Salt has an increduble ability to absorb negative energy.
It has been used throughout different cultures and across time for this very purpose.
A salt bowl is a wonderful way to ensure a peaceful and relaxing environment.
Choose a Bowl
I love copper, it’s a great conductor. You can choose any natural material you like and even reserve that bowl purely for that purpose.
Choose a Salt
I have chosen Black Sea salt from Crete and Murray River Sea salt from Australia. The choice of salt is endless.
Adding Herbs and Oils
You can add protective herbs and oils, I have chosen Juniper berrys both the berry and the oil, rosemary, both the herb and the oil, peppercorns and cloves. Once again the choice is yours.
The essential oils make such a beautiful addition to the atmosphere!
Set your Intentions
When making the salt mix, set your intentions. I set my intentions for harmony, banish negativity and protection.
Place the bowl where you feel the energy needs to settle or where you may need protection.
People often place this over a fireplace, front or back door. Mine sits in the front room of my home. It works well in high traffic areas of the home or even a business.
What to Consider
As this is the salt used to absorb the negativity it is important that you:
- Keep it away from pets and children
- When the energy of the salt doesn’t feel clean anymore get rid if it.
- Get rid of the salt by disposing it where you don’t want plants to sprout like in between the cracks of the concrete. In time the earth will neutralise this energy.
