Bright Blessings, Witches! Next up in the Magickal Salt Series is Lavender Salt. If you are new to this series, I’ll touch briefly on what’s been said about salt in general:
“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.”
Salt is easy to find and is a must-have for any witch, mystic, and occultist. Let’s explore the magickal side of Lavender Salt, its transcendental properties, what it’s used for, and how you can incorporate it into your practice.
WHAT IS LAVENDER SALT?
A mixture of dried lavender buds and sea salt.
Lavender Salt is also known as Lavender Fleur De Sel and French Lavender Sea Salt.
WHAT IS LAVENDER SALT USED FOR?
Outside of the typical applications of salt, Lavender Salt in particular is used in magick for psychological healing, protection, blocking psychic attacks, emotional repair, and cleansing the home – especially at entry points and in the bedroom.
Lavender Salt may also be used for cleansing crystals; however, make sure that the crystals you are cleansing can withstand salt. You can also use this salt to cleanse other magickal tools and objects as well.
MAKE YOUR OWN LAVENDER SALT
When you craft your own Lavender Salt you are infusing it with YOUR magick. While you can certainly purchase premade blends from a metaphysical store, homemade salt tends to be especially potent and therefore more effective in your casting.
Here’s a basic recipe to make your own Lavender Salt:
- 1/2 Cup Coarse Sea Salt
- 3 tsp Dried Lavender Buds
Before adding the lavender to the salt, gently crush the buds using a mortar and pestle. If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, apply pressure to the buds using the back of a spoon. Be mindful if you use the spoon method because the lavender will go everywhere if you aren’t careful.
We crush the buds to release the fragrant oil inside. Once they’re all crushed, add it to the salt. Stir widdershins (counterclockwise) if you plan on using the Lavender Salt for any type of repellent work like blocking psychological attacks. If your plans for the salt is to bring in healing or emotional repair, stir deasil (clockwise) for attracting it into your life.
Store your magickal Lavender Salt in an airtight container.
There you have it, Witches! Another day, another salt you can add to your magickal arsenal. Have you used Lavender Salt before? Have you made your own? Let me know in the comments! And as always, Bright Blessings and Happy Crafting!
