Mandrake, American

Podophyllum peltatum

Properties and Uses:
Only the dried root of the American Mandrake is safe enough to use internally. Even then, it is a strong cathartic and laxative, to be used with extreme caution, only under professional guidance. Do not use in pregnancy. The European variety contains several alkaloids, including the strongly hallucinogenic, narcotic, anodynes atropine, scopolamine and hyoscyamine. The leaves were once applied externally to ulcers, while the root formerly had wide application in the relief of pain, in the treatment of nervous disorders and as an aphrodisiac. Much of the information surrounding Mandrake is superstition.

Herbie's Herbs' Tinctures

Herbie’s Herbs tinctures are alcohol-based preparations macerated in 50% distilled cane sugar alcohol at a 1:2 ratio. Read more here

Compared to other methods, alcohol helps extract nearly all active constituents from a herb yielding stronger tinctures that require a lower dose to attain beneficial effects.

Alcohol eliminates the growth of bacteria and mold while preserving the valuable constituents resulting in a much longer shelf life.
