A word of caution though, the Mandragora is poisonous and it contains tropane alkaloids such as hyoscyamine and atropine.

In addition, a small mixture of the extract with the powder can be used to dress candles for ritual work. The extract and powder can be added on amulets and spells for extra power. Let your imagination guide you!
- The leaves and powder can be added in all Evil Eye amulets for extra potency. Witches believed that the foul smell coming from the leaves is capable of averting the Evil Eye. For more information on the Evil Eye please read the relevant link.
- Few pieces can be added in your purse, pocket or wherever you keep your paper money bills and you can add the dust in your wallet to attract money your way.
- Take a piece of mandrake root and sprinkle it with holy water and salt. Put it in a cloth bag and carry it with you as a protection charm. Also add a personal amulet of protection such as a pentacle, a triquetra or cross for extra potency.
- To assist with a seance or connection with spirits use a small pinch of powdered mandrake with two mastic resins and a pinch of dittany of Crete. This mixture will assist with spirit manifestation.
