I found this info on the Leicester Pagan Alliance website:
'Herbal knowledge is a powerful tool. It was necessary for witches centuries ago who possessed such knowing, to disguise the names of their ingredients so, should their sacred journal fall into the wrong hands, without the corresponding Herbal Code to decipher the true meaning of the herbal ingredients, spells, potions and medicines would be useless'
So, with this in mind, witches used 'Lions Tooth' instead of Dandelion.... how cunning.
