Black salt is a must have ingredient in any witch’s apothecary. Used for protection, banishing and to break hexes, it’s easy to make and can be a useful ingredient in powders, potions and candles.
Just use the ingredients listed to below to make yours. If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can use a food processor or even a grinder, but make sure to wash afterwards.
- Activated charcoal – I use charcoal disks and keep them in a jar. There is always a pile of it at the bottom to use but you can just take some from your own grill or fire pit.
- Sea salt
- Corresponding incense ashes
- Ashes from a successful spell
There are many ways to make this salt, but this is the simple recipe that I use. Make sure not to use too much sea salt, because it will turn out lighter than you may want.
