How To Make Moon Water

Next full moon is approaching, are you ready to harness its power for self healing and transformation?

Have you felt overly emotional, had a crying or raging episode and looked up to notice that it was a full moon? That explains it right.

The moon is the ruler of our emotions and as beings that experience life through our emotions we are deeply connected to its energy. It’s no wonder that when a full moon is approaching we can get a little crazy, sad or angry. It’s emotional energy that needs to be released and the moon is making sure it happens.

The moon is an amplifier of energy, both positive and negative, and of our sixth sense. Its energy is strongest on a full moon and it’s during this time that we can take advantage of its transformational power. Because the moon has strong cleansing properties and opens our intuitive nature, we can benefit from it’s strength by harnessing its energy in moon water.

Moon water is water that is charged by the energy of the moon. Preferably a full moon or supermoon, where the energy is heightened. If the energy of the moon has the power to transform us, imagine what it can do to our water.

For centuries, cultures around the globe have used the moon in rituals for empowerment, cleansing and manifestation. We can tap into this ancient wisdom by making our own moon water and using it to assist us in attracting more of what we need and want into our lives.

The moon water rituals I share with you below are ones that I have used and benefited from. Making full moon water is a monthly tradition in my home and I use it for everything from attracting abundance to spiritual cleansing. Moon water is easy to make and use. Here’s what you need to get started.

Make Your Own Moon Water

Full moon water by Aiyana Fraley

What you’ll need

  • Mason jar, bowl or large jug
  • Purified, spring or distilled water


  1. Fill container with water. I prefer a jar with a lid to prevent bugs and critters from accessing it. This is especially important if you plan on ingesting your moon water.
  2. Place the jar under the full moon for the entire night. It is best if you find a spot that is not blocked by buildings or other objects to allow the moon light to penetrate the jar without obstruction.
  3. Bless your water and set your intentions. This is the time for you to pray to your higher power and ask your guides and the moon for assistance. If you are a reiki practitioner, infuse the power of reiki into the water by drawing any of the reiki symbols over the jar or channeling the energy through your hands as you hold it.
  4. The next morning your moon water is ready for use. Collect it and use in one of the 10 ways listed below.

How to use moon water

  1. Energize your crystals with moon water. Place your crystals in a jar with some moon water to cleanse and empower the crystals. Clear quartz is an amplifier of energy and can transform negative energy into positive energy. Add this crystal to the moon water for extra umph.
  2. Cleanse yourself with a moon bath. Fill the tub with warm water. Add epsom salt and a couple of handfuls of white flower petals for purification or red rose petals to attract love. Then add a few cups of moon water to the bath. I sometimes like to add crystals and essential oils to the bath too. Soak for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Drink your moon water. Take a sip or two everyday to empower yourself with the energy of the moon. Make sure you use purified, spring or distilled water if you are going to ingest your moon water, and keep it refrigerated.
  4. Use your moon water to make essential oil perfumes for yourself and home clearing sprays like this Smudge Spray.
  5. Water your plants with it. Plants will benefit from the energy of the moon.
  6. Place moon water in a cup on your altar to amplify your intentions and goals.
  7. Use it as a daily aura cleanse. Put it in a spray bottle and spray around your aura to cleanse your energy every morning before leaving your home.
  8. Moon water for beauty and self care. Use your moon water to enhance your natural beauty by making a toner with it. Add a few drops of lavender essential oil in a bottle with the moon water and use daily after cleansing your face or as a refresher throughout the day.
  9. Diffuse your moon water in your home. Place moon water into your aromatherapy diffuser with the essential oil or oils of your choice to clear the air and enhance the effect of the oils you use. For example, orange is the oil of abundance. Want more abundance in your life? Add a few drops of wild orange to the diffuser along with your moon water.
  10. Get creative and use this moon water to manifest your soul’s desire. Make your own ritual and allow the energy of the full moon to support you.

im lucky, i found out about this the night of the full moon 🙂

e December 19, 2021 - 7:41 am

Yes, but if you want it to have its full energy, its highly suggested to do it on a full moon. It wont work if it isnt on the full moon.

