1 cup pure beeswax
2/3 cup of jojoba oil mixed with 1/4 cup of wheat germ oil
9 drops of the pure essential oil of juniper berry
9 drops of the pure essential oil of bog myrtle
9 drops of the pure essential oil of sandalwood
9 drops of the pure essential oil of yarrow
9mL total of a combination of the pure essential oils of chamomile, rose otto, jasmine
3 grams of poppy petals *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of hops *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of wormwood *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of dittany of Crete *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of passionflower *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of skullcap *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of lavender *do not crush or they won't strain*

In a glass double boiler (a pot used in making candles to melt the beeswax at a lower
temperature and prevent wax fires) - do not use metal, melt the beeswax gently using as
low a heat as possible. Once the beeswax has melted, mix in half of the jojoba/wheat
germ oil combination until it is smooth.

Once the mix is smooth (you have just made the base) then add your herbs to this
mixture.

Once added, keep at as low a temperature as possible, stirring constantly with a wooden
spoon putting your magical intention into the mixture so as to charge it (or a very clean
stick which you sanded and created just for this purpose. Doing this increases the
magical intent of the mixture and so helps give it a boost).

After 33 min, ensure that the beeswax is quite liquid and use a mesh strainer you don't
intend to use again to strain out the herbs from the mixture of beeswax and jojoba oil
and place the mix back into the glass double boiler. Don't worry if you still have some
herb in it however the herb will decay and so this shortens the life of your mix. By this
time, if you have kept your mixture at a constant low temperature, you should notice
that it has a slightly different consistency from cooling.

Now combine the remaining jojoba oil and the wheat germ oil with the mixture the
flower based essential oils (jasmine, rose, etc) in a separate container. Before the
beeswax and jojoba oil mix begins to harden and without adding more heat, add first the
pure essential oils (bog myrtle, juniper berry, etc) then the essential oils and base oils
mix .

This needs to be done when the mixture is as cool as possible but still fluid as essential
oils are volatile and lose potency when heated to too high a temperature.

Flying Oil, continued

Now that you have finished you can pour your mix into glass, heatproof jars (as it will
still be warm) and let it cool. Cap only after it has cooled and store in a cool, dark place. I
suggest storing it in the fridge with the jar tightly capped to avoid moisture getting in.
Use within a month --- this mixture is not suitable for long term storage but can last
under perfect conditions for 2 - 3 months.

This ointment is potent. Use it carefully and treat it with respect as you should all herbs
and essential oils. Just because they are herbs, doesn't mean they are safe. To use, apply
first a small amount to the inside of your elbow to check for reactions. Then if it is safe,
apply a small amount in a thin coating to the inside of your wrist and a small amount to
your temples.

For faster absorption, spread a thin coating on the soles of your feet. While books which
talk about flying ointments suggest smearing it all over your body, I do not recommend
this approach.

Keep this mix away from your eyes nose, mouth and other sensitive areas of your body.
Contrary to what you may have read on the web, this should *not* be placed in the
genital area of the body. Do *not* ingest this mixture as this mixture contains oils with
contraindications.

I suggest that you avoid using this mix if you: are pregnant, have high blood pressure,
have a history of mental illness, or if you are suffering from prolonged insomnia.

Alternate base combinations - these vary in room temperature state from quite solid to
quite liquid.

You can vary the firmness of the mixture you need by altering the amount of beeswax or
oil used - more beeswax for a firmer mix, more oil or a softer mix.

Recipes for bases are guidelines only and after adding herbs or oils, you may feel the
need to adjust the firmness. I suggest placing a teaspoon of the mix in the freezer to
check for firmness before adding more wax or oil. There is no need for tincture of
benzoin as is so popular with some recipes as this tincture is used for mixtures
containing a shortening or fatty base where the fat is solid at room temperature.
