Type of Spiritual Experience
H Boguet writing in 1590 said that people who were not witches had flown out of the chimney with the aid of a salve [Parrinder: Witchcraft European and African]. The ingredients of these so called salves have never been ascertained from the literature [although it may survive passed by word of mouth].
A description of the experience
R Scot – The Discoverie of Witchcraft 1584
It were marvell that when a stranger is anointed therewith they have sometimes and yet not always, the like operation as with witches
Hans Peter Duerr - Dreamtime
J Tomeo and M Estadella wrote that rue, the witch’s herb, was the most important ingredient of the witch’s salve
