I came across two herbs one day while doing some research on Erowid. The herbs were called Calea and African Dream Root. Both herbs help with lucid dreaming and it is reputed that African Dream Root helps with recall. I decided to make an ointment because quite frankly, reports say that Calea is bitter as tea and other reports speak of smoking the herbs - neither of which I wanted to try. I figured an ointment would be the best way to go - much like a flying ointment I suppose. I've got it steeping in some Grapeseed oil on the windowsill. I think I will likely let it steep for a few days and then heat it through for a couple of hours on the stove. I'm only doing the one infusion of it to see how it goes.
This is what it looks like in daylight. I love the play of light through it, it looks like a complete other world. Magical and mysterious.
