Aqua de Florida also doubles as a cleanser for crystals. Some crystals are stronger than others, and accordingly, need to be cleaned more or less frequently. Give your jewelry a regular cleanse with some Aqua de Florida and they will buzz with energy.
I also use Agua de Florida at the start of most of my client sessions: it just helps to bring us into the room and get focused on the healing space we’re co-creating.Or splash it on my hands to clear my energy when I’m working with the Tarot or before I start making my crystal ritual products.
When it comes to the term ‘all purpose,’ nothing beats Agua de Florida. I use it during spiritual house cleansings, when blessing my altar space, as an offering to the ancestors and land spirits, as a spiritual bath, in my floor wash or to purify any space where I’m feeling negative or heavy energy.
Nine different flowers and herbs go into this intoxicating essence. The uplifting fragrance and invigorating zingy citrus aroma awaken the senses, leaving you refreshed and revived. Its key ingredients include – citrus and herbal notes, along with spice and floral undertones of Bergamot, Neroli, Lemon, Clove, Cinnamon, Lavender, Rose, and Orange flower. When first applied, the uplifting citrus notes are most dominant, then the scent of Clove lingers, leaving you with an incredibly appealing dry spice with the fresh zing left hanging in the air!
If you make your own potions, you can always use Agua de Florida as a base instead of spring water. Agua de Florida can be used for almost any positive spiritual purpose and should be on any altar.
There is some debate whether you should use the alcohol based Aqua de Florida or the cologne based Florida Water. Since I was raised in the Surinam Winti tradition I prefer Florida Water but that is solely based on my childhood memories. You should follow your intuition and choose accordingly. Blessings!
