Welcome to another post of Magick Monday! Where adding a little bit of magick into your everyday life is easy as pie!
I’m going to bring up a popular topic, which is something every witch has in her cabinet already which is salt. Salt has a long history for being used for purification (as you notice in my last Magick Monday post I put a pinch of salt in my room spray purification blend) not just for spiritual reasons but for things such as preserving meat and such. It is often said that salt tends to be so pure that it is known to repel the dead, hence why most people who practice ancestral work advises against purifying and cleansing an ancestor alter with salt water. It is also said when you knock down a salt shaker you take a pinch and throw it over your left shoulder to prevent bad luck. Salt can also be used as a way to cleanse soft crystals that would otherwise dissolve in water. As you can see, the list goes on and on.
The one thing I love most about salt is it’s easy to get and comes in many forms. Feel the need to purify from the inside out? Then I suggest that any form of cooking you do take the time to take that one pinch of salt and concentrate purifying with that pinch as you add it to bread, pasta, or other forms of cooking. I’m a big fan of using Himalayan pink salt for this since it’s not only part of the purifying scale but also has trace essential minerals so it’s nutritionally good for you as well.
If you’re a big bath person like I am;
I’m happy to tell you it’s easy to add salt here as well, epsom salt is great for this part and sometimes I personally will add a little bit of pink Himalayan and black lava salt for added benefits. You can enhance it with essential oils such as frankincense and sandalwood (or take a cheese cloth or sock and stick the two together along with a few other herbs and run it under the bath facet. Not only great for purifying ritual baths, but it softens your skin and is great for sore muscles. Not a big fan of baths? No worries, try out a body salt scrub. Take very fine sea salt, mix it with a carrier and essential oils and in clock-wise circular motions get as much of your body as you can while imagining all of the guck you want to release and get out. Afterwords just shower off, although be careful it will cause your shower floor to be slippery. Please note this also removes dead skin and should not be done more than once a week.
Also, please take caution if you are on a low sodium diet for health reasons and also note that too much salt can cause you to retain water and cause bloating when consuming. As they say, moderation is key so like anything else just don’t over do it.
