Great job once again to all those who joined in for last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge - Reading Auras
Working with auras was an exercise in both sight and senses- this week, we’re reaching beyond ourselves to grasp one of the most beloved and accessible witchy tools
The theme for this week’s challenge is…
Whether it’s Table Salt , Sea Salt , Rock Salt , Himalayan Salt , or others- salt is found all across the world in many different forms.
While it was once an ancient luxury, salt is now available in just about every market you can think of- you have a treasure of the ancient world right at your fingertips!
Salt is not only cheap and accessible to the modern witch- it is also a powerful magickal tool used for purification, cleansing, and protection (among other uses).

So you are ready? It’s… CHALLENGE TIME!
