The mystery of salt
Salt is used a lot within witchcraft, keeping people safe, in rituals, and so much more. Salt is usually used within witchcraft for protection and purification. Protection is the big reason why people use salt. This is why some people might see salt circles during rituals or piles of salt somewhere while something is happening.
People believe salt’s magical powers come from the moon because salt is extracted from water, and moons pull off the tides.
If you ever feel like you are in danger, something evil is near, etc., surround yourself with some salt until you feel safe again.
I got all my information from “The Little Book of Witchcraft” by Andrews McMeel.
