What is Florida Water?

Florida water is a cologne type water used for spiritual and magickal purposes in the Americas (originally used and created by Caribbean and African descendants).  The name comes from the flowery tones of the scent as well as references to The Fountain of Youth which is rumoured to be located in Florida.

It is used to clean, purify, heal, protect, banish negativity, break hexes, as offerings to the spirits of the dead and as a base of scrying water.

  1. I love seeing all the individual recipes for florida water. I’m currently concocting a recipe that uses Australian bush flowers and essential oils.

    • Thanks the above recipe is inspired by Hekate as I was in shrine when I created it and this full moon I was playing around with another one which contained crystal elixirs.

      Good luck with your Australiancentric blend I look forward to seeing it if you are sharing 😀

      • I might share what I have so far! The recipe was developed from doing a course in Australian Bush Flower essences and correspondences I’ve gleaned via those studies.

        I’ll be going to a indigenous flower tour at the botanical gardens at the end of the month, so the recipe may get tweaked.
