Hey Everyone

Hey Everyone,

Just a reminder that we have a SUPER MOON (the technical term for this moon is called Perigee-Syzygy) coming up on the 18 of this month (April 18, 2011). In a nutshell a SUPER MOON is when the moon is closer to the earth than usual. It influence is felt three days before and three days after the date. Get your Lunar Spells for money, employment or whatever ready. Also, this is a great time to create some really strong energized floral waters for all kinds of magical/spiritual needs.

Homemade Floral Waters

Floral Waters
Floral waters will not have a very long shelf life if an alcohol is not added to them. Floral waters made only with water and not the added alcohol will grow mold and collect germs and bacteria. The alcohol acts as a preservative and therefore will have an indefinite shelf life. The alcohol also works to preserve the scent of the floral water.

The base liquid for all floral water is the same. This is made by adding an equal mixture of distilled water and vodka. Alternatively, you can use ethyl alcohol instead of vodka. By far the vodka is cheaper and won’t leave your floral waters smelling like booze. If you choose to use vodka (my preference) select one that is at least 60 proof, no less.

Basically, you are making a weak tincture. You can make your floral water with one single herb or flower or a combination. The size of the jar you make your floral water in decides how much fragrant water you will get in the end. If you just want a small amount use a small jar. For larger amounts use a bigger jar. Select your herbs or flowers and place them in a glass jar, one that has a screw on lid. Fill the jar halfway with your selected plant material. Fill the jar with the liquid, leaving about one inch of room at the top of the jar for shaking.

Now you will have to allow the contents to blend and the natural oils and fragrance of the plant material to be released. Shake the jar daily. The floral water is ready when it reaches your desired level of fragrance. Once it’s ready, strain out the plant material and store the liquid in its final storage bottle. Some people like to place the jar in a cool, dark place for several days. I prefer to set the jar outdoors in the sun. The option is yours. I find that the sun extracts more of the oil from the plant and the water picks up the fragrance much more quickly. Again, this is just my preference.
