Powers: Protection, Fertility, Money, Love, Health
Magical Uses: placed on the mantel in the home, will give the house protection, fertility and prosperity. It is also hung on the headboard for protection during sleep, carried to attract love and worn to prevent contraction of illnesses. Where there is mandrake, demons cannot reside so the root is used in exorcism.
To "activate" a dried mandrake root, place in a prominent location in the house and leave it there for three days. Then place it in warm water overnight. Afterwards the root is activated and can be used in magical workings. The water may be sprinkled at the doors and windows of a house to protect it or on a person to purify them.
