10 grains of Natron
« on: August 16, 2020, 11:48:14 pm »
Em Hotep *henu*
For the ritual cleanse, how much is 10 grains of Natron? I've made natron previously but I ground it to a fine powder. Is there a rough size for natron to be for these grains or is there an equivalent measurement?
Thank you and Senebty

What I do to keep the symbolism is take a pinch and rub my fingers together five times, letting the natron drizzle out, and then do it again so I have the 2 x 5. But yes, counting out tiny grains isn't necessary. ^_^

If our natron is in large, hard chunks (like mine is, because I laid it too thickly in the baking pan), should we still count out the ten grains?

(I mean, I've since broken it down into the corn-kernel size, but.... it's very dense.)

Em Hotep Bear,

you would use way too much natron if you used 10 large chuncks of natron.
Remember, it is mostly salt. it has a dehydrating effect on the skin.
And washing your mouth with basically salt-water is not that great either.
if you insist you could totally count 10 grains of natron, but as said before, it isn't necessary  :-)

many people use a mortar to break down their natron bits, some even create natron powder, which is fine.
