I don’t always want actual flames when I’m using the element of fire in my work, and some people can’t have fire where they practice. This is part green witchery, and part kitchen witchery. The good thing about this is that it can be made so it’s 100% edible, and can be used in cooking, or spells where you might want to eat or drink the spell when you’re done.
- 2 parts sea salt
- 1 part paprika
- 1 part red pepper
- 1 part garlic
I like to throw them all in a dry pan and heat them real quick while I mix them up. Just enough to get some of the energy and intent from the flame into the mix. The salt is just the base, it holds the energy from everything else in a real nice way, and makes it perfect for using as a spice. The paprika, red peppers, and garlic are all tied to the element fire. They’re all warming spices, and have the same effect as a fire. In small amounts, when controlled, this is a warming spice that adds just a bit of heat. Too much though, and it can burn.
These can be used to represent the element of fire at your altar, circle, as an offering, ect…anything where you might want a lit candle, you could use a jar, pinch, or pile of fire salt. Anything where you want to add the properties of fire to a spell, you can add some fire salt. Want more passion? Add a pinch of fire salt. Need some creativity and inspiration? Just a dash will do. Want to curse some jerk head? Fire salts can help you out. I also like them for protection spells and warding.
