Making Flying Ointments

Ointments are easily made, they consist simply of herbs or oils and a base.

THE SHORTENING METHOD
Gently heat four parts shortening over low heat until liquefied. Watch that it doesn’t burn. Add one part dried herbal mixture, blend with a wooden spoon until thoroughly mixed, and continue heating until the shortening has extracted the scent, you’ll smell it in the air.

Strain through cheesecloth into a heat proof container, such as a canning jar. Add one half tsp tincture of benzoin to each pint of the ointment as a natural preservative. Store in a cool, dark place like a refrigerator. Let the mixture sit for two weeks prior to using.

USEING OINTMENTS
Ointments are usually rubbed onto the body to effect various magical changes. When anointing the body with the ointment rub a small amount to your wrist, arches, solar plexus , under arms.

CAUTION
Do not use flying ointments if you have a heart problem or serious kidney and liver problems. Do not use ointments containing belladonna if you are allergic to morphine and related opiates or you will have a very serious reaction and need to go to the emergency room. Do not mix with serious medications. Do not use when pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth after using the ointment. Keep away from children and pets. Do not drive or operate machinery while under the effects of a flying ointment. Side effects may include temporary dizziness, fatigue, and blurred vision (the latter especially if the ointment contains belladonna). Give yourself 2-5 hours to recover from the experience and get back to normal. In some cases, it may take 1-2 days to get your normal energy levels back.

I’m so proud of my latest creation! I’m happy how I got the selenite to look. I used recycled leather and fox fur for the handle and a quartz crystal point for the end. I thought that the cleansing powers of the selenite would work great as an athame.

Some say that the world tree on which Odin was tied to before finding the runes was an oak and so I believe making a rune set to look like acorns is very appropriate. Also acorns are believed to be sacred to Odin and were often left on window sills, and eventually attached to curtain pulls, to protect from storms.

I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.
