Ritual Botanica

Florida Water


Once upon a time, well 1800's American that is, Florida Water was regarded as "the best perfume in the world," with a long list of applications and remedies. By the 1900's its potent cleansing and refreshing characteristics were picked up by spiritual workers, especially in the Santeria, Voodoo and Hoodoo traditions.

It's now used to cleanse the body, altars and tools; especially 7 day candles. Florida water is often sprayed as a blessing and offering, used to anoint the body, attract good fortune and benevolent spirits. The vibrations of anything that comes into contact with Florida Water is raised so that negativity cannot thrive. 

Just as Florida water was America's take on eau de cologne, this Florida Water is Ritual Botanica's Appalachian herbal twist on these popular sprays. Instead of solely Essential Oils, this blend is crafted from hydrosols and extracts, still remaining true to the strong floral & citrus notes which are staples to Florida Water. Lavender remains as a core ingredients with it's panacea of benefits. Lemon Balm and Sassafras leaves make up the citrus notes while offering uplifting and cleansing properties. For an extra cleansing boost Poke berries are blended in. Angelica archangelica offers a door to connect with higher energies & vibrations. Bergamot peel is replaced with Bee Balm which offers assistance with releasing emotions and balancing the blend as well as harmonizing your own being. Lastly Pea Flowers offers the sweetness of home, allowing us to remain grounded while doing our work. The color of this Florida Water is one that resonates with our higher selves--our evolved chakras in a sense.

Florida Water

I use this magical tonic to clear the space before & after massage treatments. My clients always comment how sacred the room feels when they enter. This is a valuable tool to have in my Healing Tool Chest

This stuff is gold. I love using it as part of my morning routine to clean both internal and external energy before I sit down to write in my journal and greet the day. It helps start the day fresh and get rid of any negative energies.

Thank you

A wonderful rendition of the original Florida Water with the intentional addition of jinx-breaking and energetic cleansing herbs. Thank you for creating this product. Labeling and packaging are immaculate. Thank you. I now understand why everyone always raves about you.


Why does this smell sooo good? It's magic. It smells fresher than fresh. Like hasn't been born yet fresh. Floral and crisp and effervescent. I want to smell this all day on all of the days. Nights too. I try to save it for special occasions but it makes every occasion special! I walked into my room -special! Spritz spritz. I got home from work- special! Spritz spritz. Climbing into bed...definitely special and time to mist my pillows with this mamma jamma and be protected in my sleep. Yes! The pretty lavender grey color adds to the mysterious aura of this precious concoction. True love.

Cleansing and calming
