What’s black salt in magick?

Firstly, a little clarification, when we talk about black salt, we must remember not to confuse this tool of magickal practice with the black salt that is used in the kitchen.

Everyone now knows the black salt of Cyprus, the black salt of Hawaii, and Indian black salt recommended for the preparation of many dishes in the culinary field.

Undoubtedly these types of salt have good virtues, which can be used not only in the culinary field but also in magickal and spiritual practices.

However, the black salt that witches use is completely different, it is a tool created by a witch and is born from the union of salt with other ingredients which benefit from the energy processes implemented during its creation.

Origins of black salt

The origin of black salt is mostly unknown. Many attributes the birth of this practice to popular tradition, other sources claim that it originated from the Hoodoo tradition and that it later spread through the practice of Voodoo and Santeria, some sources still believe that the practice of black salt was already known to the Ancients, especially in volcanic areas. Whatever its origin, in any case, black salt has always been a great ally of the witch in protection practices.

From antiquity to the contemporary age and passing through the Middle Ages, a great power has always been attributed to salt. Already in the Neolithic times, men realized the great virtues of this natural element and over time it has been used to preserve food, preserving it from deterioration to seasoning dishes, in healing wounds, to purify the body and also to destroy.

Today, research has shown what the Ancients had known for some time, that all the trace elements and minerals necessary for the survival of mankind and that can preserve our physical and energy balances are contained in salt. We speak, of course, of natural salt and not of the industrialized one.

Table 1: Tips for Using Black Salt

In Greece, salt was used in atonement and purification rites. The Romans, on the other hand, spread some on a baby’s mouth to keep away evil spirits and give them wisdom. Similar stories are found in almost every culture in the world, but have you ever wondered where these customs came from?

The answer is very simple: as previously mentioned, salt has been used for the preservation of food and to prevent its deterioration, thanks to its antibacterial and disinfectant properties.

Salt, in fact, can kill germs and bacteria, promote healing, and can disinfect wounds. In other words, it can purify. As with many other natural elements, bio-energetic and magickal properties can be derived from manifested properties. For this reason, the Ancients have always used salt where purifications and healing rituals were required.

Black Salt symbolism

Black salt has always been considered a symbol of wisdom since it is connected with all the elements, it is contained in seawater, in the wind that brings the sea breeze, in the land from which it is extracted and, in ancient times it was thought that it was also connected to the element fire for its ability to make the earth arid and burn the roots of plants and for their ability to dehydrate.

This latter belief does not seem so bizarre, in fact, it leads us to explore another of the reasons why salt has long been used to eliminate negative presences and energies. Its dehydration capacity is strictly connected to the absorption of water and consequently, in ancient times it was thought that this capacity was strictly connected to the power to absorb negative energies, moving them away from a body or object on which the salt was spread.

This logical analysis does not serve to diminish its energetic and spiritual properties, but rather helps us to understand it better.

The salt also maintains its characteristics unaltered over time, it does not spoil, it is incorruptible, and because of its resistance, it acquires even greater power in the context of purification and protection rituals.


But why black?

The color black is at the same time linked to both life and death and this ambivalence of meaning reminds us that life and death are two different sides of the same coin, two petals of the same flower, phases of transition between one path and another.

Black is the color of the night and in most ancient cultures it is the color linked to the absolute, to the concept of emptiness, and at the same time to creation. Black is the color of the dark, the dark in which the fetus grows inside the womb, in the protective embrace of the mother who defends it from the dangers of the world to allow it to grow and develop.

This involves the deep sense of protection and safety that we all love about black salt as a protective magickal tool. Black is also the color associated with the womb of the earth, which protects the seed, nourishes it by helping the growth of the sprout, and then takes care of the roots of the plant, keeping them close to itself.

Black is, therefore, the color linked to the womb and to protection, to Mother Earth, and to the mysteries of creation and birth. This is the color of the moon in its dark phase when the New Moon prepares us for the beginning of a new lunar cycle and protects us in its darkness by hiding us from the sight of spirits linked to chaos.


The color black is therefore a deeply sacred color, closely connected with protection. Not surprisingly, black stones are said to be able to absorb negativizes such as sponges, filter them and then transform them into creative energy, just as the earth absorbs death transforming it into nourishment.

Considering all the elements analyzed so far, we should have acquired sufficient knowledge to become aware of why the black belt holds this great power in itself.

A recipe for making black salt

The best time for the creation of our black salt is the time corresponding to the phase of the New Moon, because we will be able to exploit the energy granted by this moon phase, which favors the creative processes and also allows us to make use of its great protection capacity.

The New Moon recalls the symbolism of the womb of Mother Earth and, its immense protective power. Furthermore, the New Moon is the bearer of the great power of purification and healing, so it will also help us in case we want to use our salt for purification rites.



Crush the pepper and charcoal until it becomes a fine powder. Add the salt little by little taking care not to add too much. Burn a handful of incense and then add it to the mixture.

Keep the black salt in an airtight container (it must not absorb moisture).

Testing your home for negative energies using black salt

If you want to find out if a room is infested with negative energies, you absolutely must use this method which is simple but a millennium old. It seems that in ancient Rome there was a rumor that said salt meant bad luck. In reality, it was not salt that brought bad luck, but its waste.

In fact, at that time, it was customary to welcome guests with a pinch of salt (this shows even more of its importance). Unfortunately, if this made him fall, it was a bad omen. Even in our times, it is said that dropping salt brings disgrace, even though the reason is no longer known.

The reason was that this precious asset cost a lot and the trips to get it were dangerous. Wasting it was a real misfortune, but we can continue to understand how to reveal the presence of negative energies thanks to salt.

My experience

I recently got my house tested as my husband was 100% sure the place is haunted. He keeps saying this to me, over and over since the very beginning but I have to admit that besides two or three inexplicable things happening to me I always felt safe here but, my husband, on the other hand, keeps seeing and hearing things so I decided to give this ancient ritual a try.

If you are curious to know the results, well, it was a big NONO! Nothing negative is here but my husband said that not all spirits are evil and I guess he has a very good point!

How to perform the testing ritual?

Salt testing is widely used to understand if there are negative energies in a room. Here’s how it’s done

Take a glass of water and dissolve some coarse salt. Keep adding and mix it until it becomes impossible to dissolve the last few grains. The water must be saturated with salt. Place the glass in the environment where you think there are negative energies.

Over time, the water will evaporate, and the salt crystals will remain on the bottom: this is the time to know the truth. If the crystals are in order on the bottom, everything is in place! Otherwise, if the grains are scattered in the glass it means that there is some presence of negativity and at that point, it is necessary to purify the environment.

But how does salt perceive negative flows? The saline saturation recalls the memory of the water and the lines of force connected to the physiology of things and consequently measures the levels of geopathy (the set of influences capable of promoting diseases in humans).

To explain it in a simpler way, just think that ordered, positive and harmonic forces contribute to a regular and coherent crystallization, otherwise, the negativity generates chaos creates disharmony in crystallization.

By trying to make the environment “harmonious” again by eliminating negative energy, a simple method is used: mix salt, white wine vinegar, and pure water in a glass, then place it away in the room you want to purify.

After 24 hours, if the salt has risen to the surface of the water, you will have to repeat the process, otherwise, it means that you have achieved your goal of eliminating negative energy.

I tested my place and it’s positive: negative energies are around me. What can I do?

You can use black salt to protect your home. It’s the best, most effective, and powerful way to do it. You can start with something like that and, if you see it’s not enough, you can always rely on me and my spell casting service!
