For those of you who still scoff at the idea that there are people who truly believe in the Tokoloshe, consider this new product that has started popping up on shelves in South Africa: salt designed specifically to help you tame a Tokoloshe, even if that Tokoloshe is literally hiding out inside you.
According to South Africa’s News24, this Tokoloshe Salt is not really new. It popped up in the 1950s and was said to be able to not only help you ward off a Tokoloshe attack by simply hurling the salt at the creature, but that by ingesting just a small portion of the salt, you could control a Tokoloshe that might be lurking inside your very body. The salt was very popular for a short period of time, so much so that it was available in a variety of colors. Its popularity waned, though, to the point where potential buyers would only occasionally come across a dusty bag of it sitting on a shelf.
All that has changed in recent times, however, with reports of Tokoloshe Salt once again being in high demand. Shopkeepers have reported not only more and more people asking for it, but also their ordering more stock in order to keep up with that demand.
This all leads to one conclusion: real or not, there are certainly a lot of people out there who believe in the power of the Tokoloshe.
