“Native Psychotropics and the Flying Ointment”
Have you ever wondered about our Native Power plants. Who they are? Where they grow? Their individual gifts and stories? Belladonna, Henbane and Datura are just some of the European power plants. They hold the key to an altered mind perspective, as well as being important physically-active medicine. Since ancient times, these incredible plants have been famed for applications in witchcraft and medicine. Through many years of clinical practice utilising the Solanaceae family as part of our Materia medica as herbalists, we are fascinated with the more subtle energies at work. We have walked with their mysteries and discovered how myth and history can give us clues as to the medicine contained within these plants that accesses subtle energy bodies as well as having physical effects. We will take a walk through the mysterious past, the exciting present and look for clues as to how we can harness the power of the witching herbs and flying ointments for deeper applications of the human condition.
