Notes: How to Make a Broomstick Fly

Flying WitchThe following was taken from a book I borrowed from the library:

How to Make a Broomstick Fly

Things you will need:

  • 1 besom broomstick
  • 1 cauldron
  • 1 mortar & pestle
  • 2 branches of Atropa belladonna
  • 2 roots of Mandragora officinarum
  • 1 cup of fat from a small child or blood from a flitter-mouse
  • 1 lock of freshly cut hair
  • 1 tsp. mineral water
  • 1 wiping cloth
  • 1 pair of plastic gloves (recommended)

Heat cauldron to 450 degrees. Bring fat (or blood) to a boil. Use pestle & mortar to grind Atropa belladonna and Mandrogora officinarum into a fine powder (It is highly recommended that you wear gloves since these plants are toxic). Add powder, hair and water to cauldron and stir until mixture hardens. Remove from heat and allow to cool for about 20 min. Pour mixture over besum broomstick and wipe with cloth until entire surface is covered. Allow to dry before flying.
