Magical Uses: Devil's Shoestring is a common, and potent, root utilized most frequently in hoodoo practices. It is used for protection, hex breaking, compelling, helping find a new job, and gaining the upper hand with the opposite sex. Most frequently, it is kept within a Mojo bag or tied together to form a bracelet, anklet, or necklace. It is typically viewed as a powerful protective device. This is where some believe it even gets its name, referring to its ability to "trip up the devil," as if you tied his shoelaces together. Tied together as an anklet, Devil's Shoestring is also known to be of particular help in preventing the wearer from being poisoned by Goofer's Dust. Other uses within such spiritual practices also involve the herb aiding with finding good luck, helping to find a new job or a raise, achieving invisibility, or acquiring some measure of control over the opposite sex.
