Make Your Own Full Moon Rose Water

The power and protection of Holy Water blessed by Father in my childhood home, instilled in me the desire to protect my own home... with Moon Water... as blessed by She.

As a young girl, I grew up with a strong Roman Catholic upbringing. One of the practices that had the most influence on me and that I remember clear as day, is when the Priest would come over with a freshly blessed mason jar of Holy Water.

It was always a big day, Lady Lucia would have the house spotless from top to bottom, we would be dressed in the next best thing to our Sunday best, and a big lunch would be prepared for the visit. The Priest would come, we'd sit and watch the adults visit, and then he would walk through the house, Benedictine each room with a dash of Holy Water and a prayer. From there, my mother would put the remaining water on top of one the cupboards until the next year.

Moon Water Magic Making

Here I am so many moons later, still practicing the act of blessing, protecting and praying over my home. Now, instead of the Priest coming over, I invite the Goddess and welcome her to keep my family safe and prosperous. Instead of warding off the Devil, I now look to protect against negative energy... our own, and that which seeps in from the daily aspects of life. Where the water was once Holy, and blessed by the Priest, I enchant Moon Water, adding my own personal touch of magic based on whatever season we are in elementally, spiritually and emotionally as a family.

There is something very therapeutic about preparing my own Moon Water. There is a Divine experience that happens when you open yourself up to taking the time to mix, blend and conjure your own personal blend of protection. For me, stirring the water and adding whatever elements my heart feels called too, connects me to my ancestors, recent and returned to the dusts of time. I never really second guess how much of this or that, as I seem to instinctively know what I need in the way of conjuring up the perfect mix of magic. And when I get it wrong, I take the time to honour my learnings as blessings.

Today, I work with Moon Water for two reasons:

  1. To bless my home with the infinite powers of Goddess Moon, Mother Night

  2. Withdraw, store and hold any negative energy floating around in our home

I try to replace my Moon Water at least twice a year. If I feel compelled to do so more than that, I do. My hope for you is that you'll find a routine that best compliments the flow of magic in your own home.

Generally, I will make a fresh batch of Moon Water with the first big winter snow fall, and typically, I try to make this batch around the Cold Moon, or the December Full Moon. The second batch I try to make is with the first catch of Spring rain, however, because of where I live, this can prove to be challenging. It's up to you how often you want to make a fresh batch, my only recommendation would be that you charge your water under a full moon (or waxing moon at a minimum) in order to heighten its magical powers.

For this particular blend of Moon Water, I wanted to invoke love (red roses), clean out stale and negative energy (Mint Essential Oil) and overall protection and stability (Epsom Salt w/magnesium ~ magically, magnesium promotes stability).

Full Moon Rose Water Ritual

The most important ingredient you're going to need to consider before getting started, is the source of water you're going to use. Here are a few examples of water sources that I've used and recommend:

  • Fresh Snow

  • Rain

  • Fresh water from a flowing source (please be careful when doing so, and have someone with you if collecting from like a river). If you're collecting water from a natural source, please remember to thank Mother Earth for Her gift and protection BEFORE collecting the water.

  • Distilled Water
