A shrub with red berries; the leaves & berries, if ingested, cause delirium & hallucinations. It used to be used to dilate women's eyes as they perceived that as beautiful. Before the middle ages, it was used as an anesthetic for surgery. It grows wild too.

A hardy shrub with red to blue~purple berries that are Poison; the leaves are too & if eaten, will cause delirium & hallucinations! In the Olden days, women used this to increase the size of the pupils of their eyes~this was seen as a sign of Beauty. Also, long long ago it was used as an anesthetic during surgery.
