Moon Water is water that has been exposed to moonlight, and charged with intention. This is a fantastic way to intensify the moon cycles, along with their energies into your monthly routines.
Benefits of Moon Water
When you charge your water under the energy of the moon, whether full or new (or anywhere between), you enhance and intensify your relationship with the moon, along with all its subtle and not so subtle energy influence.
- Using Moon Water helps you adapt to the changing seasons

- Use the increasing moon and Full Moon charged water gaining mental clarity, expanding potential, and putting your intentions into action

How to make Moon Water
To make moon water, simply fill a glass container or bowl with filtered or drinking water, leave outside overnight in the moonlight with a closed lid (so critters don’t get in there), and done!
We personally choose to use large mason jars, which is what we also generally drink out of.
The moon can actually be in any phase, but each phase will give moon water different energetic properties.

How to store your Moon Water
I highly recommend using glass to store you moon water. This helps to ensure you don’t have to worry about any chemicals in plastic or coating metal leaching into your water.
Personally, we use Lifefactory glass water bottles for drinking, and mason jars for storing. Mason jars work especially well if you’re adding in crystals too.
