"We are an Old Craft Coven of the Hunting Path... which means we are activists in every sense... our purpose is to fight both magically and practically to protect the land, the animals that live on it, the environment, all sacred sites and any and all Pagans from attacks of any kind..."
Nick Ridge is a Witch, Magister of the Cauldron of the Alta Calleach, and with his wife runs Dorset Wildlife Rescue. Both roles are very important to Nick, and he combines his love of nature and magick in his skill as a wort-cunner, or magical herbalist.
In this DVD, Nick demonstrates traditional herblore, demonstrating how to make a dark poppet, genuine flying ointment, and various other pieces of herb lore.

Regarding the flying ointment segment: I don't agree that application of salve or oil on the genitals is advised or necessary or works best. The perineum or the fold of the arm is more common and safer. Also the effects of these alkaloids can last much longer and be recurring. The vid says half an hour. I've seen it go on and off and on again for a week or more depending on dosage. Mushrooms like Amanita in proper strength/dosage are reliably of short duration to within say 2 or 3 hours. The witch plants like Mandragora and so on, are not reliably of short duration at all.
Also the constant refrain that this 'should be done in ritual' with chanting and focus and so on: perhaps a bit more description and example would be helpful rather than simply saying that repeatedly then leaving it out otherwise. It is important but I'm afraid that this will fall on deaf ears without further explanation.
Most if not all of the content of this DVD is available on youtube for free by the way.
I bought it because he has a terminal illness and not very long to live, so for me it will be more of a living memorial.
So whether you have an particular interest or merely idle curiosity about the subject of British Witchcraft you will learn an enormous amount and it is a hugely fascinating and informative!
