Black Salt Recipe

For those who want something for protection, and it’s cheap and easily available, you should definitely add Witch’s Black Salt to your arsenal of witchy, magical tools.

Black Salt (not to be confused with Black Salt from Indian Cuisine) is used by Pagans, Witches, Wiccans, Voodoo and Hoodoo practitioners for its extreme protective elements.

It can be used just about anywhere. In your home, your workplace, your circle, in jar spells or satchel spells…etc.

It’s purpose is to drive away those that would do you harm; whether it be in a physical or spiritual way.

Black Salt is also said to be a key ingredient for creating a hex, binding, unbinding or curses.

I personally have not done anything with curses or hexing…I just choose not to…however, if that is your path, make sure to dispose of the used black salt; you don’t want to keep it hanging around after those types of spells.

:ocean: It was recommended that you toss it into moving water, like a stream or river. Make sure the water is moving, though as you don’t want the salt just swirling around in one stagnant spot.

:fire:You could also dispose of it by fire. If you choose to use this method, however, be sure to take the ashes far away and bury them — don’t use them for later magical applications. :upside_down_face:

You can easily make your own!

What you need:

Salt - Any salt is fine - I used sea salt. It helps Protect from evil, especially protection in and around the home. Salt is also used for purification, cleansing and dispelling negativity in many magical and traditional rituals. Salt can also be used to release attachments, including emotional attachments.

Ash - I used the ashes from my incense which have already been magically charged.

Charcoal - I use this when I burn herbs or resin incense - this too is already magically charged and it gives the “black salt” it’s “black” color.

Eggshells - make sure the thin white membrane layer is removed so all you are left with is a dried, clean eggshell ( Peel the inside membrane and toss away. Then rinse them with a little soapy water and let them fully dry)

Eggshells are good for:

:dizzy: Use your ground egg shell powder to cast a circle.

:dizzy: Bless and feed your garden (tomatoes love the added calcium).

:dizzy: Use as a protective barrier around your home, add salt to it for an extra added protection boost.

:dizzy: Use in protection spells.

:dizzy: You can also grind dry herbs into your eggs shell to create Magical powders for specific Magical intentions and goals.

Mortar and Pestle

Add your eggshells into your mortar & pestle and crush them.
Add salt. Add charcoal and ashes.
Mix until you like what you see.
Keep stored in a jar.


Great recipe! The pictures look great!!

I have some black salt I bought from Etsy but I’m sure homemade works best!

Thanks for sharing @SilverBear!! :smiley:


Thank you! I love making my own…as I feel the charcoal/ashes already have a magical intent to them, I have salt, and we eat eggs…soooooo totally cheap! #Frugal


Thank you for sharing! I’ve never made black salt before, but I definitely will one day lol


I’m new and I adore your posts. Can you help pls, what do I need except black salt to drive away those who want to hurt me, or for my protection?
My path is positive and polite.
Thank you,


Bayleaf and sage are great herbs for protection. There are many things you can do…sage cleanse your home and yourself. Burn bay leaves…add this salt mixture to window sills and door frames…or you can add a combination of those things inside a satchel or glass jar…or if you are more eco friendly – can add inside a toilet paper tube.

I suppose the protection would also depend on what are you trying to protect yourself from? Real people or spiritual protection?

I have a home blessings jar you could follow - Home Blessings Jar - 🌿

Hope this helps!


I made a huge bottle of black salt and went outside and sprinkled all around my house.
