Front Cover
DNA Press, 1999 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 116 pages
Have you not always wondered as a child if witches really flew during the night on their brooms? And what was their destination? "How Do Witches Fly?" is an answer to these questions. It shows that witches anointed themselves with the "flying" ointment before they flew to their gatherings on special nights of the year. The book scientifically dissects the ointment and reveals its herebal and animal ingredients and biochemical components. It is a popular science treatise on alkaloids and their action, spiced with curious stories about Mediaeval witchcraft rituals. It offers recipes of the ointment and advances a biochemical theory on the mechanisms of the ointment action on human senses and perception. The book features the art of the world-renowned artist Barbara Broughel, which bridges the history of New England witchcraft trials and contemporary American society. "How Do Witches Fly?" is a charming reference book for students of herbalism, biochemistry, Mediaeval history and occultism of various ages and education. What a great Halloween reading! But Halloween is every night according to the author.
