Sea Salt for Good Luck
Sea salt is a type of unrefined salt that is obtained directly from the sea. The water is extracted and placed in large trays where it is left for the sun and the wind to evaporate the liquid naturally.
In this way, sea salt retains minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc and iodine, which makes it the most effective type of salt for your spells and works of Magic.

Black Salt or Witch’s Salt is a main ingredient in warding magick and banishing spells.
This type of salt is not edible, it is typically used by Witches as a protection agent, being an alternative to salt when salt is not available. Keep in mind that in ancient times, salt could be very expensive and hard to come across.
