Black Salt, a.k.a Witch's Salt, or Drive Away Salt, is a formula used primarily in occult magic and especially the practice of hoodoo/rootwork. Black salt is deployed to remove or repel evil or negativity and in both white magic and black magic spells to banish troublesome people. Black salt is also used in black magic spells to curse one's enemy.
Black salt is composed of salt plus a blackening agent. The blackening agent can be one or more of the following items; black pepper, powdered charcoal, ash, or iron scraping from a pot, pan, or skillet. Many occult shops sell black salt composed of salt that has been dyed with black food coloring and, believe it or not, this is said to work just as well.
A basic guide for the traditional uses of black salt can be found below.
-To rid evil and negativity from one's home, sprinkle black salt on the floor and then sweep it up and out the front door and off the porch toward the street. This would be an example of a white magic spell.
-To prevent a troublesome person from returning to one's home, as soon as they leave throw black salt on the porch or sidewalk and then quickly and vigorously sweep it out to the street while cursing or cussing them. If you are bold you can throw black salt at their back as they walk away. This would be an example of a black magic spell; however such could easily be adapted into a white magic spell by addressing the salt and asking that it remove this person without harming him/her and then not cursing the person. (Salt is a powerful item used in hoodoo/rootwork and will do what you tell it to do. More on salt in a separate blog.)
-To gain revenge on an enemy, sprinkle black salt into a doll baby or voodoo doll containing a personal concern from the enemy, such as a photograph, snip of hair or fingernail clippings. Black salt can be added to black magic mojos or bottle spells which are to be buried on the property of the victim or else hidden inside their home or car. Black salt can also be used to create a potion which is used to curse an enemy. To make this potion, dissolve black salt (the kind that has been dyed with black food coloring) in water. One can use a plastic water bottle or any container with a lid for this. Add to it graveyard dirt, black pepper, and one whole bottle of a black magic oil. Close the lid and shake well while cursing one's enemy. The potion is deployed by dumping it on the enemy's car or porch. These would be examples of black magic uses of black salt.
