Flying Ointment FAQ's
- What is a flying ointment? Flying ointments are a marvelously sinister creation that have had a revival in recent times due to the popularity and resurgence of European Traditional Witchcraft. A flying ointment is a balm or oil that has been infused with psychoactive plants such as Atropa Belladonna, Hyoscyamus Niger, Mandragora Officinarum, Datura Inoxia, Datura Stramonium, Papaver Somniferum, Cannabis, Foxglove, Aconite, and many other ingredients to purportedly allow the witch to fly to the sabbath to partake in devilish revelries and celebrations. Through modern research and testing we now know to stay away from plants such as Aconite as they are much more poisonous and lethal compared to Atropa Belladonna, Hyoscyamus Niger, Mandragora Officinarum, Datura Inoxia, and Datura Stramonium which are the plants I most commonly include in my flying ointments.
- Which one is best for beginners? I always recommend mandrake to beginners as its very gentle but still very potent while lending its euphoric qualities. Henbane is also another great ointment to start with as it too is extremely gentle.
- Which one is the strongest? None of the ointments are stronger than the other. They all have similar qualities and effects but some of the effects also differ between the ointments.
- What should I expect when using a flying ointment? When used in doses of 3-7ml you should feel the euphoric and aphrodisiac effects of the tropane alkaloids. Some people feel energized when using the ointments and some feel very drowsy. When used in a dosage of 3-7ml it is common to feel as though you are a bit intoxicated by alcohol. Warm and red cheeked, happy, and joyous. These plants have historically been used for thousands of years to treat melancholy and depression.
- Will Haus Of Ophidious flying ointments make you high or “trip”? No! You should never be high or “trip” and hallucinate. If this happens you have used way too much and should wash the affected are with soap and water then seek immediate medical attention.
- How much should I use? I always suggest that you start with a pea sized amount and wait for 1-2 hours for effects to kick in to see if you are allergic to anything in the ointment. If all is clear after a test patch then you can up your dosage. If you want to use them “medicinally” for pain or insomnia then only a small amount needs to be used such as 1-2 pea sizes on the area where the pain is (avoiding mouth, eyes, nose, and genitals). When you are wanting to experience the euphoric and aphrodisiac effects then you should start with 3-4ml(.75-1tsp) and wait for 2 hours. If you want it to be any stronger you can apply another 3m(.75tsp)l. I HIGHLY suggest and urge you to not use more than 7ml (1.75tsp) of an ointment within a 48 hour period so as to not experience any of the adverse effects of having too much of the tropane alkaloids in your system.
- How often can I use one? No more than 7ml should be applied within a 48 hour period. Ointments should only be used in large quantities (5-7ml) 2-3 times a month. A medicinal dosage of 1-3 ml can be used for a few days at a time but a waiting period of 3-5 days should be practiced in between usages of more than 3 days. This will allow your body to not build a tolerance to the tropane alkaloids. A medicinal dosage would be using the ointment is a 1-3ml dosage for a few days and then giving yourself a no-use period of 3-5 days.
- Are they dangerous? Haus Of Ophidious ointments are safe to use topically as long as you’re staying in the recommended dosage range. Don’t go slathering yourself in an entire jar of ointment as the tropane alkaloids in the plants used can have life altering effects including death. Plants in the nightshade family are quite safe when used topically. They should never be ingested. Some side effects can include slowed heart rate, dilated pupils, blurry vision, nausea, dry mouth, trouble urinating, and drowsiness. Most users of my flying ointments won’t experience these effects, but if you do, try using a smaller dose after waiting a few days to allow the tropane alkaloids to leave your body. If you experience extreme nausea, vomiting, a fever, or experience heart palpitations you should wash the area you applied the ointment to with soap and water and seek medical attention. I always suggest to have someone watch you while you use the ointments or let someone know what you are putting on your body and have them check in with you every hour to make sure you aren’t having a bad reaction.
- What is the shelf life? The shelf life on Haus Of Ophidious flying ointments are 2-3 years after purchase.
- Can I mix Haus Of Ophidious ointments with cannabis or alcohol? Flying ointments pair well with cannabis and alcohol but be advised that this will accentuate the effects that make you more drowsy.
- Why do your ointment listings say “sold as curio only”? I have this on all ointment listings and instructions for legal reasons. With that said, if you decide to use these ointments externally you do so at your own risk and understand that Haus Of Ophidious LLC can not be held accountable for any reactions that use of our ointments may cause. I personally use these ointments on my body and thousands of others have as well with no reports of adverse or negative effects.
- Can I use Haus Of Ophidious flying ointments if I am on medication? If you are taking any medication you should consult your doctor before you use a flying ointment. Do not mix flying ointments with medications containing atropine, hyoscyamine, or scopolamine as these chemicals are in all of my flying ointments containing nightshades and can cause severe reactions due to having too much in your system.
Do not use Haus of Ophidious flying ointments if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have heart, liver, or kidney issues, have glaucoma, or if you are allergic to salicylates or Aspirin ( due to the presence of poplar buds). Discontinue use if a rash occurs.
