Hawaiian Black Salt is an edible** sea salt that obtains its rich coloring from activated coconut shell charcoal, which is infused with the salt for its health benefits.
Ritually, black salt is used to dispel negative energies & keep them away. While commonly used to protect the family & home, black salt can also be used to banish and ward away unwanted guests. Other uses for black salt include hex & curse breaking, charging scrying mirrors, and casting circles. Salt "does what you tell it to", so the key to any successful Black Salt ritual is to focus on intent.
Sprinkle black salt liberally onto items to ward off bad memories or attachments. Cast it in a line across your doors & windows to keep out evil or unwanted company. Keep it on you in a vial, tiny pouch, or sprinkle a bit to deflect gossip, bullies, or other negative attention. You can also place it in a satchel or dish under your pillow to ward away bad dreams or unwanted spirits.
When you're feeling sad, angry, or negative, add some black salt into your bathwater to help cleanse & pull that negative energy away. It can also be used in a simple ritual to get rid of worries: write what's bothering you on a piece of paper and cast it into a fire with some black salt. The fire & salt will work together to purify, and your stress will dissipate with the smoke.
And remember, Black Salt absorbs negative energy, so be sure to change it up or sweep it up weekly! You can dispose of used Black Salt by grounding it into the earth, throwing it (away from you) into the wind, or washing it away in flowing water.
**Warning: if you take medication, consult your doctor before ingesting Black Salt or any other items containing activated charcoal, as it can absorb certain medications thereby decreasing their effects.**
