You probably don’t give salt that much thought – something that you cook with, put on food and find in the sea… But in fact, salt rituals have been used for centuries as one of the oldest forms of magic, often providing psychic protection, for money-making and as part of healing rituals.
The word salt derives from Salus the Roman Goddess of Health (the Greeks called Hygeia). Both Romans and Greeks used salt for sacrificial purposes, and later Jews adopted the process during their ceremonies, and Christians also believed that both water and salt were potent and could both heal the body and exorcise evil spirits.
Salt was preservative by nature, and it was seen as a religious symbol of purity, at one point it was placed in coffins as protection against the Devil. It was also used to ward off evil as part of a Holy Water mix.
To medieval alchemist’s salt represented the major essences of life alongside sulphur and mercury. For formal magic, the Earth elements is represented by the salt, providing grounding and powerful energy. If salt was going to be used in magic, traditionally it would be extracted from the sea, i.e. sea-salt.
One salt ritual that you are likely to be familiar with is throwing salt over your left shoulder, should you spill some salt. The idea being that the thrown salt will be cast into the eye of the Devil who may be lurking on the left (sinister side) shoulder. The idea originates from believing that a punishment would follow for spilling such a sacred substance.
To protect a home and its occupants salt is dissolved in water and placed in a clear glass container. The container should then be exposed to the sun and the waxing moonlight for 24 hours. Then the mixture can be sprinkled around the boundaries of the property and garden and in the corners of each internal room.
You have probably heard the expression ‘worth his salt’, this comes from a time when salt was so highly prized, in fact so much so that in Ancient Rome soldiers of the Emperor were actually paid in salt, and Celts would often barter with salt as if it was currency. So, it has become associated with money and financial and material prosperity.

I had a reading with Teya today. I was blown away by her understanding of my current situation. She made some very positive predictions and advice. I look forward to the outcome. Teya has a lovely warm personality and it radiates in her voice. Towards the end of the reading at my request she brought through some family members who passed over. I found her descriptions and messages spot on! I would love to connect with her again. Many thanks.
