The Power of Salt in Feng Shui: Tips for Using Salt to Promote Positive Energy

Salt is a common household item that has been used for centuries for various purposes, including cooking, cleaning, and preserving food. Salt possesses powerful cleansing and purifying properties and is used in feng shui to eliminate old or negative chi and attract and promote a positive energy flow.

Let’s explore the different ways to use salt.

1. Salt cleansing

Salt can also be used to cleanse the energy of your home or workplace. To perform a salt cleansing, sprinkle salt in every corner of your home, including the closets, cabinets, and under the furniture. Leave the salt for a few hours, then sweep it up and dispose of it outside. This practice is believed to remove any negative energy and promote a harmonious environment.

2. Salt bowls

Another way to use salt in feng shui is by placing salt bowls in different areas of your home. Fill a small bowl with salt and place it in an area where you want to promote positive energy flow. You can also add crystals, stones, or herbs to the salt for added benefits.

3. Salt in cleaning

Adding salt to your cleaning routine can also have feng shui benefits. Salt is a natural disinfectant and can therefore be used to cleanse and purify your living space. Mix salt with water to create a cleaning solution that can be used on floors, countertops, and other surfaces. You can also add essential oils for a refreshing scent.

4. Salt lamps

Salt lamps are made from natural Himalayan salt crystals and are believed to emit negative ions that purify the air and promote positive energy flow. They are also known for their calming and soothing properties, making them an ideal addition to any living space. Place a salt lamp in the bedroom, children’s room or living room to enhance the ambiance and create a relaxing environment.

5. Salt in your wallet

Salt attracts energy, add a pinch of salt to a small pouch or bag and place it in your wallet to attract the energy of money and a positive financial flow.

6. Salt at your front door

Sprinkle a small amount of salt along the threshold to draw in auspicious energy and abundance into your home. Salt also creates a protective barrier that can help to neutralize any negative energy that may enter your home.
