In magic, salt is undoubtedly best known as an agent of protection. The image of a circle of salt being used as a barrier to dark forces is familiar to many thanks to pop culture.

How should I use my gemstones? Keep them close by, in your pocket, or in a small dish at your work space. Handle them often, as you focus on your needs and wishes. Sleep with them under your pillow. Place them on your altar. Whisper your wishes to them when no one else can hear you. The only thing we do NOT recommend doing is using your gemstones to infuse water that you will be drinking.
