After reading about salt water cures quite a number of years ago, like any good consultant I had to test and experiment with them prior to recommending them to my clients. There are several different ways to set up salt water cures including having them covered however I have found the set up below to be the most effective. Now I should point out that Salt Water cures are not for everyone, if you have small children or animals that stay inside the home they may be unsuitable and the reason for this is that you don’t want to disturb them once set up. Also some people just don’t like the look of them, whilst others love seeing them develop over time – See the picture below of the salt water cures that I just replaced from my home.


I would also like to thank Michael Hanna who has given me permission to re-produce the majority of this information as I don’t see the point in trying to re-invent the wheel.

Set up correctly you can get excellent results and also a fast working cure to combat sickness and bad luck. I use them for the #5 and #2 stars and this year 2016 you would place them in the Centre and North East but you should also use them on your fixed flying star if you have done your own natal chart. If not, it may be worth considering our fantastic value Remote Consultation as this will give you a comprehensive report individually tailored to your own home incorporating the flying star method.

In traditional Feng Shui you do not have to cure every part of the home, if your #2 or #5 star fall in a bathroom, cloakroom, utility or any other less important room you do not really need a salt cure. If it falls in a bedroom, lounge, office or other room that you spend time in you need to set a cure up.

Frequently asked questions:

What element does a salt water cure represent?

Whenever you are recommended something relating to Feng Shui there should always be a reason why and please don’t ever be afraid to ask. There should be an explanation that you are comfortable with and that makes sense. In regards to what element a salt water cure represents, I have done quite a bit of research and the one reason I find makes sense to me is: the salt water cure is made up of metal coins with salt and enough water to create oxidization. This oxidization creates a metal element and it is the chemical reaction with which the outcome is metal Qi. The metal Qi is of course used to exhaust and therefore weaken the challenging earth Qi of the #5 and #2 flying stars.

Can the salt water cure be covered or placed in a cupboard?

No, it must be exposed to the air (qi) otherwise it will not absorb the negative energy, many people place them in cupboards and wonder why the crystal formation is not high, it is because it is not working. Place it in an open area where it is exposed to the air (qi).

I really do not want my partner or visitors to my home or business to see the cure, what can you recommend?

I have many clients who require cures to be discreet and as I always say you do not need to have your home or business looking like a Chinese restaurant to have good Feng Shui. I would suggest placing the salt water cure on a cupboard/shelf and then placing a photo frame or similar in front of it to hide it, as long as the top of the jar/glass is exposed to the air that is fine. Make sure that you regularly check the salt water cure as it may need to be topped up with water, especially in the summer months.

Why do we use six Chinese I-ching coins?

Because six is the Trigram for Chi’en and this is a metal element and weakens the negative earth of the #5 & #2 stars. This is the same reason we use six Chinese coins tied in a row and a six hollow metal rod wind chime. These are the parts of the formula that other Practitioners do not know about and why so many websites just try and sell th
