Salt and the Empath

It is said that the ‘father of medicine,’ Hippocrates, was amongst the first to discover the, almost magical, healing ability of sea salt, after noticing how quickly seawater would heal wounded fishermen’s hands.

Sea Salt Not only is sea salt a great medicinal healer, it is deeply purifying. It has the power to draw out and dissolve negative energies from the emotional and physical body. This is especially helpful if your day involves interacting with others, where too often you end up picking their stressed or anxious energy. For Empaths, salt can be a huge grounding, energy clearing tool.

Sodium (salt) is essential for health. It regulates the body’s water balance and is essential for proper electrolyte balance. But not just any salt, it has to be the stuff nature created in its natural form…

Organic, unrefined salt is crystalline in structure and is easily absorbed into the bloodstream because our blood also has a crystalline structure.

Unrefined salt is packed with essential minerals vital for good health. These essential minerals are easily assimilated and work in harmony with the body.

My personal favourite is pink Himalayan  rock salt, the purest rock salt in the world.

Pink Himalayan rock salt comes from ancient sea salt deposits in the Himalayan mountains and has the full spectrum of 84 trace minerals and elements (regular table salt has only 4). You can safely add this to your food, or allow a small particle of it to dissolve on the tongue, before slowly drinking a pint of clean fresh water

Clearing Negative Energy


The best way to clear the body of negative energy is to have a daily salt cleanse. The ocean is the absolute best way for this. But, if you don’t live near the ocean, a salt bath works incredibly well.

Immersing the body for at least 20 minutes in salt water will get rid of any negative debris caught in your energy field.

For best results add 2 cups of sea salt to a warm bath (along with your favourite essential oil or a crystal for an extra balancing boost).

If you don’t have time for a soak then another great option is a salt-scrub before showering. (You can easily make this from equal parts fine milled sea salt and vegetable oil).  Not only will the salt clear unwanted energies, it will also leave your skin silky smooth and glowing.

Clear a Room of Negative Energy

Simply sprinkle fine salt crystals over the carpet and leave overnight. In the morning vacuum up the salt crystals and with it you will lift any residual negative energy.

You can also leave bowls of heavily salted water in the four corners of the room to soak up any dark energies that may be lingering.
