Today I bring you a botanical illustration inspired art about mandrakes. I really like special plants which connected with interesting superstitions and beliefs. According to the legend, when the mandrake root is dug up it screams and kills all who hear it.

mugwort - known for its slumber and dream assist properties. It dispels nightmares, calms sleeplessness tendencies, and is sometimes used to enhance shamanic astral travel during sleep. A mugwort bundle (leaves and flower tied together) is placed under a bed pillow before retiring for the night.
