Dogbane Dogbane
Apocynum species

A bold plant that enjoys standing tall in the field and that primarily affects the heart, dogbane is of Jupiter. In West European magick the flowers have been made into love charms, and the whole plant has been ritually used on Autumn Eve to help make spirits visible. This magick herb is said to enhance creativity. Top

Toxicity

Dogbane is the name of a plant family that includes Periwinkle and oleander, and many dogbanes contain enough cardiac glycosides that they can be fatal if eaten. However, in China and Japan, this type of dogbane (which is not the same species as the dogbane that grows in North America) is brewed with green tea and jasmine flowers and drunk in small amounts for lowering blood pressure, as a diuretic, an antidepressant, and a sedative. That doesn't mean you can treat it at all casually: the fibers of this plant are made into medicinal sheets that very gradually give these heart stimulants to the people who sleep on them--which shows just how powerful this herb is.
