8 Magical Waters: How to Make & Use Moon Water, Sun Water, and More

Water is cleansing, quenching, and enchanting. It carries the vibrations of the ocean and the moon. There are many different kinds of magical waters you can make and use in your craft. Here’s how to make moon water, sun water, rose water and more! We also give you tips on how to use magical waters and cast water magic spells.

1. Moon Water Moon water is as the name suggests: water that’s been charged by the moon. This type of magical water is especially useful to witches for spells, rituals, sabbats, cleansing, and more. Timing of Moon Water (Blue Moon Water, Blood Moon Water, Etc.) Depending on which moon phase the moon water is made will give it certain magical powers. For example, if you make full moon water, magical properties include love, protection, and abundance. You can also choose a special full moon to make your moon water (i.e. blue moon water, blood moon water, lunar eclipses, etc.) And keep in mind the astrological sign the moon is in while making moon water. For example, a waxing moon in Taurus will carry different properties than moon water made under a waning moon in Pisces, etc. How to make moon water:

What You’ll Need: 1. a silver bowl (you can find these at thrift stores!) 2. air-tight jar or bottle 3. water Instructions: 1. Fill the silver bowl with water. 2. Set it outside or in a window where the moonlight will touch it. 3. Leave it to charge in the moonlight over-night. 4. Bottle the moon water before the sunlight touches it. 5. Label it and keep on your altar. Moon water has many magical uses. Use it to bless your magical tools and altar. Anoint your third eye with moon water to invite psychic visions and dreams. Add a splash to your magical baths. Pour it back into a silver bowl and scry. Use in various water magic spells to represent the moon, ocean, emotions, intuition, the goddess, etc. NOTE: It’s not recommended to drink moon water, as bacteria can collect on water that’s lukewarm/tepid in temperature.

2. Sun Water Sun water is water that’s been charged by the sun. It’s the same concept as moon water. Make sun water by leaving water in a bowl or jar to charge in the sunlight one full day. Bring it in at sunset or before the moonlight touches it. Uses for sun water include: charging tools and altars for sun gods, giving any spell or ritual a boost of energy, to help “grow” an intention, to cleanse a space or object. Its also very helpful in healing rituals.

3. Storm Water Storm water is water that’s been collected from a thunderstorm. This magical water has been charged with all the powerful energy of the storm from which it came. The lightning, thunder, wind, and barometric pressure have all added their energy to the storm water. Collect in a pitcher or jar. Then label and use to super-charge your water magic spells.

4. Snow Water Snow water is water that was collected in snow form that has melted. Many witches collect a bit of snow from the first snow of the season, then store it in a jar to use throughout the year. It has all the magical properties of the element of water, with the added properties of ice. It can be used to “chill” out a chaotic situation or angry person. Bathe in it to cleanse negative vibrations and bring peace to yourself. Snow water is a magical water that also holds transformation properties (i.e. water has been transformed into a solid form, then back again).

5. Rose Water: Magical Love Water A magical water that’s been infused with the essence of roses is called rose water. Rose water is popular in many magickal traditions including hoodoo and has been used as medicinal headache relief in years past. There are different ways to make rose water, but the more traditional involves infusing the rose essence into water via heat.

Magical Uses for Rose Water Roses are ruled by Venus and are beloved to many gods and goddesses of love. Therefore, use rose water in water magic spells for love. Pour into the bathtub to attract love into your life. Infuse rose water into perfumes, hair sprays, soaps, and more! Some people use it in their baking and teas. Rose water is also useful in psychic and protection spells.

6. Florida Water Florida water is a magical water that’s not an actual water, but a combination of essential oils mixed with a solvent. It originates in Florida and was inspired by the fabled Fountain of Youth which was supposedly located somewhere in the state. It’s been used as a perfume and cleanser for centuries, but magical people have caught onto its cleansing power. Bathe in Florida Water on a New Moon to cleanse away negativity. Anoint your altar and tools with it. Bless your home. This magical water is available for purchase at Walmart and online in the form of sprays and soaps.

7. Holy Water: Magical Water for Purifying Holy water has different definitions depending on the religion and individual. In Catholicism, holy water is a magical water that’s been blessed by a religious official. Its used in baptisms and spiritual cleansing. Holy water in witchcraft means any water charged with pure magical intent. Holy water is used in witchcraft to cleanse and consecrate tools and your own energy, in baths, sprays and home cleansing rituals. It is charged with pure divine energy and therefore carries healing, purifying, and strengthening powers.

How to make holy water without a priest: Ingredients: a glass or bowl water from a natural running source (spring, river, creek) salt jar or bottle for storage Instructions:

1. Add the water to the bowl or glass. 2. Add a pinch of salt to the water and visualize the salt acting as a mega-cleanser. It is purifying the water of all impurities. 3. Over the bowl of water, draw a symbol of divine power (i.e. cross, triquetra, runes, sacred geometric symbol, infinity symbol, reiki symbol etc.) using your finger or wand. Draw it at least three times and up to nine times. 4. While you draw the symbol, visualize the water becoming a source of divine energy. See it glowing with pure white light. You can also say words of power here: i.e. The Divine Blesses This Water With White Light, etc. 5. Bottle and label it.

War Water Similar to Florida water, war water is popular in the Hoodoo folk magic tradition in the American South. War water is used to send someone far away, to essentially end a “war”, so to speak (or begin one). Traditionally, the war water is made by placing nails, spanish moss, and water in a bottle then allowing it to sit for a few weeks. The nails will rust and the war water will turn a red or murky color. Then the practitioner throws it at a person’s door, porch or property. The jar breaks to release the war water’s magick.
