Afterwards, the root is activated and can be used in any magical practice. The water in which the root has bathed can be sprinkled at the windows and doors of the house to protect it, or onto people to purify them. The mandrake has also long served as a poppet in image magic, but its extreme scarcity and high cost usually forces the practitioner to look for substitutes; ash roots, apples, the root of the briony, the AMerican may apple and many others have been used.

Especially effective in discovering a thief who has robbed you. Marigolds added to the bath water help win the respect and admiration of everyone you meet. Looking at the bright flowers strengthens the sight, and carried in the pocket, marigold helps justice to smile favorably upon you while in court. If a girl touches the petals of the marigold with her bare feet, she will understand the languages of the birds.
