Not sure if this is the right place for this question but I am trying to find other names for Jezebel Root?






This tread is about shops not the herbs themselves, but since this question is here I will answer ( as best I can) here.

I think that Jezabel root is the hoodoo name for a rhizome of a type of iris that grows in Luiziana.
It is supposedly very similar to orris root (from another type of iris) in species and in use.

Be careful if you order it online as most sources do not state what plant they took the rhizome from and it is often mixed up with other kinds of iris.

I just had to reply to this old post as I saw Hemlock mentioned. This plant was one of the first I learned about through Norwegian Trolldom, witches ointments - of course - and I recall being in awe over the properties. I was much too young but luckily careful and I still have some foliage of the very first Hemlock that I picked for over 30 years ago. Many might argue that its power is long gone but it depends what you want to use it for. For very special occasions I use a little bit of what's left and it stil doesn't fail to deliver. I get all giddy and child-like thinking about those memories, how exciting it was to learn all about these forbidden plants *sigh*
