DIY Florida Water

Sharing is caring!

Florida water is a combination of essential oils mixed with a solvent (in this case, alcohol). It originally was made in Florida, inspired by the Fountain of Youth, which according to folklore is located in St Augustine, FL.

Originally, Florida Water was sold as a unisex cologne or perfume, providing a lighter than normal spicy-citrus-floral fragrance. This fragrance was also often used as a linen spray.

Over time, people realized the botanicals in Florida Water provided many physical and mental wellness benefits, and its popularity grew through health related uses as well as used as a cleaning product.
