“We hear a lot about the importance of salt in the magickal community, and rightfully so! On a chemical level, this mineral is largely comprised of two elements – sodium and chloride – that don’t occur on their own anywhere in nature. That alone makes salt pretty special.”Pie Ankiewicz, Printable Witchcraft
Easily found and obtained, salt is a must-have for any witch, mystic, and occultist. Here we will explore the transcendental and metaphysical properties of Himalayan pink salt, what it promotes, heals, removes, enhances, and more!
WHAT IS HIMALAYAN PINK SALT?
Mined in the Punjab region of Pakistan, Himalayan salt is a type of rock salt called halite. Its pink color comes from the trace minerals and elements – particularly iron – naturally found in the Khewra Salt Mine, situated near the foothills of the Himalyans. It is a fossilized sea salt developed from marine deposits. As such, it still holds remnants of ancient sea life.
Himalayan pink salt is also known as halite, pink halite, saindhava lavana, Tibetan salt, red rock salt and rock salt. It has also been called the “purest salt on Earth” as it has been developing in the mountains for over 250 million years.
WHAT IS HIMALAYAN PINK SALT USED FOR?
Outside of the general applications of salt, Himalayan pink salt in particular works wonders in magick associated with love – self-love in particular. Similar to the metaphysical correspondences of Rose Quartz, this salt can be used to amplify any kind of love magick you might be doing.
Outside of using this salt for experiencing self-love, it can also aid in making moves to go after that which self-love suggests: setting boundaries, saying ‘no’, finding your purpose, taking time for yourself, committing to healthier habits, etc.
