Making Flying Ointments

Ointments are easily made, they consist simply of herbs or oils and a base. This is not a beginner project, if you plan on astral traveling please do lots of research on the subject. Flying ointments are only aids and can be dangerous if done incorrectly. Before using any herbs research any adverse affects of the plants you plan to use. Ointments are for external use only, do not consume. The toxic recipes are shown (without dosage) for examples of old recipes that are no longer used as they can have health risks.

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.

"A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown."
— William Butler Yeates, “The Mermaid” (via feellng)

O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore Thee, I love Thee, and with lively sorrow for my sins I offer Thee this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure and wholly obedient to Thy will. Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in Thee and for Thee. Protect me in the midst of danger. Comfort me in mine afflictions. Give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, Thy blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Amen.

MYTHOLOGY MEME - [8/?] MUSES AND/OR NYMPHS: EURYDICE

"The result of that sad wedding, proved more terrible

than such foreboding fates. While through the grass

delighted Naiads wandered with the bride, a serpent

struck its venomed tooth in her soft ankle—and she died.”

"I pull you now with Devil’s crook
With Angel’s wings I do hook,
With my breath I blow you strong
With my power may lightning throng
The skies this night again, again
Upon the ground and three times round
I spin and call, may storm abound.
May wind be blown and hail be sown,
May thunder call and be lightning thrown
The skies this night again, again.

Oops remembered it.

Jokes with friend on Facebook:

'The storms will be bad tonight cuz I conjured the devil lawl'

but the joke is while I may have not actually conjured the devil there was some hooking of storm clouds done today.
