Genshin Impact salt is a cooking ingredient that can’t be obtained from the wild. That’s quite unusual, but not to worry: it’s actually pretty easy to fill up your inventory with a large stack of salt in no time.

Here’s every salt location in Genshin Impact. In case you want to know all it’s uses, we’ll also list every salt recipe in the game below.

The only way to get salt in Genshin Impact is by buying it from food shops. You’ll find three of these ingredient stores in the game (one in every region). We’ll take a closer look at the salt locations below.

The salt supply is the same for every shop: you can buy up to 100 a day, so 300 in total if you visit every store owner. The supply refreshes daily. The usual price is also the same: 60 Mora per stack of salt, so 6.000 if you buy the store’s full stack.

However, if you’re Reputation level in that region is at least four, you’ll get the Merchant Discount. Instead of 60, one stack of Salt costs 50 Mora. If you’ve unlocked this discount in one or more Genshin Impact regions, that’s the best place to buy your salt.

As mentioned, there are only three stores selling salt in Genshin Impact. Unfortunately, none of them has an icon displayed on the map, so it can be difficult to find them. Use the picture and the locations descriptions to get your salt:

  • Shopkeeper Blanche in Mondstadt. From the Teleport Waypoint, go down the stairs. You’ll see the crafting table in this area (it has an icon on the map). Blanche has her shop right next to it.
  • Shopkeeper Dongsheng in Liyue Harbor. Use the southernmost teleport Waypoint in the city, then turn to your right. You see two food vendors here; the one you need for the salt is the one on the right: Dongsheng.
  • Shopkeeper Aoi in Inazuma City. Fast travel to the Teleport Waypoint in the southern part of the city. You’ll see shopkeeper Aoi on your right, just a few paces away.
