How To Make Black Salt & What It’s Used For BY: Avery Hart

This spell casting ingredient is a staple for all kinds of witches. Black salt is a very handy ingredient to have in your cupboard, it can be used for protection, banishing and breaking hexes and can also be used for laying simple hexes and curses of your own. It’s useful for driving away anything and everything from depression, nasty spirits, other magic workers and even unwanted guests.

Black salt is also surprisingly simple to make! Using a mortar and pestle is ideal but if you haven’t got one you can just as easily mix your ingredients in a food processor or spice grinder though I would recommend thoroughly cleaning it afterward.

You Will Need:

  • Sea Salt
  • Charcoal (from a fire is best but in a pinch you can just as easily use activated charcoal powder)
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • Incense ashes (cone incense works well)
  • A Mortar and Pestle

Grind the pepper and charcoal into a fine powder before adding your salt. Add salt slowly, making sure not to add so much that the color becomes more grey than black. When your salt is evenly mixed, transfer it into a fireproof container and use the salt as a bed to burn a cone of incense. When the incense has burned out, mix the ashes into the salt.

Store the salt in an airtight container. If you live in a humid environment the charcoal and salt will suck up all of the moisture from the air leaving you with damp salt or, if left long enough, a black salt brick.

The black salt is now ready to use, the most basic way to use it is to make a line of black salt just outside of the front and back thresholds of your house. Some people may also line their windows.

Other Ways to Use Black Salt:

Goddess Knowledge – High Priestess

The high priestess is the direct representative of the goddess on earth. She has direct responsibility for functions that ensure fertility and ongoing creation. Priestess often were responsible for ensuring rain, for the goddess was the giver of few and of rain. They often tended a sacred flame, the embodiment of the creative spark of life.

The High Priestess is the Great Goddess herself, a universal figure founder in such diverse guides as Isis in Egypt, Juan Yin throughout all of Asia, Athens in Greece, and Rhiannon among the Celtics. This goddess is all-knowing and all-wise; she creates life out of herself and bestows life-giving waters. At the proper time she takes life away so that the divine spark in each person may be freed to continue on its journey. The High Priestess is a reminder of the innate wisdom in each of us. She demands that we connect to the divine within and manifest it in the world.

 

 

I did not purposely pull this week’s card. It was on top after I shuffled the unposted Goddess Knowledge Cards. I personally do not look at myself as “the direct representative of the goddess on earth.”  The reason being is my dearest sister has pointed out to me something I let go to the way side which is the Goddess lives in all who ask. This goes for he God Consort also.
