Magickal and Spiritual Uses of Halite

How Can Halite Assist Magical & Spiritual Healing ?

Halite which is a form of Salt has been used for purification and as an offering to the Gods for centuries. Most modern magical alters contain a dish of salt as standard equipment and many magic-users make it a practice to place a pinch of salt in the four corners of the room before beginning a ceremony in order to prevent negative influences from interfering.

In many magical traditions, it is considered important to purify or cleanse a space before any sort of ritual can take place. There are a several different ways of doing this, and how you do it will depend in part upon the rules or guidelines of your tradition. If you're a solitary, or your tradition is eclectic, then you may choose the method that works best for you.

Typically, when an area is ritually purified, it is done in a clockwise, or deosil, direction, but this may vary from one tradition to the next.

Ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians offered their Gods salt and water during invocations.

Salt may be added to water to consecrate it and make it more like sea water "the womb of the Earth". This water may be used in a variety of ways but is often used to sanctify an area, person or item.


In some cases, you may wish to use asperging as a method of cleaning a space. Asperging means using liquid the power of water to purify the area. Although this is typically done by sprinkling consecrated water around the perimeter of the space.

Adding salt to water also combines the element of Earth with the element of Water. This salted water may be used in asperging ceremonies to purify an item, person or area with the energy of Earth and Water, often in combination with smudging to purify with the energy of Fire and Air.

According to a Shinto tradition in Japan, small piles of salt called morijio are placed near the doorway to ward off evil and attract business. Salt is also used as a purifying and protective agent in Shinto tradition.

Some believe that salt sprinkled across doorways and windowsills will prevent evil spirits from entering a home and that standing within a circle of salt will protect you from evil influences. i myself have placed a ring of salt around my bed to protect my energies at night from unwanted attention from less than positive spirits
