Moon water has gained popularity over the past couple of years as one of the easiest and most accessible methods of working with lunar energy. It can be made to harness the power of any moon phase, but it is most commonly made during the Full Moon.
How to Make Moon Water
Fill a glass or metal container with water and place it outside overnight under the desired moon phase. Glass and metal are two elements that hold energy firmly. Plastics are known to leech contaminants into the water.
You'll want to use water as pure as possible, either spring or well water, or water purified with a carbon filter or via reverse osmosis. While this is ideal, it is not always possible, so I use simple techniques like boiling water to remove any impurities.
Ideally, you'll want to place the container outside under the moonlight; however, sometimes, that is not realistic for your situation. If you can't get to it on a specific day, the moon water can be placed outside on or within three days of the desired moon phase. You may also be in a situation where you don't have access to place items outdoors, so you can get creative with placements. Placing the container on a windowsill to absorb moonlight is one of my favorite shortcuts, but you can use a balcony, stoop, or fire escape in a pinch.
How to Use Moon Water
There are an infinite number of uses for Moon Water, but here are some of my favorite uses:
Make a spray/mist for energetic clearing - I keep energy clearing sprays in almost every room of my house. This is one of my favorite quick fixes for transmuting funky energy that may be lingering around. You can add essential oils to your preference and energetic needs.
Spellwork - Moon water is an excellent base for spellwork. Full moon water is excellent for energizing, while New Moon water is great for clearing. It is also a great base for homemade cosmetics and topical lotions.
Ritual baths - A great way to soak up the moon's rays is to bathe in the water that the moon has blessed. Ritual baths have been around for millennia and have been used as a method of self-care and self-love.
Diffuser - This is a great way to subtly infuse the space with lunar energy or shift the area's energy without attracting too much attention.
Water plants - Plants that live indoors tend to miss the energies they would have experienced outdoors. This is a great way to connect and honor your beloved houseplants and thank them for all they do for your space.
Cleaning - I love doing proactive energy maintenance and double-duty on my household chores adding moon water into my cleaning solution.
Drinking - This may seem obvious, but it is one of the most overlooked methods of absorbing moon water. You can drink it straight up, on the rocks, and make tea, coffee, or even lemonade. Remember that the specific lunar phase effects will infuse and amp up any natural effects, so making espresso with full moon water may be a highly energetic potion.
Cooking - You can also easily sub your moon water into any recipe that calls for water. Water is probably one of the most commonly used basic yet magical tools we have access to.
Offerings - Moon water makes a great offering if you're working with deities like Artemis, who work with the moon. This is also an excellent offering for ancestors if you're looking to connect with them in a dream state.
