In the medieval period preparations with hallucinogenic herbs were part of folk remedies but the Church demonized these practices creating the classical “witch” stereotype and what history has called the “witches’ ointment.” This book presents dozens of these psychoactive formulas gleaned from rare manuscripts all over the world including spells, love potions, and herbal preparations. This is the interview with Thomas Hatsis on his book "The Witches' Ointment - The Secret History of Psychedelic Magic" by Inner Traditions/ Park Street Press.
