What is black salt?
Bad vibrations occasionally find their way into everyone’s life from time to time.
This includes ill-fated relationships, poor workplace circumstances and incompatible roommates or living situations.
These things often lead to depression, low-functioning behaviors and unhealthy habits. Nip it in the bud before it gets unbearable.
Metaphysically, black salt absorbs negative energy, spiritually poisonous vibes and general yuck.
Use it for everything from soaking up a bad mood to driving away toxic people from your life.

How to Make It
Combine salt and black additive of your choice.
Then, consider using the energy of the dark moon to prepare this concoction, which heightens its protective properties.
Charge it by leaving it outdoors under the dark moon or with any other charging method you prefer.
Including natural additives to your black salt is kind of like making specialty butter.
Of course, the plain stuff works just fine, but if you want to get fancy or more specific, an extra ingredient for added magical flavor never hurts.
For extra punch or to customize your black salt for a specific purpose, consider adding any one of the following.
Rosemary Essential Oil
Add a few drops of rosemary oil for protection from harmful people or toxic relationships.
Also a nice addition if you plan to use your salts for home protection or to bless the perimeter of your sacred space.
Use about 8 drops for every 5 ounces of black salt.
Add a little cayenne for black salts intended to dispel anger or toxic relationships.
Perfect for dealing with difficult roommates or hard-to-handle relatives.
Lavender Essential Oil
Dark moon divination requires the practitioner to open herself up to the unseen world.
So, if you’re making a batch of black salts for psychic protection, consider adding a little lavender essential oil to block invisible ickiness.
Or, add it to a batch for easing emotional pain, grief or anxiety.
Cinnamon Essential Oil
Include cinnamon essential oil for protection from a broken heart or pain in a romantic relationship.
Or, include cinnamon essential oil for black salts you plan to use after a paranormal investigation to clear away negative entities or settle disturbed energies.
Include about 5 drops of cinnamon essential oil per 5 ounces of black salts.
Caution: Do NOT allow pure, uncut cinnamon essential oil to make contact with your skin. It burns like a mother. Trust me, I learned the hard way.
Ways to Use Your Black Salts
There are an infinite number of ways to use black salts. Here are a few brainstormed for you.
-Sprinkle it around the perimeter of your house to guard the hearth and home.
-Add some to a car protection charm to give it a boost.
-Place protection gemstones in a bag of black salt to cleanse and recharge them. (Be sure to rinse them thoroughly before use).
-Are you dating? Carry a small glass jar of black salts with cinnamon oil to protection your heart from lovers with bad intentions.
-If you’re in a toxic friendship, get a picture of the two of you together. When you’re ready to end the friendship, place the photo in a biodegradable container (a dye-free brown bag works) and bury it somewhere away from your home. Walk away and don’t look back.
-Mark the perimeter of your outdoor sacred space when you cast a circle to protect you during ritual. (Don’t use it on an indoor circle, as it may stain carpet or flooring).
