Scammony (Convolvulus scammonia) is a bindweed native to the countries of the eastern part of the Mediterranean basin; it grows in bushy waste places, from Syria in the south to the Crimea in the north, its range extending westward to the Greek islands, but not to northern Africa or Italy.
It is a twining perennial, bearing flowers like those of Convolvulus arvensis, and having irregularly arrow-shaped leaves and a thick fleshy root.
SCAMMONY was a traditional purgative (a very Saturn thing for a plant to do) and provides an incense that has been used in magick to represent Saturn and in spells for revenge. According to Eliphas Levi, it should be combined with aloe ferox, sulfur, and asafoetida for rituals done on a Saturday.
CAUTION: Although this root is from and organic source, it should not be taken internally
