Blessing Water is used in hoodoo to bless and cleanse new items you’ve acquired or to give old items a “fresh start.” as well as for house protection and spiritual cleansing. Let’s say that someone came over and picked up a ritual item that you don’t normally allow anyone to touch. You would rub Blessing water on your hands and rub the item – in essence, you are “buffing away” someone else’s energy. It is the same principle of cleansing items in salt Some brands of cologne and waters have been sold since the Victorian age and, over time, came to be used as “holy water” in the tradition of hoodoo. This candle represents that same energy where we allow the blend of essential oils used and the flame to perform the blessing work. Blessing Water forumula candle contains: Lavender, Tangerine, Sweet Orange, Lemon, Clove, and other herbs and essential oils.
Each is colored slightly according to its purpose and sprinkled with a finishing touch of herbs on the top of each candle. Next, the jars are given a final cleaning and labeled. They are then taken to my altar in our sanctuary where they are blessed and smudged.
