History and Lore About High John Root Whole:
Known under the latin name of ipomoea jalapa, the root is more commonly named after John the Conqueror (or John the Conqueroo as he is sometimes called), who is spoken of often in African American folklore and is frequently considered to be quite energetically potent. Most frequently, High John Root is used as part of a Mojo bag. There it is said to provide good luck and the strength to help overcome obstacles; as well as provide potent protection from the negative energies and curses of others. It is said to be quite potent in drawing the attentions of the one you desire. It has been written of and referenced for these purposes by numerous famous Blues singers, including Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, and Bo Diddley, making it quite the iconic among that community and culture. Modern herbalists and Hoodoo practitioners typically use it externally; in most cases avoiding its internal use as when it is taken orally it produces strong laxative properties, that are best avoided unless the situation warrants it.
