A closely guarded Feng Shui secret until we revealed the formula around seventeen years ago and now copied by everyone although many still use them incorrectly and for this reason I have written this page to clarify yet again as whilst extremely powerful, if used incorrectly they have a very negative effect.

Salt Water Cure

I have personally used salt water cures for nearly thirty years and if set up correctly you can get excellent results and also a fast working cure to combat sickness and bad luck. We use them for the #5 and #2 stars and this year 2018 you would place them in the west and north 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 software as it calculates the flying stars automatically for you amongst many other Feng Shui formulas. In 2018 the #5 and #2 will be located in the west and north palace respectively. With the #2 in the west palace this can cause many problems if cures are not placed, the software will come in handy for 2018 and for the next 6 years as it gives much advice on cures and enhancers.

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:

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

A) 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).

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

A) 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.

Q) I have read that you can use normal coins to place on top of the salt, is this correct? 

A) I have clients who have used normal coins without any positive results, so I would advise using Chinese i-ching coins. The ones we sell are superb quality and come from a good dynasty which is very important. The four Chinese characters should be face up, this is the yang side of the coin.

Salt Water Cure

Q) Why do we use six Chinese i-ching coins? 

A) 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 the cure
without adhering to all of the above.

Q) Do you only use a salt water cure for the annual 2 & 5 stars? 

A) Absolutely not, if you have done a natal chart on your home and know where the fixed #5 & #2 star you should also use them here as this is even more effective at reducing bad luck and sickness. If you do not know how to do a natal chart it maybe worth considering our Feng Shui software as this not only calculates your natal chart for your home or business, it also gives advice on colours, cures and enhancers for every part of your home. The software is now used in every part of the world by Feng Shui Masters, Practitioners, students and enthusiasts; it is our pride and joy. Follow this link for more details software.htm

Q) I have been told not to have water in a bedroom; does this apply to a salt water cure?

A) A very popular question and one that does not apply, a salt water cure is fine in a bedroom and any other room in the home, if you think about it, it is no different to having a glass of water beside your bed each night. This is called a “yin” water cure. The type of water you do not place in a bedroom is a “yang” water cure like an aquarium of water feature with a pump, the water movement makes it yang and this is harmful in a bedroom. So a salt water is needed in a bedroom for the annual stars and also fixed stars as these cause even more problems to health and luck.

Q) How often do I change the salt cure and when should it be placed? 

A) This depends on the amount of negative energy in the home, we have some clients who change there salt cure 3-4 times a year because the build up of crystal around the rim is very large and sometimes up to 4-5 inches and flowing down the sides, they really do look incredible. Other clients change them once a year and always on the Chinese New Year (around February). Although they should be renewed on Chinese New Year they can be set up at any time of the year

Q) What size glass/jar/container should I use? 

A) We use a normal size pint glass that would be used in a pub. If you are from a country that is not familiar with pint size, this is a container around 750cl in volume. I have copied a photo of our new salt cure below to give you an idea. I prefer to use glass containers and I have many clients who use similar size coffee jars with great results, the pint glass I like as it is the perfect size for the top as it is exposed the air (qi).

Q) What will happen if I disturb or knock-over my salt cure? 

A) This is actually quite common and one that you want to try and avoid, having this cure in a building is like having a bee’s nest in your home or business, it will not harm you if left undisturbed but start poking it and disturbing it, it will sting you. If the salt cure is only a few months old it should be okay, but over three months with a lot of crystallisation around the rim you must renew it as you will have disturbed a lot of negative energy. When you place the cure make sure it will not be disturbed for the time it is there. Also be careful when cleaning around the jar, do not get tempted to pick off the crystals on the rim and do not knock it when cleaning.

Q) What other cures can be placed near the salt cure? 

A) It is good to have metal cures close to the slat cure as these will also weaken the negative earth. Good metal cures are a wu lou, six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon, signing bowl etc, if you follow this link you will see more examples of metal cures.

Q) How do I set my salt water cure up?

A)

  1. Fill up a glass jar; with table or rock salt to about three quarters full.
  2. Place six coins on top of the salt in a circle. Make sure the coins are Yang side up; this is the side with the four Chinese characters. Don’t worry if the coins sink into the salt as you pour the water.
  3. Fill the jar to the top with tap water. It would be a good idea to place a mat under the jar to protect furniture or flooring.
  4. The jar will form crystals over time; this shows that it is working to absorb the negative energy.
  5. Make sure the water is always topped up.
  6. Do not cover the top of glass/container.
  7. The salt water cure should not be placed in a cupboard.
  8. Try not to touch or move the jar too much as it stores a lot of negative energy.

