What is Salt Cure?
The three main ingredients for salt cure are salt, water, and metal.
Salt is believed to have the ability to absorb and transmute negative energies. This belief has dated back thousands and thousands of years ago and still is practiced today to reverse bad luck, hit the devil’s evil, repel negative energies, and used in holy water.
Metal is used as a conductor. There are different types of metal that conducts better than others, but in this case, keep it simple and use whatever metal coins or rings in hand.
Water, especially impurity water, is also used as a conductor. The large surface at the top touches the air can absorb the negative or challenging energies from the air. And it also helps transmute negative energies from the salt into crystals.
So basically, some kind of chemical reaction happens between salt, water, and metal.
How To Make Salt Cure
1. Fill the glass jar with course sea salt. 3/4 full.
2. Add six coins or washers.
4. Add water.
What Are Salt Cure Used For?
It is believed that salt cures can be used for depression, illnesses, arguments, negative energies, and ghost energies.
At this point of my life, I’ve only used salt cures to balance challenging feng shui energies. And I do not recommend relying on salt cures for depression, illnesses, or arguments. Please seek professional help in those areas.
When to Dispose Salt Cure?
There is no timeline on when to dispose salt cures because it depends on how much crystals are formed around the brim of the glass. It could take weeks, months, or even over a year to form enough crystallizations before disposing.
The crystallizations depends on the negative energies in the area, how the area has been properly feng shui, weather, or other factors.
Because the timeline is unknown and depend on the area, it is best to check on salt cures on a monthly basis.
Where to Place Salt Cure
Most schools of feng shui like to use salt cures on the #2 and #5 flying star energies. My school of feng shui use salt cures mainly on the #5 and #7, and some #3 and some #2 flying star energies.
And so, on an annual feng shui energy level, place salt cures in #5 in the center, #7 in the west, and maybe #3 in the east and maybe #2 in the southwest of the home or business for 2022.
It is best to also place salt cure based on the permanent feng shui energy because that is the main characteristic energy of the home, office, or space. Basically, permanent energy is the DNA of the home, office, or space.
The yearly feng shui energies changes the mood in that space for the year. And the monthly feng shui energy also changes the energy in that space on another level.
Example of Where to Place Salt Cure in a Home
If I was to look at only the annual feng shui energy level, I will most likely add four salt cure jars for the below home/example.
If I was to look at only the permanent feng shui energy level, I will most likely add four salt cure jars for the below home/example too.
And so, between the annual and permanent feng shui energy levels, I will most likely make a total of eight salt cure jars for this home.
To Only Feng Shui with Salt Cure
It is not advisable to rely only on salt cure to feng shui a space. If the space is not properly feng shui, the salt cures will crust more and will need to change out more frequently.
Changing them out more frequently cost more and there is more chances to get afflicted by handling jugs full of negative energies.
It is best to properly feng shui the home, office, or space to reduce crystallization so that the salt cure can stay out for as long as it can.

One of my supporter asked, “how to enlighten bad energy areas besides using curing salt?”
First of all, I would like to take this moment to congratulate and personally thank this individual for using such a powerful and accurate word, “enlighten.” Feng Shui practitioners tend to use the term “remedy.” When we remedy bad feng shui energy, we are trying to fix it, treat it, and make it right. But this person actually used the proper term. Especially when she asked “how to enlighten,” I envision a growing light, increasing positive energy, and accepting the other kind of energy.
What is bad? Google defined bad as “of poor quality or a low standard. Not such as to be hoped for or desired; unpleasant or unwelcome.”
So my definition of bad could be different from your definition because my low standard could be different from your low standard.
One of the main principals of Feng Shui and other Chinese metaphysics is yin-yang. It’s a symbol, principal, or concept that states that the universe (everything) is complex but complementary, interconnected, and interdependent by light and dark, positive and negative, masculine and feminine, heaven and earth, and so on. Thus, we cannot fix or treat or make rights of “bad” energies because we cannot live without one or the other. We can only help, assist, or shed light (or dim) energies that we find unfavorable. We can only balance and complement what we have.
