Black salt is a traditional ritual component used in removing negativity and in keeping away evil forces or bad neighbors. Sal Negro is a must have for your warding kit!
I follow a personal recipe for my Sal Negro, and utilize it for a variety of charms or spells. You may have heard of it as Witch’s Salt, Sal Negro or even Drive Away Salt, no matter how it is labeled, this salt follows the same purpose: highly charged Protection, Banishing and working with the Otherworld. My recipe includes ash and charcoal from my ritual fire pit, Cascarilla, and a few extremely potent herbs.
There are many uses for black salt and actually it is not intended for use in “black magic” as it is made to absorb and contain negative energy. I use it primarily as a protective tool, as it keeps away bad dreams, keeps evil out when used in windows and doorways or around your property, it can be used to remove or uncross curses. It can also be used as a deterrent to defeat gossip, busybodies or pests and it can be used in the calling of spirits.
Please remember that black salt absorbs negative energy and can only be used once and must be disposed of very carefully.
Weight is approximate and does not account for settling. I only make my black salt during the full moon or dark moon (depending upon my intentions) giving it extra boost of energy. I do not use a filter so you may find stems and such from the sage.
