By Wolfsbane & Mandrake Root





Title: Pagan Portals - By Wolfsbane & Mandrake Root: The Shadow World of Plants and Their Poisons

Author: Melusine Draco

Genre: Religion & Spirituality






Rating: 5 out of 5 fairies






Where to buy: Amazon

Synopsis: A large number of poisonous plants have beneficial uses in both domestic medicine and magic. Needless to say, when utilising a toxic plant in magic, we are adding certain extra deadly or potent energies into the mix and it is inadvisable to start messing about with deadly poisons unless we've made a thorough study of the subject - and not just by glancing at a paragraph in a book on herbal preparations!

Review: A very powerful book on not just poisonous plants, but how they can affect our lives, especially when used in magic. Whether used with good intentions or bad, ingested or in magic spells, poisonous plants are powerful and not to be trifled with. This book is an amazing study on the subject with advice on safely and wisely using poisonous plants.
