What is blessed salt?


#1

I have heard of blessed salt before but have never seen or used any. What is blessed salt used for?


#2

Because of its use since ancient times in the preservation and seasoning of food, salt is a symbol of purification and preservation. Blessed salt can be used by laypeople in much the same manner as holy water, as a means to bless one’s home.
