Dark Moon Apothecary-Witch Salts

Posted on December 11, 2021 by laureen barker

Salts have always been associated with Witchcraft. The most prominent use we hear throughout the history of witches using salts is in rituals casting circles & warding off evil.

When one casts a circle with salt, they make a ring of salt outside of where they are standing and use this circle to create a safe and sacred place where they are connecting with the divine and being protected from evil entities. A witch, depending on her practice may call out the directions (North, South, East & West) and the elements (Earth, Aire, Fire & Water) associated with them. Salts can be coloured to represent the elements in the different quarters of the circle. Some may even draw the circle in chalk and not use salt at all.

Our Witch Salts are amped up with herbs & crystal sands to give them multi-use qualities! They focus your intention in your circle on your topic of choice, whilst providing protection and creating clear connection to the divine.

 Other Uses: Use for casting circles during ritual, keep in a bowl on your altar to charge personal items with intent, place under your pillow or bed in a bag or container to increase manifestation while sleeping & to invite divine messages from the Universe during dream time.
