This black lava salt is a great tool in your witches toolbox. Said to hold many trace minerals in their crystals, it is often used in cleansing rituals. You may already be familiar with black ritual salt, made from salt and ashes. The difference between ritual salt and this black salt is that this salt has no ashes and is edible! I first was introduced to this salt as part of a women’s circle ceremony. We passed around a tin, much like this one, and we licked our finger, stuck it in the salt and licked the salt from our finger. I felt cleansed on the inside, immediately and wanted to share this with you.
