What is it?
Moon Water is a type of sacred, consecrated water that has been energetically infused with the light of the moon. It can be used to cleanse or bless sacred objects. Traditionally created during a full moon, you can create moon water any phase in order to capture the essence of that particular lunar energy. You may wish to charge water under a waning moon for banishing work, or a new moon for attracting abundant energy. The full moon, however, is often regarded as the most magically potent phase.
How to make it:
Choose a glass jar or bottle with a lid. Wash your vessel of choice. Then cleanse your vessel with methods such as recaning (sometimes referred to as smoke cleansing).
Fill the container with the water to be charged. You may use tap water for this, although using collected rain water or fresh water from a spring can add additional magical energy to your moon water.
Place the container where it will receive moonlight from your chosen moon phase either outside or on a windowsill. Outside is preferred if you have the option, but by a widow will be sufficient.
Once the water has been sufficiently charged with the lunar energy, store the vessel in a cool dark place. Be sure to collect your moon water before daylight to keep its essence purely lunar.
Too cloudy to see the moon? You can still make moon water on a cloudy night as clouds are opaque; lunar light is able to penetrate through the loudspeaker, even if you can’t see it.
You can make full moon water the day before and after the full moon; the phase spans a 3 day period.
Place a quartz crystal near your moon water as you charge it, to amplify the lunar energy.

You can enhance your moon water by adding magical elements inside, on, or around your vessel. Some examples are;
- Essential Oils

Be aware of how you plan to use your moon water. Do not add moon water that contains salt to your plants, teas, or drinking water.

You can also consider surrounding the outside of your vessel with crystals or herbs.
You can also choose to paint the vessel with Sigils, Runes, or Sacred symbols to enhance your intentions.
