To make Moon Water, it’s important to first know what you want to do with it. If you plan to ingest it the next day, you’ll want to take a jar, glass, or container of distilled, filtered, or spring water, and set it outside to soak up the lunar energies of the Full Moon. Do not use plastic. Glass is best but ceramic works as well. Metal can be conducive to EMF’s, which can influence and alter the molecular structure of your water. So, it’s best to use glass if possible.
Placing water inside of a crystal singing bowl, or glass water bottle that has water safe crystals in it, can add to the vibrational harmony of the water.
Placing a screen or lid over the container to prevent bugs, dirt, or debris from blowing in the water will keep it clean for drinking the next morning.
When drinking the water the next day, you can set your intention with a prayer, affirmation, or even visualizing specific colors of light penetrating the water before you drink it. Water molecules respond to human intention, and this is how we can also bless our water too.
If you plan to use your Moon Water for bathing such as in bath rituals, you can infuse botanicals or essential oils into the water as well. This can create a concentrate that you add to your bath water once you’re ready to do your bath ritual. Be sure that whatever you use is skin safe, and does not cause any allergic reactions. Some botanicals can stain porcelain, tile, or bath towels. So keep that in mind when you are creating your elixirs and infusions.
Ideas for botanicals include: Chamomile flowers, Rose Hips, Rose flowers or buds, Cinnamon, Clove, Calendula flowers, Hibiscus flowers, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Dandelion, Thistle, Garlic, Stinging Nettle, and Burdock Root. These are also botanicals that are used in blessings and energy cleansing. They can be simmered on the stove ahead of time to create the infusions, or, they can be placed directly in the jar of water you set out for a cold infusion overnight. The amount of water you use is completely up to you.
Some people also do a light Smudge with Sage, Cedar, Sweetgrass, or Lavender and allow the smoke to billow over the jar before and after placing it outside to clear any energies that may interfere.
You can also place water in a shallow wide mouth bowl and set your water safe crystals in it to bathe in the Moonlight. This is an intention more for cleansing crystals than using the water for bath rituals. Crystals can also be placed in a bowl of salt, sand, or clean soil and sat out under the moonlight to absorb the Full Moon energies. For crystals that are used often in energy work, especially energy protection or rituals, they can be buried in a shallow plot outside overnight for the Moon and Earth to cleanse them. Keep in mind that some crystals may be too fragile to bury, or have mineral compositions that could deteriorate if buried.
Crystals can also be placed in a bed of ash that has been derived from a meditative Smudge, or ceremonial ritual specifically for elevating vibrational energies. Rituals using Smoke Cleansing for ascension, psychic channeling, emotional healing, and uplifting intentions can be done ahead of time and the ash can be used by itself or combined with salt, sand, or clean soil, to better infuse the crystals with a specific vibration.
Because a Water Moon will have us tuning in to our Heart Center, and help us align with our emotional bodies, you can use crystals specifically that hold a water vibration. Crystals such as Blue Lace Agate, Blue Calcite, Green Calcite, Emerald, Chrysoprase, Green Aventurine, Blue Aventurine, Chalcedony, Onyx, Apache Tears, Black Obsidian, and Fluorite are great options to work with.
The size of your crystals aren’t important. Rough, tumbled, or carved crystals all hold the same vibration. However some crystals may channel energy to a more precise point of light than others when they are cut and carved into specific shapes such as Vogel Wands, Pyramids, and obelisks.
After you have charged your crystals in the Moonlight overnight, you can take them indoors and use them for Meditative work, placing them on your altars, or gridding your home to reflect the vibrations they are emanating. Using them in Chakra Meditations work great too.
