Witches Flying Oil
WHAT ARE FLYING OILS/OINTMENTS?
Flying ointments have been used for centuries, crafted from fat, wax or oil and infused with magical, psychoactive herbs and plants, the substance when applied to the skin would induce a trance like state in the witch, creating a meditative spirit journey.
The flying ointments of old contained delirium inducing and sometimes deadly plants, roots and flowers; including Monkshood, Mandrake, Henbane, Belladonna and Datura. These ointments where recorded during the witch trials to be boiled with the fat of unbabtised children, failing this plain old animal fat would be used. The heat would have drawn out the toxins into the ointment.
This flying oil has been crafted using oil and solar energies, creating a safer and more delicate tool for your use in rituals, hedgecrossing, meditation and trance work. Absorb the energies of the plants spirits, let them guide you on a journey of wisdom and knowledge, let them empower your work and your craft.
There are many flying ointments and similar products on the market, some of them can be vague about the ingredients and amounts. For you to be fully aware of what you’re purchasing and to help you make the right choice, I will tell you the exact process of how this oil is made.
HOW IS IT MADE?
-Rosewood essential oil
-Sweet Almond oil
-Henbane seed pods
-Fly Agaric cap
First I take dried wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), harvested from my own garden. Wormwood contains Thujone, a stimulant that causes mild psychoactive effects. The spirit of the wormwood is called upon, it is told its purpose and its power, and asked to guide those who use the oil on a magically fulfilling and safe journey. I then fill a large 1 litre glass jar half way with the wormwood. I speak to each substance as it is added to the jar.
Added next is one small cap of wild harvested fly agaric (Amanita muscaria), a few leaves of yarrow, one root of mandrake (Mandragora officianarum) grown in my garden, two berries of deadly nightshade (Atropa belladonna) and two seeds pods of Henbane (Hyoscyamus niger) grown in my garden, only small amounts are used to add the spirit of the plants while avoiding too much of the toxic alkaloids contained in them.
The jar is then filled to the top with sweet almond oil, and left to charge for a month under the stars, moon and sun. Decanted into 10ml amber glass roll on bottles, the oil is ready to be used in your own work. The fact that it is an oil macerated in solar energies makes for a more delicate concoction as opposed to historical ointments that were heated over a fire with fat and contained more dangerous plants such as monkshood.
HOW DO I USE IT?
Use this oil to aid you in astral travel, spirit journeying, trance work, meditation, visualisation, hedgecrossing and any rituals where you require a boost of power or the aid of the spirits of the poison path.
First of all, test a little of the oil on your skin to check for any adverse affects and to gauge your reaction. Assuming all is well, you may then increase the dosage by rolling the oil onto your wrists, neck, base of feet, back of knees, third eye etc. You may also use this oil to anoint candles, charm bags, altar tools or even add to incense.
Due to the nature of some of the ingredients, it is best to avoid touching your mouth, eyes, nose or genitals with this oil. Ordinary skin will absorb this oil just fine, do not risk irritation by applying to more sensitive areas or mucous membranes. Keep away from children and animals.
You will receive one 10ml amber glass roll on bottle filled with flying oil, 5 drops rosewood essential oil and leaves of wormwood, as well as an information scroll.

Ye Olde Witchcraft Shoppe is not liable for any individual reaction to any particular ingredient. Remember to read the ingredients listed carefully. If you have a specific allergy or sensitivity, do not use ingredients that may trigger a reaction. An allergy patch test is recommended if there is any doubt or history of skin reactions. Discontinue use if a reaction occurs.
The oils that I craft do not have Cosmetic Product Safety Reports, so they are sold for use in oil burners, adding to incense blends and for anointing tools and magical items only. My oils are all made with the highest quality cosmetic grade ingredients, so although I can assure you that use on the skin would cause no harm (unless you have underlying allergies or conditions beforehand) I can not legally sell them as perfumes. By purchasing my oils you are agreeing to the responsibility of risk if using on the skin. It is my goal to get my oils assessed for safe cosmetic use ASAP.
