I am trying to plan out my Lughnasadh celebration and was perusing Pinterest and the WWW for ideas. I came across one offering that I really loved but it it included orange ritual salt. I know how to make black salt, but orange? (Or any other color for that matter)
Does anyone have any ideas? It is meant to bring inspirations, joy, fulfillment. I have an idea but wanted to see what everyone else thought or if there was a certain “recipe” out there similar to black salt.
Thanks in advance!!
I’m intrigued! Can’t wait to see what everyone says!
Off the top of my head, I’d say, you could add a drop of food coloring to salt. A tiny bit of colored fruit added to salt. Or A few flakes of orange rind into your salt. Um, um…Out of ideas.
I would imagine you could use the zest of a dried orange or powdered orange peel. Given the correspondences with the sun, joy, and inspiration, that’s what makes sense to me
Thanks I couldn’t remember zest for the life of me. CRS, ya know [can’t remember…um .]
I can’t mark both as a solution but this is exactly what I was thinking! Orange peel and maybe orange food coloring. I was more trying to make sure that they’re wasn’t a common recipe that I didn’t know about, lol.
In the image I saw, it looked slightly “chunky”, reminded me a bit like a face scrub, so I was thinking of adding a little bit of pulp from an orange as well to give it that slight clumpy texture. And then charge it with solar energy.
Thank you @MeganB and @Garnet!!
You’re welcome! I don’t know of any common recipe but I would be interested in hearing your experiences if you make and use the orange salt it sounds neat!
I plan to use it as part of my Lughnasadh offering and ritual so I’ll let you know how it goes!
I found that some Himalayan salt is naturally orange. I found an orange salt face scrub…. I was also thinking orange peel.
I made some “solar salt” inspired by Kasandra’s Yuletide Solar Salt 🌞 Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Solar Magick - #19 by Jeannie1 recipe … hers is great and my variation has sea salt, himalayan pink salt, orange peel, cinnamon and citrine in it and it has smelled good for several months!
And u can substitute epsom salt for sea salt. Or leave it as epsom.
@Amaris_Bane u are sooooooo welcome love
