Thanks to the internet and our awareness, we all know that too much of salt in food is not good for our health. But did you know that according to Vastu shastra, the ancient philosophy of architecture, salt is actually good for the healthy environment of our homes? Salt has the power to absorb the negative energy from home, body and soul. However, an excess of anything is bad. If salt has the power to absorb the negative energy, then too much of it can have an adverse effect too. Today we have come up with the positive and negative effects of salt according to Vastu. Have a look and reap the most benefit out of this humble element.

​An interesting fact

Rock salt Vastu tips also recommend being careful about the usage. If salt has the power to cleanse the space of negativity, then it can also spread the negative energy around. This can easily be avoided. Limit the use of salt. Only a small amount of salt is sufficient. Make sure to change the salt regularly. Also once you have used the salt, drain it under running water.
