Black Salt is also known as "witches salt". This is made with the ash of Cypress trees.
Black ritual salt has a long tradition in HooDoo and Santeria as a magical tool. It is commonly used to drive off undesired guests, remove negative energy from your home, protect you from outside influences, and prevent unwanted people and energy from returning.
Black salt is said to reducing body weight, treat constipation and bloating, improve digestive health, relieve muscle cramps, and reduce heartburn.
Black salt is believed to contain lower amounts of sodium and to aid in managing body weight.
Black salt has always been a great ally of the witch in protection practices.
How to use Black salt depends on what end result you wish to attain:
- As protection, sprinkle around your house in the same manner as blessed salt.
- To expel evil or eliminate negativity from your space, spread a pinch in the space, and vocalize or imagine the energy leaving.
- To protect from unwanted people or influences, sprinkle some salt outside your doors while naming the person or entity you do not wish on your property. You should also name the reasons behind this for added power.
- To remove a person from your home, carefully sprinkle some of the salt behind them, then sprinkle some salt outside of your main door.
