How to make black salt?

Making your own black salt is a simple process that requires few ingredients. First, start by gathering your supplies. You will need one cup of regular coarse salt, one tablespoon of charcoal or ashes, a pinch of a black pepper and a large bowl.

You can use an ash from a ritual you have done before or from an incense stick or a cone.

Great tip is to keep gathering incense ash, every time you burn incense, so you have it around when you need it.

Begin by adding the salt to the bowl and stirring it until it is evenly distributed. Next, add in the charcoal or ashes and mix them thoroughly with the salt. As you mix, visualize your intent for the black salt, such as protection or banishing. Once the ingredients are completely combined, you’re done! Your homemade black salt is now ready to be used in your spells and rituals.


Tip: Do not use black food coloring, it adds unnecessarily chemicals and makes the salt lumpy.

The best way to use black salt in spells is to create a magical circle or protective barrier. This can be done by sprinkling black salt around your home or the area you wish to protect. You can also sprinkle it around your belongings or even around yourself to ward off negative energies. Once the circle is created, you can use it for whatever spell or ritual you are performing.


Another way to use black salt in spells is to create a black salt charm. To do this, take a small piece of black salt and place it in a pouch or charm bag. You can then add any herbs, crystals or other ingredients that are relevant to the spell or ritual you are performing. Once the charm is made, you can carry it with you or place it near a window or door to ward off bad energy.


Finally, black salt can be used to create a cleansing bath. To do this, simply add a little pinch of black salt to a warm bath and soak in it for a few minutes. This will help to clear away any negative energies. As Black salt contains ashes and black pepper, do not add too much, just a pinch is completely sufficient. We are working with energies rather than quantities.


Another way how to use black salt is for Candle Spells. You usually sprinkle it around the candle in a circle, before you light the candle.
