In Europe, Calamus Root is called German Ginger & has been long used to flavor wines and herbal bitters. At one point it was used as a strewing herb to hide foul orders deriving from poor sanitation during the Middle Ages. North American natives often chewed on the root as a stimulant much like coffee or cocoa. It was later adapted in the use of 'flying ointments,' as the root contains a group of compounds called asarones, which produce a mild narcotic effect, this enhanced & promoted hallucinogenic changes to the consciousness, thus tying it to become known as a 'Witch's Herb' & ties to 'Black Magic.' Use of the root or essential oil as flavoring or food has been banned in the United States since 1968. So how should you use this root?  By adding it to magickal mojo bags, Witch Balls, Potpurri Blends, Witch Bottles & other herbal mixtures (not meant for consumption) that help to achieve a desired goal in spell casting. Since it is a root, it holds strong ties to the element of Earth, bringing great grounding to one's energy for clear thought & reconnection. This stability in energy, allows one to achieve dominance in their own life, taking control over matters that seem out of grasp. It helps to build confidence, which can enhance persuasions, healing, strength & balance; Because it works so well to ignite the energy between the root & solar plexus chakras, it encourages an energy that multiplies manifestation power & prosperity. Magic is neither black nor white, so it is up to the user to determine how they will use this new found power & distribute the energy conjured.
