Our flying ointment, useful for faring forth in dreams, rites of mediumship, and flights to the Sabbat. We cauldron-brew small batches based on old recipes for the lifting salve during auspicious times in the witching season and excite the ointment with cunning fire. This batch contains with balsam, true cinnamon, tobacco, clary sage, galbanum, juniper, mugwort, and the baneful herbs Datura stramonium, Hyoscyamus niger, and Atropa belladonna, differing from previous batches by the addition of belladonna and a stronger mugwort presence. The ointment is then thickened with beeswax and butter and blackened with lampblack to bring about union with the night and its spirits.
This ointment is best used by witches with practice in the art; the proper dosage will not cause hallucinations or blast you into the otherworld. Please be respectful of the plants and use common sense. Do not use if you have health problems. Use in a properly warded space and have a relationship with the local spirits.
Start with a dime-sized amount and do not apply to your mucus membranes. See how it affects you and work to find the right dosage for your work. Effects should begin in approximately 30 minutes to an hour and last a few hours. Physical effects are a sense of excitation and skin flush, euphoria and possibly dizziness, followed by heightened senses and dilated pupils. Drink plenty of water the next day, and avoid eating food high in fats.
