Mandragora- The Mandrake Root

"Find a root of the plant called bryony. Take it out of the ground on a Monday (the day of the moon), a little time after the verinal equinox. Cut off the ends of the root and bury it at night in some country churchyard in a dead man's grave. For 30 days, water it with cow's milk in which three bats have been drowned. When the 31st day arrives, take out the root in the middle of the night and dry it in an oven heated with branches of verbena; then wrap it up in a piece of a dead man's winding-sheet and carry it with you everywhere"
