This recipe has been made and handed down since about 1830. This was an alternative to the factory produced one as herbs, roots, fruit, and alchohol were a lot more accessible to slaves. My grandmother would make a batch of this an allow it to sit in a dark corner for a few months, enchanting it and giving intention and prayers at least once a week.


This Florida water isn't made in mass production for cheap but in small controled batches using the highest quality 120 proof alcohol, select sun dried herbs and spices, and essential oil.The use of essential oils is very generous and it is very fragrant, so dilution is possible. Wonderful fragrance of citrus and sweet anise.


Historically in old time Voodoo, Florida Water was more often used as a drawing ingredient. One simple trick for using it was to put it in a small fireproof container and ignite it, then warm one's hands over the flames as a way to call money into one's hands. Another old money spell was to hang a little horseshoe magnet over one's door that had been fed with gold and silver magnetic sand, and then periodically sprinkle it with Florida Water perfume so that it would attract success and money into the house.
