandrake is associated with fertility magic. In the book of Genesis (30:14-22), Rachel barters with her sister Leah for mandrakes so that she might conceive a child. Mandrakes are also mentioned in the long erotic poem Song of Songs (7:13).
“Mandrake” is the King James translation of a word more closely meaning “love-plant.” Some biblical scholars now believe that the “mandrake” of the Bible is ginseng or another plant thought to promote fertility.
