Atropa belladonna is the botanical name of deadly nightshade, a common weed in many parts of the world with an uncommon amount of lore and legend surrounding it. The name comes from Atropos, one of the three fates of Greek myth, and belladonna (beautiful woman in Italian) refers to the plant’s use as a cosmetic drug. Atropa belladonna contains a toxic compound called atropine, which to this day is used by optometrists to dilate the pupils of the eye. During the Renaissance, women in Venice are said to have used an extract of Atropa to dilate their pupils and give themselves a doe-eyed-come-hither look. Atropa belladonna is also said to have been an ingredient in witches’ flying ointment, as it’s toxicity induces hallucinations and supposedly a sensation of flying.
