SALTPETER

Potassium nitrate (and Sodium nitrate)

Saltpeter is a natural mineral with many uses in commerce and in magic. It is employed to preserve foods, to make powdered incense burn more evenly, and as an ingredient in Gunpowder (which is Saltpeter, Charcoal, and Sulphur.) It also has a reputation for diminishing the male sex drive when ingested, although this is not backed by scientific evidence.

Magically speaking, Saltpeter has a long, long, long history in hoodoo as an agent of magical protection in spritual baths and floor washes and as a shoe-sprinkle. Also, because it is an ingredient in Gunpowder, it is used in formula which are hoped to produce quick (“explosive”) action, such as Block-Buster. In this capacity, it can be an ingredient in love spells or money spells where fast action is required. (There are also certain “explosive” spells that call for Gunpowder as an ingredient, and if you can’t find gunpowder locally, you can use Saltpeter, Sulphur, and Charcoal to mix up your own Gunpowder for use in such spells.)

Here are three recipes using Saltpeter in its protective capacity:

PROTECTIVE SALTPETER SHOE SPRINKLE:

To shield yourself where you walk (in case folks have thrown for you), sprinkle a mix of three ingredients in your shoe. According to who tells you a recipe, the three ingredients will be any three of the following four:

Salt
Saltpeter
Red Pepper
Black Pepper

PROTECTIVE AND CLEANSING SALTPETER BATH:

To take off jinxes and to protect yourself from attacks, pick three ingredients out of the following list and put a little in your bath water:

Salt
Saltpeter
Epsom Salts
Buffalo Ammonia
Blueing

PROTECTIVE SALTPETER FLOOR WASH:

To a bucket of warm water, add the following ingredients:

Salt
Saltpeter
Your own first Urine of the day

Prepare this floor wash in complete silence, not talking to anyone from the time you rise until the time you complete the job. Scrub, mop, or brush from the doorway outward to the sidewalk, to keep off all evil.
