Salt and pepper are not just good for seasoning food—they’re also used for magickal protection. This is because salt neutralizes negative energy, and pepper acts as a potent guardian against harm. You can prepare this protection spell nearly anywhere and anytime. You will need a plate, some salt and ground pepper, a spoon, and a small pouch.
On a plate, make two equal-size mounds, one of salt and one of pepper. Hover your right hand over the mounds, then start mixing them together with your fingers in a clockwise motion. Push your intention for protection into them as you repeat this phrase:
Salt and pepper, protect me from harm.
Do this for at least three minutes. When you feel they have absorbed your will, use a spoon to gather the powder into the pouch. To use it, take a pinch of the powder with your left fingers and throw it while pushing the protective energy out with your hand. Take a deep breath and walk away.
