Black salt is a must-have ingredient in any witch’s apothecary. Used for protection, banishing, and breaking 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 afterward.
- 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.
Black salt is used in protection and has so much power, but guess what? There is way more than just one way to make it.
Today, I’m giving you seven. Yessss….seven!
Sympathetically, salt protects. Remember the graveyard scene in Hocus Pocus?
Traditionally, it drives away the evelllll…including those fucking neighbors who keep walking across your land with their damn dogs…..oh, well that doesn’t happen anymore here. It’s black salt and some dancing around my fire pit for the win. They all scared of the witch who lives on Clayton
Don’t think when I get mysterious deliveries that shit doesn’t sit in a salt circle for a while…because it does.
We go through so much salt around here, Derwood and I keep Costco hopping, but let’s get into it. Black salt can be made a lot of ways, and depending on how I will use it, I use many different methods. Today you get seven, because God don’t like ugly and I have stuff. I do thangs. If I add sulfur and a few other things, I’m taking power from someone or something. Black Salt at it’s base is just salt, ashes and charcoal. Let’s mix it up.