Remember to place a sizeable mat under the jar / bowl of the salt solution to protect the table that it is on, because in time, the solution will absorb the negative energy and will crystallise around the top of the jar. If the energy is severe, it might spread all around the surface of the furniture. You may wipe around the surface of the table, but do not touch the rim of the jar / bowl at all. 

Q) How do I dispose of my old salt water cure? 

A) At the end of each Chinese New Year you should throw your old coins, glass and water/salt away. Because they store so much negative energy it is best to place the whole glass into an old Tupperware type container and seal the top and throw straight into the bin. If you do not have a container pour the water down an outside drain (one at the back of house that leads away from the building) and place the salt/glass and coins into a plastic bag and place in bin. Do not recycle the coins or container, you will be guaranteed bad luck if you do so.

Q) I have seen a salt water cure on another website for £55.00 is this better than yours?

A) I was sent the link to this website and many others over the years and they are still selling the same cure which is identical in look to ours although the information they give is very dangerous, we sell the salt cures at a very realistic cost to ensure most people can afford them.

  1. Hi, I have placed water cure 3 weeks ago. In the 1st week nothing formed, I checked the direction again and notice direction a bit out. I adjusted the cure and crystal start forming at the top & bottom of the glass. Do I replace it or leave it till 2018 new year?

    Thank you.

  2. One more question Michael. Can I place the saltwater cure in the south part of my bedroom (My room is located in the SW portion of my apartment. (My apartment door along with my building door faces W around 275 degrees. The reason I ask is because my relatives aren’t as keen to Feng Shui as I am, so I can’t place the cure anywhere I would like. Though I could really use this cure since this year has been the worst year ever for me.

    1. Hi Tony,

      I would not recommend placing the salt water cure in the southwest part of your apartment if you can help it as this will weaken the good earth from the annual #8 star.

      If you are able to, you could place the salt water cure somewhere out of sight such as behind a picture of in a cupboard.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  3. Hi Michael! I love your website! I’m thinking of making one of these cures. I have some I-Ching coins on a red string, (I think 9 coins) as I will not be able to get any other coins soon, is it okay to cut this string of coins to make this cure?
    Also have you heard of any amazing testimonials regarding this cure?

    1. Hi Tony,

      If the coins have not been used before, this will be fine to use them although try to make sure the coins characters look similar to the ones in the image below as these are from a good dynasty.
      https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/salt-water-1.jpg

      Here is a testimonial from one of our customers about their experience with a salt water cure from our testimonial section.

      I have never heard of this cure before in all the feng shui books I have purchased. When I read it on your website, it intrigued me and scared me a bit, especially as a newcomer to feng shui and your website. While waiting for my 2013 Master Cure and Professional Software to arrive, I decided to follow your advice (thank you for giving it out so freely) and put salt-water cures in the Center and SW of my home. Within a week, the cures have crystallized at the rim and continue to do so. So much bad energy being absorbed! It has made me think of all the months of 2013 that I did not have these cures in place! This year, I have been in bed frequently, with extreme tiredness, sometimes for a day or two. At least half of each month was spent in bed. I could not get up to prepare meals or even do any light cleaning. I thought maybe that I just needed to eat better, exercise more, and think more positive. My husband would be besides himself with worry, looking at me helplessly. After implementing these cures, I have felt much better. I have started to get myself back and enjoy things again. If indeed these cures are doing their part to help absorb the bad energy in these sectors, then I’m glad they did. I will be using these cures from now on! Thank you for freely providing advice that helps the public.

  4. Hi,
    I placed salt water cure in Nw and South.since then still no crystal formed.What does it mean?. Do I have to re place again?my north west is the main door south is the sitting has a window.
    Please need your advice
    Meeriyagalla

    1. Hi Chandana,

      Crystalisation is a sign of negative Qi being collected. Have you checked that you have set the cure up properly? 75% roughly filled with salt, coins placed on top of salt and then top up with clean water. Be sure to keep the water topped up without moving the cure.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  5. hi there! i recently threw away my old salt water cure but the new one i’ve placed doesn’t have any crystals even after 2 weeks. Totally unlike my old one which was forming crystals all over. I do believe that my place has loads of negative energy… could there be anything wrong? I used course salt .. which has some impurities, and all i see are bubbles ard the rim.