So to balance and complement flying star energies, we have to figure out what is important for us at this moment: health and relationship or wealth and s
Then we take a look at flying star energies. A Luo Shu to be exact. A Lou Shu has 9 numbers and each number is connected to different aspect of life. Each number has countless layer of meanings. And each number has a yin (positive) and a yang (negative) traits. And since we’re talking about balancing and complementing energies, we want to take a look at one layer, the five elements.
Each number of a Luo Shu represents one of the five elements: fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. Each element supports, reduces, or destroys another element. Let’s take a look at the number five. Feng shui practitioners like to talk about the number 5, also known as 5 Yellow, because “it’s evil” and “very harmful,” which it is. It can cause huge financial loss, severe illnesses and accidents, and obstacles in success and relationships. And it does have a small positive trait that no one seems to talk about. And that is sudden wealth. But the chances of sudden wealth is close to none.
Other flying stars we need to look out for are 2, 3, and 7. Take a look at what elements they are, and what is needed to reduce their negative impacts. Remember to use opposing element, not destructive.
This year, the 5 Yellow is in southeast. Although southeast has this severe illness and catastrophe energies, it doesn’t mean that we place a bunch of metal elements into that area too. We still have to look at the different levels of energies and how they react to one another.
I did a recent Facebook live about my money corner. Although the annual and monthly energies are auspicious in that corner, those auspicious energies combined with my permanent energies caused violence and anger energies. So I had to cut back on activating my wealth corner because I chose peace over wealth.
Behind the Scene
Let's look at this combination: the 7 and 5. With flying star Feng Shui, it's a lot more complex with multiple layers than this. But for the sake simplicity, we are only looking at 7 and 5.
The number 7 (aka 7 Robbery Star) is a metal element. And the number 5 (aka 5 Yellow) is an earth element. Both 7 and 5 have negative attributes. They are both unfavorable energies.
What do we do if these these two stars fly into our room or the area?
We want to stay away from using fire and wood elements because fire destroys the 7 metal and wood destroys the 5, earth. Again, we want to strive for harmony, not destructive.
This is where we have to pick and choose our battle. How do we reduce these two energies without using destructive elements so that we can live in harmony and absorbs the auspicious energies?
There are two ways to reduce these energies:
1.) Leave the two energies alone. Depending on our heaven luck, mankind luck, and earth luck, the reaction and end results may vary:
A.) The 7 metal gets exhausted by reducing the 5 earth, leaving us some 5 earth energy.
B.) The 5 earth gets exhausted by supporting the 7 metal, leaving us more 7 metal energy.
C.) Nothing happens. And we get to absorb both 5 earth and 7 metal equally.
2.) Add water element into the room to reduces the 7 metal energy. Depending on our heaven luck, mankind luck, and earth luck, the reaction and end results may vary:
A.) The 7 metal gets exhausted by reducing the 5 earth, leaving us some 5 earth energy.
B.) The 5 earth gets exhausted by supporting the 7 metal, leaving more 7 metal energy. But since we have a physical element in the room, the 7 metal continuously gets reduced, leaving us some or little 7 metal energy.
C.) After the water element reduces the 7 metal, we get some 7 metal and all 5 earth energy.
This is why most Feng Shui consultations place water or blue into a room or an area that has a 7 and a 5.
Either way, there will be some challenging energies left for us to absorb.
And this is where salt cure comes in.
Salt cure is a tool made up of salt, water, and metal. Salt has the ability to absorb negative energies. With the help of water and metal, salt transmutes or changes negative energies into crystals. These crystals form out and around the container so touching it with bare hands will have negative impact on who ever touches it. This is where I understand why the individual wanted to opt out salt cure. Salt cure has to be handled meticulously. And it is not favorable around pets and children.
We can opt out salt cure and leave the challenging energies up to our heaven luck, mankind luck, and earth luck.
Good luck, and may you and your family yin-yang and prosper.
