Common salt is a mineral with properties that are believed to protect against witchcraft and evil eye. Some people place a salt line around the perimeter of their house to protect it against evil spirits. A simpler way to achieve this is by sprinkling salt near the door of your home as it will prevent evil spirits from entering.

3. Fresh flowers
