Do you know the Full Moon Water or Lunar Water? Full Moon Water is water that has absorbed the properties of the energy of the Full Moon or an eclipse, equinox or solstice.
I first learned of its existence a few years ago, during a Halloween celebration. Until that time, the only Moon Water I knew of was women’s perfume (which smells wonderful, by the way).
Moon Water is able to purify the energy of the body, mind and soul. It is always used for positive and beneficial purposes, never to harm. In this article I will explain how to make Moon Water yourself at home, the ritual involved, its properties and how to use it.
In order to get some Full Moon Water we are going to need several items and, of course, for the Moon to be approaching its full phase. Gather the following utensils:
The steps to follow to get Moon Water are very simple and you can make it yourself at home. It will not take you more than 15 minutes.
To channel the effect we want our Moon Water to have, we must pronounce or write a spell or intention during the ritual. When we place our pot in the moonlight, we must be relaxed. Remember to meditate before the ritual.
Now comes the moment of intention. Focus on your wish and write it down or pronounce it. For example, you can ask the moon to empower the water with its energies to increase your serenity. Or you can ask her to give you more physical energy, happiness, more ability to concentrate, more health… Any pure and good intention is valid, but it must be for yourself. The Moon Water only works with the witch who does the ritual and focuses the wish.
As I always say, I am an advocate of writing our own spells or intentions. Always be honest with yourself when writing down your intentions or goals. It is well known that both water and the Moon feel intentions. Water is capable of absorbing both good and bad. An example of a spell could be:
“Moon, I ask you to influence these waters with your full energy, so that I can achieve the serenity I need in my meditations.”
There is the possibility of doing Moon Water for another person, but it requires a lot of concentration and ability to channel the other person’s wish or need into the ritual. It is a process for advanced witches. For example, you have a friend who has cloudy energy and needs help to purify her energies. You could ask the moon to charge the water with energy to help your friend.
You would need to concentrate a lot on that person, have something that binds you to her (an object will do) and focus your intention towards her. The problem comes when the witch is not able to concentrate at all or influences the ritual with her own energy. The resulting Moon Water would not work as well.
Airtight glass jar on Amazon The glass jars I like best when it comes to getting Moon Water are the ones with a clear lid and an airtight seal. The moonlight penetrates better through all the nooks and crannies of the jar and, being airtight, the water will not be contaminated by any agents such as dust or bad vibes.
They are sold here cheaply and are of good quality, in different sizes. I use them for my infusions and for the Agua de Luna. If you don’t want to spend the money, you can always recycle a glass jar from a canning jar. But remember to clean it very well.

If you wish, you can put flowers or pieces of fruit in the jar to make infused Agua de Luna. Make sure the fruits are clean and if you are going to put flowers inside the jar, make sure they are not poisonous and are edible. If you want to try, start by adding chamomile or mint flowers. Flowers can also be placed around the jar, ideal for the spring equinox.
You can take the opportunity to charge your quartz with the light of the Full Moon. Place the minerals next to the glass jar. In this way, you will propitiate the recharge of the water and the energies will be more stable.
Moon Water is yet another magical element for a witch. It acts similarly to magical minerals, as it is charged with clean energy and is able to absorb negative energies. With lunar water you will get:
Here comes the most interesting part of all. The energy stored in Full Moon Water is very stable, it is clean, it is powerful and it harmonizes with any situation. You will be amazed at all the uses Full Moon Water has in your daily life:
You can make herbal teas with the lunar water. Prepare the infusion as you normally would, but change the usual water for moon water.
Spiritual energy at the start of the day
If you drink Full Moon Water when you wake up, it will give you spiritual energy to face your day.

If you need to purify an object (for example, a piece of jewellery), you can immerse it in Full Moon Water. The energy stored in these waters will cleanse the negativity from that object and influence it with new energy. Leaving the object submerged for one day is enough. Of course, the moon water will absorb all the negativity and spent energy of the object, so you must get rid of it immediately and clean the container. Do not touch it or drink it!
It also serves to purify your magical crystals and charge them with new energy.
You can water or spray the plants with the lunar water. It promotes their growth, especially in the flowering months.
If you are going to take a bath, pour moon water in your bathtub to enhance the relaxing effect of your essential oils. It is an ideal combination with lavender oil.
Moon water is ideal for enhancing meditation. Drink some Full Moon Water before meditating to benefit from this effect, stabilize your mind and enhance your senses.
If you want to cleanse your home or home office environment, put some Moon Water in a spray bottle. You can add a few drops of natural essential oil to scent it. Then spray the air in the room. You will notice how the energies stabilize and your sanctuary returns to what it was. I recommend that you spray a room after you have a visitor, as you never know what spent energies they bring with them.
Moon water can serve as a protective addition to your home. Spray some at the entrance of your home to protect it from negative energies. Combine this with some tiger’s eye stones and you have a powerful protection.
Have you tried Full Moon Water on your face? After a long day and after removing your makeup, cleanse your face with moon water to remove any presence of worn out energy and negativity from the skin. Its energizing properties will be immediately noticeable on the most tired and battered skin. You can also spray some moon water on your face before you leave the house to energize yourself, just as you do with cosmetic mists, but this one is much more natural and magical.
I leave you with two images with the full moons remaining in 2020. At the end of November we have a Full Moon and at the end of December, coinciding with the end of the year, another one. This last Full Moon of the year is going to be very powerful.
In addition, for the remainder of 2020 we will have several lunar events:
And you, are you going to do Lunar Water at the next Full Moon?