Aiyana Fraley January 2, 2022 - 1:07 pm

The full moon is the phase where the moon reaches its fullness, its potency is strong. This is a time of heightened psychic and intuitive abilities, which is why a lot of ceremonial work is done in this phase. It also takes us deeper yin energy of our body so we can explore our emotional intelligence, and use our intuition. It’s wonderful for all of that and but all phases of the moon are significant. For example, the waning crescent moon is the phase where the moon gets smaller and we see a beautiful crescent shape in the sky. It is also very powerful. It helps us wean off of poor habits and people who no longer serve us. The waxing phase is one of growth and shifting. This is the phase we want to nourish ourselves in all the ways needed to support that growth.

I love this idea. Indistill my own tap water instead of paying outraged $$ for what God freely bestowed upon this planet as out #1 nutrient. Super moon this month so mows an especially benefitial time to make this fantastic beverage! I ask my God of creation and all things good to surround you with the white light of protection & blessings.
Thank you for enlightening your readers!

It’s very enlightening and it makes a big difference in your life all the way around. I do it. My daughter does it and we are so at peace when we do our Moon Water with a Clear Crystal Quartz in each jar. It’s “epic”

Thank you Trina!

My daughter got me into crystals. I now have more energy. I laugh more and feel more empowered. Will start making moon water. I live in the smoky mountains and am into natural remedies since they are in abundance here. The trees plants and waterways here are powerful

Aiyana Fraley August 12, 2020 - 12:43 pm

Hi Jerri, what a peaceful and alive place to live. I’m glad your daughter introduced you to crystals. You can cleanse and charge your crystals on the full moon while you also make your moon water. Let love and light surround all your spiritual tools.

Can you start ingesting moon water a few days before,during and after fir flu?

Aiyana Fraley March 8, 2020 - 11:33 pm

The full moon water is for spiritual purposes and you can drink it after it has been charged with the energy of the full moon. I do not know about fir flu.

Harriet Jones April 20, 2019 - 12:52 pm

Hi, what would happen if I straight up chugged a jar of moon water? I keep it next to my bed when I need to sip from it for energy but I fear one day I’ll be really thirsty and drink it all.

Aiyana Fraley May 22, 2019 - 9:23 pm

You can drink your moon water, just charge a bottle of clean water. You will take in all the good vibes from the moon.

Azzie August 14, 2019 - 3:34 am

Harriet Jones I actually did this with July 31st Black Moon water (while camping out in the woods) and it brought about my spiritual awakening and I think it also started opening my Third Eye, as well as promoting love and abundance, so go ahead and chug! Self-care!

Great Article, thanks for the knowledge and wisdom, I did not know you could charge it with different intentions, & that is awesome. I am going to have to subscribe now, as I just found this page.

Aiyana Fraley July 21, 2019 - 5:38 pm

Thanks for your support Jen!

Kristen November 14, 2019 - 1:23 am

Hi I just drank some moon water and now I am hallucinating a cat flying around my room and to be frankly honest it is causing me great distress, it is in no way bringing good energy . Do you have any suggestions? Could I have drank to much moon juice .

Alex Ortiz July 19, 2019 - 4:46 am

Can you the spray bottle me plastic? Can you transfer the water to another bottle in order to store more of it?

Aiyana Fraley July 21, 2019 - 5:36 pm

Yes, you can use plastic. You can place plastic water bottles outside in your full moon ritual to take in the energy of the moon. If you’re adding essential oils to the plastic bottle, they need to be PET plastics or one that states it is safe for essential oils.

If I’d see a bottle with that sticker in a store, I’d buy it 100% haha. I love the article Aiyana!


Aiyana Fraley September 14, 2019 - 11:14 am

Thanks Tina! I would too, you are on to a great idea.

Monte September 8, 2019 - 1:11 am

I’m new to the moon water. My friend she made her a jar and me a jar. Now see what happens when use. Can my friend give me moon water or I need to make my own.

