Limited edition of 10.

 

Mandragora officinarum contains very high amounts of the alkaloid scopolomine, which causes an accelerated heart rate, blurred vision and intense hallucinations in the intoxicated. Old folktales state that mandrake could only be safely harvested by tying the top of the root to a black dog and waiting for the dog to pull the plant itself, as the screams of the unearthed mandrake were lethal to human ears.
