Hexensalbe Witches Flying & Shapeshifting Ointment
I shall go into a Hare,
With sorrow and sych and meikle care;
And I shall go in the Devil's name,
Ay while I come home again.
Origins of a flying ointment was utilized as an herbal salve, ointment or oil that witches used to anoint themselves prior to certain rituals and rites. The components of this flying ointment produced a trance-like state of mind when applied to the skin.
This alteration in our consciousness gives us visions where we can visit both intentional and unintentional locations, and communicating with the spirit world.
Hexensalbe Witches Flying Ointment is also used to induce the experience of shapeshifting as it is also manifested in the likeness of the Iberian Enchanted Moura, the shapeshifting maidens of Lusitanian folklore.
