I think the Sabbat ointment is the closest to your requirements. Hardly anyone uses monkshood anymore, its just too dangerous, same with water hemlock.
You see those in the ancient recipes, but frankly, I don’t think they are worth the risk. If you want to enhance your ointment, have a glass of mead to drink and/or light some witch’s smoke incense (also from Sarah Lawless’ site) after you have rubbed it on to pressure points (third eye, temples, wrists, behind knees, side of groin, between your toes, arch of your foot, etc.
The essential piece of using flying ointments is to do a ritual with them. I don’t suggest putting them on and just going to bed. I suggest drumming, sex magic, treading the mill, or some other form or ritual with them. It is super excellent to use them outside in a wild spot or bottom of a garden or in an altar/temple room.
I have used Sarah’s and have made my own similar recipes to hers for these purposes. I was going to make my own and sell them, I might still, but I was first intending to do that when Sarah was always selling out of hers and there was a need in the market—but I think she is making bigger batches now and I don’t think it would be worthwhile to try and sell them, so I am thinking of doing something different with my plants.
I recommend this book: http://www.moon-books.net/books/craft-of-the-wise its a good primer and covers a lot of ground, but it’s not your standard Wicca 101 thing. It includes a working to meet your ancestor. When you meet her you can ask her about if she was a mystic of any sort. Often old witches don’t call themselves witches, but they did the same sorts of things we call witchcraft now.
Right now I am focusing on Faery Faith from the Western Esoteric Tradition. I am doing the rising light below rite and then the Dark Goddess rite, both are in his book Earth light. I am interested in a variety of fairy faith traditions, right now this is the one most easily accessible to me, as RJ Stewart lives in my state and I have been to some of his workshops and will be going to more.
I think the best way to get started in Fairy Faith is to read old fairy tales, and then spend time outdoors meditating, and making offerings.
Another great way to get started is with the holey-stone cord. It helps you see Fairies in your dreams.

I know in some paths, such as germanic paganism/asatru for instance, followers will adhere to the Nine Noble Virtues or something similar.
If you have a set of virtues/principles that you follow as a lifestyle choice, that you also feel defines you as a member of whatever sect of paganism you belong to, or type of witchcraft….reblog this and share with us! For science.
These are important to me as a devotee of Irish gods. From love comes hospitality and devotion, from passion comes the warrior path and art, from loyalty comes responsibility and honesty. There are many more virtues that branch off, but those three times three are core.
