What the F is Florida Water? Florida meaning flowery, not the state. If your familiar with Beyonce then you may know Solange who sported a bottle of the sacred water to the 2018 Met Gala. No doubt the event needed some cleansing! Although Solange brought Florida Water to the mainstream this potion is nothing new, it's origins go way back.
To keep it simple, herbs like Sage, Cinnamon, Bergamot, Orange & Lavender have been used in ancient Shamanic, Wiccan & Hoodoo rituals before "Florida Water" was named. The ingredients along with Vodka (spirits) create Florida Water which is essentially a potion for protection, cleansing and rituals. Florida Water is something like Holy Water in a sense. Think liquid Sage with way more magical properties!
The commercial brand by Murray & Lanman crafted in 1808 claiming to cure headaches, fevers & colds. The base ingredient was alcohol with essential oils and a little dye for commercial sake. Back in the day lavender was the main fragrance but Agua de Florida (Florida Water) now contains bergamot, neroli, lemon, cloves, cinnamon, rose and orange flower.
There is a tangible magic found in homemade, naturally produced Florida Water that you won't find in synthetic mass produced brands. The potency of organic herbs, flowers, fruits & essential oils is beyond comparison. Put together with the intention of the preparer and amplifiers like using the Moon's Lunar energy or adding crystals you have a powerful spiritual tool!
The scent of commercial Florida Water is a blend of citrusy sweet orange with spicy notes of clove & lavender. I have my own sacred recipe given to me by my Spirit Guides that ties in a variety of essential oils, citrus, herbs & flowers in an alcohol base made under the Full Moon infused with Rainbow Moonstone. The aroma is divine! A floral undertone, hints of citrus & cinnamon. My blend gives a sense of protection that does not come from the ingredients alone. My power, Lunar energy & Moonstone bring an energy to Clair Water (my Florida Water) that raises frequencies and clears spiritual stank! Follow this link to get you some!
Within Nature based faiths Florida Water is used for cleansing and protecting oneself and one's space. Known as the "baking soda" of Paganism. Florida Water is an essential for anyone practicing anything to do with the Spirit self or Spirit world.
