BLACK SALT

Used in banishing, warding, protection, hex-breaking, and returning negative energy to the sender

YOU WILL NEED:
a fire-safe container (cast-iron is usually quite good for this)
mortar and pestle (or like tools)
a sealing container (jar, box with locking lid, etc.)
black food coloring (optional)
salt (rock salt, epsom salt, or sea salt)
black pepper
ashes

STEP 1
This should probably go without saying, but please practice fire-safety
when burning anything, for ritual purposes or otherwise.

While technically any ashes will do for Black Salt, I prefer to know exactly what I’m putting in the mix.
I will generally use a combination of burnt herbs (sage is good for this one),
tobacco ash (I’m a smoker, so this adds the very personal element of my own breath),
and burnt paper inscribed with symbols of protection and warding.
Burn whatever substance you choose in a fire-safe container;
let it burn out on its own, and then allow to cool.
Pour ashes into the mortar and crush until they are a fine powder
(roughly the consistency of baby-powder).

STEP 2
Add salt (a small amount at a time) and black pepper (roughly half the amount of salt)
to the mortar, and use pestle to mix with the ash.
The combination should end up roughly a charcoal-gray color.
(If you choose to add black food coloring to darken the mixture, do so now,
and continue to mix until the salt is the desired color.)

STEP 3
When the mixture is complete, store in a clean, sealing container (jar, etc.)
and keep in a cool, dry place.
Use in spell-work as desired. (A little goes a long way, so a small jar should last you awhile.)
