This week on master herbalist Mary Colvin's Herbal Collections blog, she delves into the history of Elecampane, an Old World herb once used as part of  nine ingredients in the formula to protect against witchcraft.

"Being an Old World medicinal herb, there are many traditions, legends, folklore uses, and rituals that surround Elecampane. This plant was very sacred to the Celtic Druids, and according to legend, it was named Elfwort and Elfdock specifically for its association with the Elves and the fairy kingdom."
