How To Make Moon Water


Making Moon Water is easy basically you need a jar with a lid or bowl with plastic wrap, and some time. These directions are going to be a little more complicated but not a lot because who wants to spend hours doing this?

Moon Water is usually created on a Full Moon (I’ll cover some other options at the end of this post) the Full Moon can consist of the night before, the night of, and the night after the Full Moon. You can use it all three nights, or just the night of the Full Moon. You’re going to need a bowl, usually glass (it’s best to avoid any sort of metal) and some plastic wrap, although you don’t have to cover your bowl of water. Think about where you live and what sorts of nighttime visitors you get, and the end purpose of your water before you decide on not covering it. Plastic wrap will let the moonbeams through so your water can absorb them.

Bowl with Plastic wrap or a Jar with a lid

Water, any kind is okay although most will say filtered/spring water is best.

Optional: Herbs, Crystals, Word Labels, Pen, and Paper for intentions.

Directions: Clean your bowl or jar -usually with soap and water but cleansing with an herbal smoke is often done too.

Fill your bowl with the water you’ve chosen. If you’re going to add herbs, crystals add them now. Close your jar or wrap plastic wrap around your bowl. If you’ve chosen to add word labels to increase your intentions, you can tape them to your jar or bottom of the bowl now.

Find a place outside when your container will receive full moonlight throughout the night. You may want to look for a place where animals will not bother your water. I learned the hard way. You can state your intentions now if you’d like. Leave the container unbothered until sunrise.

At sunrise bring your container inside, transfer your water to a storage container if you need. Label the container with the date, moon name, zodiac, any special circumstances, intentions placed during the moon charge, etc. You can keep notes on what this particular moon water can be used for. Keep your moon water in a dark place to keep safe.