    1. Hi Lyn,

      It is best to use normal household salt that you would use in cooking. I would recommend replacing the cure and using fine salt.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  6. Hello, thanks for your great article on salt water cures. I have a question though, what if I place the salt and water without any coin? Does it works? Because my FS master told me not to use coin if nothing serious. How true is that? Another question , I am living in a 3 storey house, so I need to place salt on every floor? And lastly, should be place on the table or floor will be do? Many thanks!

    1. Hi Dennis,

      I have personally never heard of that as there would be no metal element present without the coins.

      You only need to place the cures in the most important room over the three levels so for example, if you had a storage room on the ground floor and a bedroom on the first floor in the south, you would place the cure in the bedroom.

      The cure can be placed on the floor if you do not have a table or shelf present but please be sure to place it somewhere that it wont get knocked.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  7. Hello, I have set up my salt water cure after purchasing from your store 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately, I misread and instead of 3/4 glass of table salt I had filled up the glass with 1/3 Sea Salt instead. Is that allright.

    Thanks.

    1. Hi Evon,

      If your cure has began to crystalise, I would leave it where it is. If not, I would carefully remove the coins and set the salt water cure up again.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Patricia,

      The cures can be placed at any part of the the year as of the 3rd February so I would not worry if you are a little late and as the old saying goes, the best time to do something was yesterday; the second best time to do it is now.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  8. Hi, I bought a lot of cures from you (they are still to arrive in the mail in the USA, I’m excited) but I just did my salt water cures for the year of the rooster on my own so I could put them in on the 3rd Feb . The chinese metal coins I had were a bit larger than last year’s so only five fit in a circle and I put the sixth in the center. Is that ok? Or should I do a new salt water cure and get some smaller coins? Thanks for letting me know.
    Leslie

    1. Hi Leslie,

      A salt water cure is best set in a circle although this should not cause a problem.

      If you notice that the cure is not forming, I would replace it.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  9. My home is two stories tall, the #5 & #2 star affects 4 rooms. May I place a cure in each room? That would be a total of 4 independent cures? Thank you , Pamela

    1. Hi Pamela,

      You can place a cure in each room if you like although I usually recommend picking the most used room out of the two levels.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. i live in a townhouse with 3 levels ,where i have to place the cures .may i place on each room or ground floor only.can i put in garage,basement etc

      1. Hi Prabha,

        I would recommend placing the cures across all three levels in the room that is used more in each sector.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

  10. I set up a cure in a well used room per recommendation on another site. It has begun to ceust and get salt creep and i bumped it today while moving the lamp near it. Should i toss and renew it or leave it alone? Newish to feng shui. Thanks.

    1. Hi Wynonah,

      If it was only a small bit that broke off, I would clear it away and leave the cure as it is. If a large part of the cure broke off, I would replace it with a new one.

      The annual Flying stars change on the 3rd February so it might be worth waiting until then to place a new one.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  11. My bed is in the location of annual star 2( the center ). I can’t move my bed to other parts of the condo. Can I place the salt water under my bed?
    Thank you Daniel.

    1. Hi Anne,

      I would not use a salt cure under my bed but i would place some really quality metal and better still, if it is round in shape. A great cure is weight lifters weights that go onto the bar. You should a set of six coins tied with red ribbon close to your bed too and of course a wu lou but avoid the salt cure.
      Kind regards
      Daniel

  12. Hi could you pls help me. Salt water has evaporated and dried up a little. I filled up with water. Just wondering if i could change the salt and re-use the coins and the jar?

    1. Hi Eva,

      You should only reuse the coins and jar if they are under 2 months old, personally i would never reuse them.

      Kind regards
      Daniel

  13. Is it okay to put a small amout of chicken wire around or over one of my salt water cures (still allowing air flow)? The center of our home is the stairs and exposed, only room for a narrow table. I don\’t want our young pets tempted to drink it either.

    Many thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Rebecca,

      You can put a bit of Chicken wire around the Salt Water Cure although I would recommending installing a small shelf and placing it on there if possible.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. A floating shelf, brilliant. I currently have it on a round, metal, plant stand, but I like the shelf idea better. Less chance of getting knocked. Thank you.

    1. Hi Pillai,

      I would recommend replacing the Cure as a Salt Water Cure stores a great deal of negative energy and should only be disturbed when adding water or disposing of the Cure.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  14. We are moving but I already have my cure set up. When we get ready to move do I throw it away and set up new one in new place?

