If disharmony, negativity, or darker energies have transpired in a particular environment, salt can be used—in conjunction with garlic, and/or the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram, or by itself—to help “cleanse” the environment of the residual negative energies and negative astral entities in order to return the area to a “neutral vibration.”

According to Ra: “salt absorbs vibrations which have been requested to move into salt when salt has been given water.” Further, those of negative vibration “within the dwelling might find coexistence with your group difficult.”
