Ritual Black Salt – What is it for and how to make it

What is Black Salt used for?
Black salt can be used in spells just like regular salt, but it has a bit more of a punch to it. Use it in defense, to protect your area from evils and negativities.  It can be used as a barrier of protection. 

For rituals, use in the ritual (depending on what you are doing) or as protection during the ritual. Can also be used to draw sigils, it is a purifying substance.

For yourself, if you are in a bad mood, hold a bit of black salt and will your mood into it. Tell it to take it away, then dispose of it in the trash, bury it outside, or flush it down the toilet. I have used this as a way to help with nightmares, sleep with it next to your bed or under your pillow (in a vial, this stuff can stain and get everywhere!). I have noticed a huge difference in my thought process when I am falling asleep. Normally my mind goes wild and it takes forever to calm it down, and it likes to go to dark places which seems to carry over into dreams. With the salt near this didn’t happen.

For home, in windowsills, around doorways, and if you make a large enough batch and really need protection run around your house and make a huge barrier! Be wary though, salt can do a number on plant life and some wild life. (think of the snails!), and it is also messy, the black soot can get everywhere. Put it in satchels or vials if need be. If you are having a visitor that you don’t particular enjoy, have some of this sitting out somewhere. It will help protect and absorb whatever that energy vampire tries to dish out! The salt loves soaking up bad moods <3

For out and about, it is great for keeping that toxic coworker from spreading their negativity all over you. The salt absorbs that stuff, and once you feel like it is spent up you just toss it.


This is a great item to make a large batch of and keep it around for when the need arises.

Magical Properties of the Ingredients:
This is my own recipe, but you can find lots of different variations online. Go with what resonates with you.

Kosher Salt – I like the idea of Kosher Salt because it has been blessed by a Rabi. So it is kinda similar to holy water. It is one of the most coveted, sacred, minerals on Earth. You can also use any other type of salt you wish to use.  Protection, Cleansing, Abundance

Activated Charcoal or regular charcoal – Protecting, Banishing, Cleansing, Purifying, Healing. Activated charcoal you can find in pill form at a pharmacy usually. If you are going to make a large batch, I would recommend buying a bag of natural charcoal with no additives. It’s cheaper and will last a long time.

Those two are the main ingredients, you can make black salt with just those items. However, I like to add a bit more to it. Here is what I add:

Egg Shells – Protection, Cleansing

Ashes from incense and/or sage stick – Pretty much puts in the salt what you are using these items for.

Cloves – Banishing evil, Clear energies, Purification, Positivity

Cinnamon Essential Oil – Healing, Protection, Love, Power

Those last two are great additives, but they also make the salt smell AMAZING! 😀 I love stuff that smells awesome <3

When To Make Black Salt

You can make Black Salt any time you wish, but I would prefer to make it during a New Moon or a Dark Moon.  Prepare the salt that day and leave it out under the moon in a jar to charge it up. The New/Dark moon helps charge its protective properties.

How To Make Black Salt

Prepare your space however you like to prep, by cleansing your utensils, smudging the area, whatever it is you like to do to have a clean working space.

Take all the ingredients listed above EXCEPT the salt, and put it in a mortar. Grind it all up into a powder. Add the salt and stir it up with a spoon. Do not grind the salt up. As you are adding and grinding up everything think about what the salt is for, so you seal it up with your energies/intentions.

Store it in a jar.

How To Dispose Of Black Salt Once It Is Used

Once you have used the salt for whatever purpose it is used for, gather it up by sweeping (or if it is in a vial just dump it) and throw it in the trash. The goal is to get the energies it is holding away from you. So take out the trash as soon as possible. If you are doing work to rid something very nasty, I highly suggest taking the salt and getting it away from you as far as possible, then dump it in a river, or out in the woods somewhere.   You can also bury it in your back yard. The key is getting it away from you. You can even dump it in the toilet and flush it if you like.

STORE BOUGHT VS HAND MADE:
I believe this is true with any items you use in a metaphysical sense. If you buy culinary black salt to use like this, you are most likely buying a product that is mass produced and not touched or worked with by human hands. And if it is made with human hands, it could be people who are pretty miserable and would rather not be there. The magic comes from the Earth and US! We are the magical beings! So please, make sure your salt is created by a human, preferably someone you know, or yourself! But if you do not have time to craft such items yourself, go to Etsy and find someone who has crafted it. I offer vials of Black Salt on my own Etsy site if you choose to purchase it from a crafter. <3
