Mandrake Ointment

Regular price $20.00 Sale

Does not ship to Germany, Australia, or New Zealand

A salve of the well known mandrake root (Mandragora officinarum). It can take this plant 2-5 years to grow roots ready to harvest and it should not be confused with American Mayapple (Podophyllum peltatum) -- a completely different plant.

Analgesic, anesthetic, anticholinergic, aphrodisiac and sedative. Use externally, apply to sore joints, muscles, insect bites/stings, burns, temples, or the back of the neck depending on where it is needed.

Mandrake has a history of thousands of years of medicinal and ceremonial use in Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and North Africa. Like Henbane, Mandrake is also considered a traditional aphrodisiac and this ointment makes the perfect massage balm. Only our mandrake ointment is safe to come into contact with mucous membranes.

Ingredients
Mandrake root (Mandragora officinarum) and wild harvested balsam poplar buds (Populus balsamifera)
