The spiritual uses of salt are plentiful. This substance is very versatile in its scope and utility. Some use it to make a protective circle, ward off evil spirits, or cleanse a space or person from negative energy. In other contexts, salt is thought to have mystical powers that can be used for divination, healing, or manifestation work.

In particular, salt is often used in money rituals. For centuries this mineral has been a symbol of wealth and good fortune. As such, it has been used to amplify the power and strength of rituals. Its neutralizing effect can block or counteract the work of negative energies. So, what better ingredient to add to a money ritual?

Depending on the nature of the work, salt may be sprinkled outside or in the corner of a dwelling, added to a spiritual bath, given as an offering to a deity, or added to a floor wash or other concoction. There are many other spiritual uses of salt in conjure. As an earth element, this precious staple maintains a grounding quality, which makes it perfect for purification, protection, and preservation.


All ritual work should begin with some form of purification or cleansing. Salt has the power to neutralize, balance, and stabilize energy. As such, it is great for cleansing prior to any ritual work. When engaging in money magic, it is particularly important to cleanse yourself and your space of negative or low vibrational energy. Such frequencies can interfere with the quality and potency of the spell work.


Salt not only attracts good spirits, but it also wards off evil ones. As such, this ingredient is a staple in protection work. It is often placed around a ritual space, such as a circle, or sprinkled in the corner of a dwelling to dispel malevolent energy. Salt is especially useful to add to spell work that takes 24 hours or longer to complete. It creates a protective barrier around the work to prevent it from the attacks of onlookers.


As with food preservation, salt can sustain spiritual work. In which case, using it in money rituals is ideal as it will help to preserve the gains you receive from your ritual. It is important to keep in mind that manifesting money is not useful if you don’t properly manage the resources you receive. Otherwise, you will have to perpetually perform money magic. Adding salt to your work in some form can help you gain wisdom on how to sustain the wealth you achieve through your work.


Salt also makes things palatable or tolerable. In many instances, it enhances the flavor of even the blandest or most insidious dishes. It can likewise add an extra flair of flavor to your ritual work. Even if you are enduring the most trying financial situations, a salt offering will help you tolerate your circumstances until you manifest your desired outcome.
