What is Red Salt?

Most witches already know what black salt is, but I feel like many witches (especially baby ones) don't quite think of other salts. For example: red salt. Red salt is an ingredient for a multitude of different magics and practices, including further powering a spell, manifestation, protection, libido magic, and passion magic. It's commonly used in spell jars or to replace regular salt, and occasionally in kitchen magic.

So, how does one make red salt? Well, there are many recipes, and the recipes vary from witch to witch, just like black salt. Here is my personal recipe for a small batch.

What you need

  • A cleansed jar with a lid
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp cayenne
  • 1 tbsp red chili flakes
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp finely crushed bay leaves
  • Simply add all your ingredients into your jar, give it a shake, and use it as needed. I personally enjoy using red salt in spell jars relating to self-defense, personal power, and general protection. I also enjoy using it to anoint candles for spells and rituals to enhance the power behind them. I can also suggest adding a pinch or two (very small amount) to kitchen spell recipes to enhance its power as well, but be light with it because the flavors may not go along with what you've made.

    As always, do your research, be safe, and blessed be!
