It was in May during the Annual Met Gala when our favorite spiritually in-tuned and super talented sistah, Solange, WoWed us. She rocked an Iris Van Herpen original complete with latex thigh high boots, making fans and fashionistas alike the fave for the Catholicism themed event. Oddly, it was her accessory that made as much noise as her designer dress.
Spiritual strategists, energy healers, new age enthusiasts, and brujas were already hipped to the bottle of Florida Water she carried in her unique bag. We’re also not new to this amazing stuff, which some of us call “liquid sage”. Its strong magical properties have made it a staple in Hoodoo, Voodoo, Santeria and Wicca practices. The Murray and Lamman product have been around for generations since its establishment in 1808. It has a wonderful light floral scent with lemon overtones that both men and women can appreciate. However, it leaves a lot of people new to Florida water wondering how to use it.
There are many spiritual benefits to Florida Water:
- Apply to your bath for spiritual bathing
- Create a spray bottle with it and use it for blocking yourself from absorption of others’ negative energy. You can also use it to clear negative energy from your sacred space
- Clean your altar with it
- Apply to forehead for headache relief
- Apply to the bottom of the feet for grounding
Florida Water can also be used to help ease aching muscles and soften one’s skin before and after shaving. When suffering from sunburns and bug bites, dabbing a small amount of Florida Water on the affected spot can offer relief. The invigorating citrus aroma of Florida Water makes it an excellent perfume or cologne. Its cooling properties are excellent for those in warm climates.
Warning: Florida water is flammable, so keep it away from open flames. For external use only, so do not ingest. Keep out of reach of children.
