Witches’ Flying Ointments

 

Witches’ Flying Ointments

 

Modern astral travel is basically a mental and magickal exercise; herbs and crystals are used to enhance the process, but they do not produce the experience. Herbs may also be used to produce similar, although not identical, experiences. Keeping control over the experience is among the key goals of unassisted astral travel: however, once herb substances become the source of the journey, that control is, to varying extents, ceded.

 

Herbs assisted soul journeys, just like astral projection are surviving vestiges of shamanism. Ointments to produce visions–including group visions–exist in many traditions. Many are accompanied by the sensation of flying. These ointment are the medium of shamanic journeys. The most famous maybe medieval witches’ flying ointments.
