Hasami Ware Buddhist Octogan Salt Set

Salt has been a traditional remedy to bad luck in Japan for thousands of years. Salt has a strong purifying power and has been used as a charm since ancient times.

Mori shio has long been used as a Japanese Feng Shui method of guarding the home or business. Salt is put in a pair of small dishes in a mountain shape by the entrance. In Feng Shui, the octagon shape is said to have the power to draw good luck. It is that that by incorporating an octagon in the salt, the effect of the salt is maximized, the overall energy of the house is adjusted, and fortune rises.



Plate: 8 cm

Octagon: 5.5 x 5.5 cm
