One of the readers at the fair where I work gave me the gift of a bottle of Florida Water Cologne.
It has a beautiful sent of cinnamon, oranges and florals.
It is sold in the grocery store in the Mexican food section usually next to the big Sacred Heart, Jesus, Mary candles.
My friend uses this water to cleanse negative energy.
He puts it in a little squirt bottle and sprays it when and where he needs it, to cleanse his area, cards, crystals, ect.
He is Hispanic and he says that although it was developed as a cologne many years ago it has developed the reputation of being a very powerful cleanser for negative energy.

I was just wondering if anyone else has heard of Florida Water.
Or if you use it.
I truly love the smell and have put some in a little squirt bottle myself.
I would love to hear any more of the folklore that surrounds this product.

I"ve never heard of this - but I think "intent" has a lot to do with clearing negative energy. Scent always evokes such powerful feelings - which is why I think incense works so well.

Just listening to you talk about how the smell makes you feel, it sounds like this is a great use for the 'cologne'.. :)

Yes intent is so imortant.
And besides the smell being so nice and uplifting it was a thoughtful gift of friendship that makes it very special to me.

Funny thing is it is produced by Goya Foods.
I think I'll do a search maybe they have something to say about it if they have a web site.

Yes, intent may be part of it, but I believe some things are simply more pure or more impregnated with natural elements that are good for that intent.

For instance, Nag Champa is a favorite incense for healers and Witches because it has proven to be very enhancing to healing work.... Incense really does vary.... cheap incense tends to have alot of 'junk' in it that can send out 'bad' vibes.... Anyone who works with aromatherapy will understand that.

As far as water goes, we have a water source for our drinking water that is a virtual giant bowl of smokey quartz!! Can you imagine?? I looooove our water.

I thought of that immediately when you wrote about the Florida water.... it would be interesting to see exactly where the water originates.....

Hi Skytwig!
They do have a website but not a word about Florida Water.
I understand what you are saying.
If something over time takes on the tradition of being healing and purifying, as this cologne has, and your example of Nag Champa, there is a reason for it.
That's what I'd like to know, the history behind it.
It has such a beautiful smell, like nothing I've smelt before.
Very uplifting.
I feel it elevates the vibrational level in the room.
Or maybe my vibrational level because I'm so happy to smell it. :)

A water bowl of smokey quartz!
You are very lucky to be drinking that water!

Thank you so much September Pixie thats it!
Mine looks just like the bottle on the left.
And recipes so we can see just what it's made of.
Wonderful!
If you click on 'rituals of home protection ect.' there is a whole page of traditional uses.
Very interesting reading.

It looks like it would be expensive to make at home there are so many different oils in it.
Here it cost about $3.00 a bottle.

Thanks once again I'm going to bookmark it and show it to my friend.

hey - i actually saw a bottle of this the other day...i recognize the packaging. i was in a cubian market and they had a section of personal products. i really had no idea what most of them were for or even where you would put them. thanks for the info. from the recipe it sounds like it would smell lushious!

Hi,

I have heard of Florida water, Actually met someone who used to wear it.

I think the key here is do you like the scent...if so pour your energy into the bottle and let it work for you.

I like wearing essential oils from time to time..Scott Cunningham has recipies for different astology signs..

Blessings

I have read about Florida Water in several of my Wiccan books (I have never had any :) ) Most of the books I have read recommend it in cleansing rituals but it can be substituted with cleansed water, purified water or blessed water.

Like anything else spiritual I think if it feels right to you to go ahead and use it.

Here is a site that talks about its many uses :)
