Traditionally, Witches Spell Salt is a mixture of salt and charcoal.
Mixed together with herbs, ash and pepper, a witches spell salt makes for the perfect ingredient in any and all spell work.
Some witches will use salt to represent the element of earth, since it is a mineral, or some will use it to represent water, as salt comes from the sea. Some magic users will use ritual salt as an offering to their gods and goddesses.
If someone spills the salt at dinner, it means a violent family quarrel is on the way.
In parts of northern England and Scotland it was bad luck to lend salt, as the person borrowing it can use it as a magical link to curse you.
There is also a tale that bewitched cattle will not touch salt.
If you spill salt you must throw it over your shoulder to bring you good luck and to keep evil at bay.
