Pagan Crafts: How to make a Sacred Salt Jar

This is not only great to have for oneself, but it makes a nice gift to someone special if you happen to know what scents they like or stones they like.

Since what you put into it is “yours”, it is like giving a part of yourself, too.

This mixture is excellent to charge stones in and to “simmer energies”.

I’ve had mine blended for years now and it has actually become quite powerful in itself.

Once it has blended for a few months, a pinch can be added to rituals, etc., bath water or as a gift to Mother Earth.

You can also make a “starter salt” as a gift for a friend.

You can also give of your own sacred salt mixture to a special friend to help blend powers and energies when they make their own sacred salt mixture.

The mixture should be made and kept in a covered stone or Earthen jar, but can be made and kept in a covered glass jar until you find one that is suitable.

I actually discovered that I like the glass jar as I can see the stones and all in it every time I walk past it.

There are thoughts on what kind of salt to use. Some use rock salt, some Earth salt and some sea salt some even use normal table salt. I used sea salt in mine.

Whatever salt you use, make sure that it is “natural” and not iodized. Y

ou blend the salt with chopped or ground herbs tiny crystals, small stones nuts seeds, jewelry locks of hair, ground incense and a few drops of your favorite oils….anything that you wish.

Even rose petals and other flowers.It so happens that I saved a lock of my son’s hair from his first haircut.

A bit of that is in my sacred salt mixture also.

When I have cleansed and charged stones and crystals by Sun and Moon, I place them in this mixture to store until I wish to use them or give them as gifts.

Often, I will simply take the top off and inhale the fragrance and feel much the better for doing so. Of course, the larger the jar, the more things you can continue to add.
