Creating a feng shui salt water cure



jenny blume feng shui cure setup.jpgSalt water cures are used extensively in feng shui to soak up negative vibes and harmonise energy.

From February 2018, most north facing homes (and bedrooms located in the north) will benefit from salt water cures, but it also depends on your homes unique ‘flying stars’, which are calculated and explained in my consultations. West facing homes (and bedrooms in the west) might also benefit from salt cures this year.

For best results your salt water cure should be inside your home and be open to the air (ie, not in a closed cupboard), in an out-of-the-way position where it won’t be knocked over.

Start by filling a glass with sea or rock salt until it’s roughly one third full. To protect your furniture, place it on a disposable coaster or mat. Keep in mind, the glass will need to be thrown out next February, in the Chinese NY, so don’t use good ones.

Next, place six Chinese coins on top of the salt – make sure the four Chinese characters are facing upwards – and fill the glass near full with water to activate.

As the water evaporates, top it up. Over time salt will crust around the top – and you’ll know that it’s working well. Above, see one after less than two months!

TIP: Turn your salt water cure into a feature by using a glass vase instead. Anything from a simple round vase to a more ornate style should work well. Just check that it’s stable and secure, and ensure small children or animals can’t drink from it.

Simple salt water cure

Along with traditional salt water cures, I’ve been making cures with sugar or salt shakers (from $2 shops). Glass herb jars can also be used, as long as a small opening is cut into the lid to let air in. If it’s up high, simply use an old glass and don’t bother with a lid.

These salt water cures are simple to make as no special Chinese coins are needed – copper piping can be used instead. I’ve found them to be very effective – the more negative the energy, the faster the salt crust builds up!

Partly fill your jar with rock salt (roughly a third full) then activate with copper and water. Copper pieces can be found in the plumbing section of hardware stores like Bunnings (see image). Place it on top of the salt then fill with tap water. As the water evaporates over the months, simply top it up.

IMPORTANT: Around the Chinese New Year in February, your salt water cure should be wrapped up and thrown away (don’t reuse the glass).
