Kiyome-shio, or purification salt, was one of the most important parts of a funeral. The mourner was sprinkled with salt exorcising any evil spirits. It was seawater salt and it was carried by most Kitsu at all times. The salt feeded the body during the Matsugo no mizu, cleaned and purified the body and blessed the house and its visitors. [1]
