Product Details

Alum crystal, also known as alum stone or potash alum, is a mineral salt which has a long history of use across various cultures.

Historically, alum crystals have been used as a mordant, a substance that helps dyes adhere to fabrics. Egyptians used it in their mummification process, and Romans employed it in styptic pencils to stop bleeding, which were still in use up to the 1950’s Alum crystals were also used in the purification of water long before modern filtration systems.

Medicinally, alum crystals have been used as an astringent, a substance that causes tissues to contract. This makes them effective as a natural deodorant, and they can also help soothe irritation after shaving. Alum crystals are still used in some parts of the world as a styptic to stop minor bleeding.

In the realm of the mystical, alum crystals have been used in various magical practices. Some cultures believe they can bring good luck or dispel negativity. They've also been used in rituals for healing and protection.
