Uses for Moon Water 🌙

Due to popular demand, I’ve decided to make a post on the uses of moon water! 

  1. Add a drop to lunar spell jars based on intent
  2. Add to a bath for cleansing and relaxation
  3. Rinse and cleanse your hair with it in the shower
  4. Purify and use in consumable potions for enhanced psychic abilities, relaxation, protection, or dreamwork
  5. Make a cleansing spray and use in your home
  6. Sprinkle a few drops around the perimeter of your home or bedroom
  7. Use to anoint and cleanse objects such as magickal tools or crystals
  8. Use to anoint yourself before spellwork or divination, or simply to promote peace and relaxation
  9. Use to charge objects with lunar energy
  10. Water your plants with it
  11. Add it to your water cup when painting to promote imaginative thinking 
  12. Add a few drops to the washer before washing bedsheets to promote dreaming
  13. Use as a representation of either water, the moon, or both on your altar
  14. Combine with corresponding crystals or herbs for an added boost of energy
  15. Fill a hollow pendant with it and wear it to represent the moon, a particular lunar phase, or one of its associated correspondences (protection, relaxation, enhanced psychic abilities, etc.)
  16. Anoint a charm with moon water and carry it with you for protection, safe travels, or improved memory 

Tips & a few words of caution:

  • Always purify and filter your moon water before consuming
  • If you plan to add crystals to your moon water, use tumbled stones so they won’t break down in the water (especially if you plan to drink it)
  • If you do plan to consume your moon water, store it in the fridge to extend it’s shelf life
  • Don’t water your plants with cold moon water; make sure it’s lukewarm or at room temperature first
  • If you’re unsure on what kind of intentions correspond to lunar energy, check out the links below 

These are just some ideas on how to use moon water, but feel free to get creative! 

Byzantine Gold Mary Orans Pendant, 6th-8th Century AD

A hollow-formed gold pendant comprising a plaque with repoussé nimbate facing Mary Theotokos with hands raised in orans gesture, with radiating lines to the nimbus, draped mantle with pelleted borders, ‘MP’ and 'OV’ legend above the shoulders; to the upper edge, a frame with free-running pearl seed beads; above, a hinged barrel-shaped suspension loop with filigree collets, cell with granulated surround and inset emerald cabochon.

The Latin word Orans means “praying” and refers to a posture, in which the Virgin Mary, saint or a priest intercedes on behalf of all. The Orans position, or some variation of it, was common to almost all ancient religions as an outward sign of supplicating a deity. It was taken up in ancient Christianity and is found on many monuments, paintings, mosaics and personal items, particularly representing the Virgin Mary, who intercedes with god on behalf of mankind.

Etruscan Gold Bulla with Daedalus and Icarus, 5th Century BC

A “bulla” is a hollow pendant that could hold perfume or a charm. Found inside this one was “labdanum,” a substance used in perfume. Depicted are the mythical craftsman Daedalus and his son, Icarus (on the back). To escape captivity, Daedalus fabricated wings for himself and his son, but Icarus flew too close to the sun, and when the heat melted the wax that held his wings together, he fell to his death. This artifact is believed to be from from Comacchio, near Ferrara, Italy.

Bactrian Gold and Garnet Earrings, c. 5th Century BC

A matched pair of fabricated earrings, each comprising a hollow penannular tube with domed finials, hinge and suspension bar attached; to the outer edge of the tube, nine rings each with a hollow discoid pendant; to the inner edge of the tube, a crescentic plaque set with six garnet cloisons and a heart-shaped cell with granule detail, inset cabochon garnet, supporting a sheet gold flower.

Hellenistic Gold Griffin Pendant, c. 3rd-1st Century BC

The griffin, griffon, or gryphon is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle.The lion is traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle the king of the birds. The griffin, a combination of those two animals was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. In antiquity, the griffin was a symbol of divine power.

Originally, this gold griffin applique would be attached to a cloth through the three openings on its base. A suspension ring and a bail were recently attached to make the griffin a wearable pendant.

The hollow gold griffin is made from two die-stamped halves soldered together. The collar and tail are made of applied gold beads. The lower part of the body is decorated with two granulation clusters. Two ribbed gold pendants are hanging from the griffin’s beak.
