Angelique

Recommended Posts

I was wandering around another site and I found a recipe for "black salt" used in banishings.  In all my years as a Witch I've never made the stuff, nor have my guides suggested it...  I also don't see any threads about it on here, so I'm curious if anyone here has ever made the stuff before.  Now that I've seen the recipe, I'm getting whispers from the Other Side suggesting I make it with a bit of a variation.  Could this recipe be legitimate, or maybe ALMOST legit?

My guides are telling me to use ashes from a protective incense ground with sea salt.  *shrug* They've never let me down before. :)

Certainly make your own Angelique. It sells for about ten times the price of normal salt if you buy in a "witch" shop. Ground charcoal does a pretty good job to colour salt.

Good to know, thanks!  Maybe I'll start selling it in my shop too...  As soon as I get my recipe perfected. ;)

Some use salt and chimney soot (if you have a fireplace).

 

Yep ! Just to add, one can use any type of " heat source herb ",  ground pepper to ground Scotch Bonnets hot peppers etc.

 

But I thought the recipe was basically very informative. :)

I decided to go out and make some tonight.  What fun!  I'm keeping one jar and selling the other one on my Etsy store.

I'd be very interested in the symbolism behind using soot from the hearth to make black salt. Considering how much lore is attached to a home's hearth, I'd imagine it could be very protective to mix it in.

Consider the properties of soot - a material is used (wood) to make it, a catalyst (fire) acts on the material to change it, the material used has properties according to the material used, soot is black in colour. The soot would have the element of fire attached to it, and the magical properties of the wood used.

 

Soot is absorbing, it chokes and smothers, but can also set on fire (that is why one needs their chimney cleaned out once a year). In older days, the soot would also contain particles of what was being cooked on the hearth. In witch lore, they flew out of the house through the chimney, but nasties could also enter the house through the chimney, that is why witch bottles and/or other things were buried under the hearth or put somewhere in the chimney. Witches performed at least some magic on the hearth, sending it out through the chimney.