Aiyana Fraley September 14, 2019 - 11:12 am

Absolutely! What a kind friend to share moon water with you 🙂

Joshua White January 3, 2020 - 3:08 am

Can you freeze the moon water and retain its energizing qualities? I don’t always have a full moon every month so I have to make mine last for longer.

Aiyana Fraley January 6, 2020 - 8:15 pm

I suppose you can, I haven’t tried it before. Fresh is always better and there is a full moon every month 🙂 If you do freeze it, let us know how it works in comparison.

Tiffany September 13, 2019 - 6:23 am

I made a couple jars of moon water in mason jars but never read that it needs kept refrigerated…its been in a dark cupboard. Is this still okay to drink?

Aiyana Fraley September 14, 2019 - 11:11 am

Hi Tiffany, Give it a sniff and notice if it smells like mold or mildew. I recommend putting the water in the fridge to avoid mildew from growing in it. If you fill the jar up to the top, away from light and at room temperature, it will be okay for a couple of weeks more or less. Always smell and notice any changes in the color. Thanks for your question!

Melody January 26, 2021 - 8:12 pm

I made Moon Water for the first time in a mason jar under the Blue Moon on Halloween 2020 with Clear Quatrz, Carnelian, Amethyst, Blue Calcit, Jade, Turquoise, Moonstone, Red and Rose Quartz (I maybe got a little carried away, haha) and the water smelled and looked clear up to now, 3 mos. later. I recently used it to make a facial serum with some essential oils. I have left it out on a night stand in my basement, under a large window where it is shaded and I could not believe it still looked so clear and smelled clean…aside from a slight minerally odor. I must say that the serum made my face feel like a baby’s bottom, haHA.

Aiyana Fraley April 29, 2021 - 1:39 pm

Hi Melody, I love this idea. Try keeping your serum in a dark bottle away from heat and it will last longer. Essential oils can last many years if properly kept. It sounds like your facial serum is working. I do like this combination of crystals used in your water.

Liz September 14, 2019 - 5:09 am

Hi I put my bottle of water out when the moon was hidden behind clouds. I don’t think the position of my bottle was in sight of the moon throughout the night. Does this mean it won’t be charged.

Aiyana Fraley September 14, 2019 - 11:06 am

Hi Liz, Yes it will still receive the charge from the moon. Moon, sun and star energy moves through clouds, trees and other objects that may be blocking the view. You water is certainly charge by the moon. Thanks for this great question.

Liz September 15, 2019 - 6:07 am

Thanks Aiyana, could I also ask if its ok if my moon water was still out when the sun had rose. It was in the morning light for about 20 minutes.

Aiyana Fraley September 15, 2019 - 4:42 pm

That’s perfectly fine Liz. I do that all the time and the sun’s energy is powerful too. It gives high vibes, happiness, motivation, and power. You get the best of both worlds!

Liz September 15, 2019 - 5:23 pm

Thanks so much x

fidelis Onoh Iwhiwhu October 24, 2019 - 4:17 pm

I am in Nigeria. I will try it when there is full moon

Gavin October 28, 2019 - 7:35 pm

i’ve heard you can make moon water in the new moon do you know what energy that will hold

Via April 24, 2020 - 1:06 am

The new moons magic is for visions and new beginnings. I use that for when I want to visit the hedge.

Aiyana Fraley August 12, 2020 - 12:35 pm

That is wonderful! What a great way to charge them.

Mary November 1, 2019 - 3:04 am

Will Moon Water charge crystals with the energy of the moon?

Via April 24, 2020 - 1:07 am

I think so, it’s definitely a way to cleanse them. But for Max effect of charging your crystals I suggest placing them under the full moon. 🙂

Javier January 5, 2020 - 2:40 pm

How long does the energy charge last? Can you charge only water or you can also charge a pure distilled alcohol like mexican Mezcal?

Thanks for the info ✨✨

Aiyana Fraley January 6, 2020 - 8:13 pm

You can charge anything with the full moon energy. The purpose of charging the water is that we can use it in many ways to empower our lives.