    1. Hi Christina,

      If you have already set up your Salt Water Cure, I would recommend replacing as they store a lot of negative energy and should not be disturbed until they are disposed of.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  15. what is the best way to clean a jar that is overflown by salt. Can i add water if it\’s dry. is it safe placing it under a table to avoid knocking the jar and it\’s in the south part of the house. is it ok to throw the jar and replace it without waiting for the new year.

    1. Hi, you must never try and clean the jar and if it has grown very large i would replace it as they store a lot of negative energy and ca cause problems when disturbed. You must keep them topped up with water. Personally i throw mine away when too large and replace with a new jar, salt and coins. Hope this helps

  16. I placed the salt water cure a week or 2 ago and now we\’ve been approved for a new apartment (flat?). How do I go about moving it about without any problems?

  17. i have this salt cure on top of my dining table…what is the best part of the house that you could recommend this 2016…and do i need to get another salt cure this time i have no chinese coin to put in…from my understanding it will be next new year i can discard the salt cure i did this year

    1. Hi,

      The Salt Water Cures should be placed where the Annual #2 and #5 Flying Stars are which is in the south and centre for 2016. You would keep these in place until they either grow too much to manage or until the end of the Chinese New Year (3rd February 2017).

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  18. Hi,

    Placed salt water cure in Southeast and the Centre on New Year\’s Day , is it possible for me to replace it and do I have to throw the old ones. There are crystal built up but not much. Thank you Den

    1. Hi Den,

      I would not personally recommend it although if you feel it has barely formed, it may be OK.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Bea,

      Yes, you can leave the jar for the year. The only exception is if the Cure is knocked and breaks or if it becomes too overgrown.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  19. Hello, Can I place the salt water cure on top of a fridge or kitchen cabinet? #2 star is in the kitchen area this year, and also I already place a salt water cure near the main door where the #5 star is. Thank you

  20. hi, I unintentionally touch a fund shui frame, the owner says I should not touch it because this will transfer the negative energy and I might get sick, I really don\’t have the intention of holding it it was just I am always fascinated by frames that it very uncommon.

  21. Hi, I have been using salt cure in 2 segments of my home since 2014. After reading your article, and referring to my home chart, the segments we are place our cures are different from your prescribed #2 & #5 segments. Is it a must to place them in #2 & #5? Or does it depend on the year when the chart is determined? Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Patrick,

      I would personally place them where the #2 & #5 stars are for both the fixed Flying Star Chart and the Annual Stars and this is something that I do in my home.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  22. Hi,

    Is it ok to use something to flip the coins over if they get turned upside down when I pour the water in? I did that last year and had some pretty bad luck. Just wondering what to do if it happens this year.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Lisa,

      I would not recommend it although if you do, please be very gentle as to not break any of the build up around the top.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Liz,

      I would not recommend it if there is any chance of it getting knocked. If it will be safe and avoid being disturbed, it will be fine.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi,

      I would not recommend it if there is any chance of it getting knocked. If it will be safe and avoid being disturbed, it will be fine.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  23. Hello,

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Can you please advise me on how to clean up some salt water crystal that had somehow spilled over onto my floor outside the mat I have placed the cure on?

    Thank you for your advice.

    1. Hi Joan,

      The best thing you can do is to use a cloth and carefully mop up the excess salt and water and once the area is clear, you will then be able to hoover up around the area. This happens to quite a lot of people I know so do not worry about it too much 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  24. I bought two salt water cures from your website and set them up more than three weeks ago. I followed the instructions and I used a jam jar for it. To this day, I have seen no crystallization at all. Also, the water didn\’t seem to evaporate at all even though it is very cold here and we still have the furnace on in the house which usually dries things up fast. What could be wrong with my salt water cure?

    1. Hi Mei-Wun,

      Please do not worry as this is a very good sign; the Salt Water Cures absorb any negative Qi and obviously, if there is no crystallization, there is very little negative Qi in the area that the Salt Water Cure is placed. I would keep this up and monitor results but this is very normal for some people.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  25. Hi as I read on other website that 6 real copper coins, best is to choose the ones that have a royalty on it like the Queen, are also effective like that of 6 chinese coins, is it true??

    1. Hi Pia,

      I would not personally recommend this as this will not have any effect. It is always best to use Chinese I-Ching Coins and make sure they come from a good dynasty as this plays an important part in the Cure.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel
