Florida Water Recipe

Does anyone need a recipe to make their own Florida Water?  Yes?… Well, here it is:

Two cups of vodka or any alcohol of your preference
Two tablespoon of orange flower water
6 drops of essential oil of bergamot
6 drops of essential oil of rosemary
6 drops of essential oil of lavender
6 drops of essential oil of rose attar
3 drops of essential oil of sage
2 drops of essential oil of neroli

Mix all of these ingredients together and let it sit for a couple days.  Note that you can adjust any of the essential oils, strength-wise, to attain a scent that is to your liking.

If there’s anyone reading this who doesn’t know what Florida Water is used for, it’s mainly for cleansing and protection, but there are other uses I’m going to list below.  There is a company who produces a marketable brand of Florida Water, and you can find them online easy. (So I’m going to be lazy and not go searching for it right now.)

Here’s a list of uses for you, but that’s not saying that some of you might not think of a few new ways to use Florida Water:

1. Cleanse your house by adding salt and Florida Water to a bucket of water and mop the floors.
2. Cleanse your magical items and crystals with a cloth and Florida Water.
3. Cleanse your altar and your magical space before casting a circle.
4. Provide it as a thank you gift to the deities or energies you’re working with.
5. Use it in your bath by adding a few drops in the water to cleanse your aura and rejuvenate the senses.
6. Put Florida Water in your palms and clap them to raise vibrations and to give you a quick energy boost.
7. It can be used in your rooms for a Happy Home and to combat melancholy and depression.
8. Florida Water can replace Holy water in magical practices and rituals.
9. Add Florida Water and Van Van oil together in order to attract better clientele.
10. Use it to dress candles for magical spells and rituals for Protection, Communication with Spirits, Cleansing and Breaking Hexes, and to remove malevolent magic.
11. Add a few drops to a bottle of ink and use it to empower your written petitions.

 Bottle #1
Paving the Way for Love

There are so many inspiring magickal tools out there to draw love to you, but I’ve not seen anything created to Pave-the-Way for love.  In order to draw pure genuine love to you, you may need to do some cleansing and clearing of negative energy and negative issues that are baggage from previous relationships or awkward romantic encounters.  This could include something as severe as physical or emotional abuse, as well as irreconcilable differences, or non-compatibility issues.  It all leaves us steeped in a froth of negative energy that needs to be cleared before a new and healthy romantic connection can be made.
Bottle #1, Paving the Way for Love, is the perfect magickal tool for your altar or night-stand.  Hold it, burn a candle beside it, whatever you feel compelled to do to draw negative energies out of your body and away from your spirit.  Center on peace and joy, soul connections, positive energy, and beautiful expectations to draw successful fulfilling Love into your life.
Bottle #2
Protection
Bottle #2, Protection, is created to protect you by each of the four directions, to protect you by the four elements, to protect you from anyone wishing you harm, to protect you physically, mentally, spiritually, to protect you and your body, as well as to protect your space, wherever you might place this bottle.  Bottle #2 is also created to protect you from yourself, because often we are our own worst enemy, held back by low-self esteem, fear, uncertainty, or the opinions of other people.
Bottle #2, Protection, is created to protect you from all outward threats, as well as any personal demons.  This bottle works hard for you.  It guards, holds, and contains all the negative energies that try to harm you.  So give this bottle a cleansing bath by placing it in the light of the full moon on a monthly, or bi-monthly basis.

Note:  My witch’s bottles are unique, each one created especially in the moment for their particular intentions.  There will be similarities to each creation, as well as differences.  Each bottle contains a scroll with magickal written intentions, as well as Sea Salt and a variety of herbs and other items.
The recipe for each individual bottle will depend upon my feelings and instincts while creating it, what type of flowers and herbs are growing in my garden, what bottled herbs I have in my magickal cupboard, as well as ideas that come to me for small items geared to the magick at hand.
This is part of the fun of hand-crafted items…enjoy!
