The ritual area, participants and tools are often cleansed by asperging with water at the start of a ritual or as part of a ritual. Often salt is added to the water, either to make it more closely resemble seawater, or the waters of the womb, or to blend the energies of earth with those of water. The elemental weapon of Water is the cup or chalice. In Wiccan tradition the Element of Water may be called in association with the Watchtower of the West.
