My voodoo mentor Earl Marlowe used to say that you could control any woman with Devil's Shoe String. "No woman can resist the Devil's Shoe String," he would say. "Cut the root up into small pieces. Then put camphor or whiskey on it and rub it between the palms of your hands. You will then have the power to dominate any woman you come across."
He also said the mixture is good for subduing an enemy. "You dress the inside and backs of your hands with it. Then if you grab your enemy by the arm, and he comes for you, he will be blinded."
