Culpeper’s Complete Herbal, published in 1653, is a source Rowling used as a reference for herbs and other plants. She told “60 Minutes”:

“I used to collect names of plants that sounded witchy, and then I found this, ‘Culpeper’s Complete Herbal,’ and it was the answer to my every prayer: flax weed, toadflax, fleawort, Gout-wort, grommel, knotgrass, Mugwort.”