Binita Pal February 15, 2020 - 5:33 am

We need to place that bottle everyday under the moon or we can use the water from full moon day ?? Kindly please reply . And thank you for sharing such a beautiful article.

Aiyana Fraley March 8, 2020 - 11:32 pm

Place it on the night of the full moon.

Loveth February 24, 2020 - 7:04 am

The next full moon will come in the day time do I have to put it outside

maida March 10, 2020 - 12:31 am

Does it only work with clear quartz? what if I put different stones such as citrine? Red jasper? and rhodonite? around the jar or in it? will it charge those as well? during the full moon?

Aiyana Fraley August 12, 2020 - 12:37 pm

It will work with any crystal you use. Go wild and charge all of them.

Asma April 7, 2020 - 2:23 pm

Is it mandatory to pick your moon water before sunrises ?

Aiyana Fraley August 12, 2020 - 12:36 pm

Not at all. You can leave it out under the moon light for a few hours and pick it up before the sun rises. Follow your intuition.

G April 7, 2020 - 6:11 pm

Can I try everyday or only on full moon

Aiyana Fraley August 12, 2020 - 12:35 pm

On the full moon it will be more energized with the moon’s power.

Ella May 31, 2020 - 9:48 pm

How long can you keep moon water?

Aiyana Fraley August 12, 2020 - 12:26 pm

Keep in the fridge for as long as you would keep your drinking water.

Kenny October 30, 2020 - 3:52 am

What do you think it will hold for a blue moon? Also how many hours do i need to leave it in order so it can become moon water? Can i drink all of it or a phew sips? Can i use it to manifest what i want by making it to tea and drink it?

Aiyana Fraley April 29, 2021 - 1:52 pm

Hi Kenny, good question. All of the elements of that full moon become imprinted in the essence of the water during your full moon water ritual. So if you are making moon water each month, you can label it October Blue Moon 2020. Take a look at that month’s full moon reading for the energy that is empowering that cycle. For example, this last moon in April was a Pink Moon and in Scorpio. It’s vibration was powerful for transformation, and pushing forward. Obstacles that were a hinderance prior to this Pink Moon in Scorpio are no longer as its energy is strong enough to break through. Actually, “break throughs” and awakenings are eminent with this moon. So when you make moon water those vibrations are in the water and when you use it, in any of the creative ways that come to you whether a bath, tea, spray or other, you are taking that essence in. You can drink a few sips of that water each day throughout the month or make tea with it. You can make drinking this moon water your ritual to connect to its vibration. Blessings!

AYUSHI November 22, 2020 - 9:14 am

Hi! Thanks for writing such useful post. But I am having a bit of a doubt:-
It’s winters here. So can the Moon water be warmed or heated a bit?
Will the Moon’s energy be lost from the water or not?

Aiyana Fraley April 29, 2021 - 1:41 pm

Hi Ayushi, this is a great question. The essence of the moon is captured in the water, so you can use it to make tea or add it to a warm bath. You can use it in cool drinks as well like making a lemonade or making a body mist and keeping it in the fridge during summer to use a cooling spray.

Marote Choramo July 24, 2021 - 9:25 am

I just chugged half a bottle of moon water. Will i be okay?

Aiyana Fraley September 21, 2021 - 11:51 pm

I like to use spring water but as long as it is clean you should be fine.

Sandi October 21, 2021 - 3:43 pm

Fraley…not too common…you could be related to my husband. His mother…Fraley…big family…off to indulge in my moon water

Aiyana Fraley January 2, 2022 - 12:53 pm

My husband’s ancestors from the Fraley lineage are from England UK area.

Rayla Page August 29, 2021 - 1:54 pm

Hi, does the moon water work even after it has been under the sun ?

Aiyana Fraley September 21, 2021 - 11:50 pm

yes it does.

Tuesday October 7, 2021 - 4:16 pm

Does it have to be a full moon to make the moon water and do I have to keep it outside when making it?

Aiyana Fraley January 2, 2022 - 12:52 pm

It doesn’t have to be a full moon. There are eight phases of moon and each one will have a different effect.
