Florida Water is used in many of the religious practices from the Carribean-influenced Spitirualism and Spiritism belief systems.
It is often used for ritual offering to the departed and purification. It is a fragrance that is welcomed by the Spirits. It is used in spells to remove unwanted thought forms and heavy, negative vibrations, to encourage the display of emotions, to calm those who talk too much, and to bring peace to places where an excess of energy is present. Many use it like Holy Water for cleansings, blessings, good luck and protection.
