Black Salt - How to use it

For those who want something for protection within their stash of magical tools, you should look into Witch’s Black Salt. Black Salt (not to be confused with Black Salt from Indian Cusine) is used by Pagans, Witches, Wiccans, Voodoo and Hoodoo practitioners for its extreme protective elements.

It can be spread just about anywhere – your home, your workplace, your prayer circle, etc – and its purpose is to drive away those that would do you harm (whether physical or spiritual). Black Salt is also said to be an ingredient for creating a hex or curse, but this goes against my beliefs in practice, so this information will only be focusing on its use for protection and cleansing.. Remember, whatever you cast out comes back to you.

To use, you can sprinkle it along your household’s property line, across your threshold, or as a way to cast a circle. To protect you as you sleep, sprinkle some under your bed, or place in a bowl to keep under your bed. Change the salt from time to time since it tends to absorb all the negative very quickly. When you change it throw that salt away. A pinch in each corner of the room before tracing the magic circle in our rituals drives away negative energies and enhances the protection of the circle. You can also trace the circle with this salt. · Cleans, purifies and enhances other magical tools of daily use in spells or rituals such as amulets, sigils, candles, stones, gems, wands etc. · Replace normal salt with black salt in your spells. · It is used in the creation of witch bottles.

To throw away any excess or any Black Salt that’s fulfilled its duty, bury it within your yard. However, if you ended up using it for a hex or curse, then bury it in the woods far away from your home and from where anyone or anything may accidentally stumble across it. Violent energies are tricky things, and can turn out to be quite clingy.
