Moon Water – The Top 5 Uses
I started learning about moon water when I did some research on the lunar cycle and how it affects women’s bodies. Strangely enough, my body was making these adjustments on its own, unbeknownst to me, when I started doing in-depth spiritual practice.
Basically, the ancient cultures had practices where the women would gather far away from their village at the time of new moon. This also correlated to all the women having their periods at this time. They would rest and practice rituals that allowed them to connect deeper with the feminine powers of intuition, nature bonding and nurturing.
Full Moon (about two weeks before new moon) correlates to the ovulation cycle of women. Its also a time where you can charge your water under the light of the moon to instil lunar powers into the water.
It’s really simple to do.
A day before the full moon, fill a glass up with water. Leave the glass on a windowsill or if possible outside.
The water will be charged by the energy of the moon.
This water becomes beautifully magical. You can use it in several ways, my favourite ways are:
Make skin care products. We make a rose body mist and face mist with moon water
Water your plants with it. My plants have been growing beautifully (during winter months) from using rose water
Make a tea with it. Especially if you’re an avid tea fan, legend has it if you brew a herbal tea and stir it clockwise, the words you speak over the tea become a powerful spell
Cook with it
Use it to wash your hair. In ancient cultures, hair is believed to be an antennae to the source, what better way to charge up the connection than with moon water!
I just recently learnt that moon water can be made at all phases of the moon. The water will carry different meaning based on when its made
Full Moon – used for blessings, charging crystals and powering spells
New Moon – used for cleansing, new beginnings and resetting something
Waning Moon – used for releasing, reflecting and removing things
Waxing Moon – used to create glow and plan things
