Does salt actually have some sort of power over ghosts and spirits? If not then how and where did we get the idea?
Spreading or sprinkling salt to ward off ghosts or bad spirits seems to be a common practice around the world. Why is it so widespread a belief?
Oh and one more question – Does the form of the salt make any difference? Is rock salt the same as Morton’s iodized?
I thought I would post a question of my own. I am interested in seeing the replies because this is something I have always wondered about and had a bit of a problem with believing.
