History of Florida Water

From Scarlett O’Hara to Solange Knowles, Florida Water has been mystifying and delighting generations since 1808.

Florida Water was introduced in New York City and sold in corner pharmacies as an everyday staple. The original formula and label—inspired by the enchanting properties of the famed Fountain of Youth—has remained unchanged for over 200 years.

In addition to its clean and refreshing fragrance, Florida Water has been used over the years to tone the skin, freshen the air, calm the nerves, relieve headaches, reduce fevers, prevent infection, and soothe an itching scalp.

In the book Gone with the Wind, Scarlett O’Hara was told by her mother that Florida Water was one of the only things “a lady may accept from a gentleman”. And as recently as 2018, Solange Knowles carried a bottle of Florida Water on the Met Gala’s red carpet. Talk about a spiritual fashion statement.

Florida Water, also known as Agua de Florida, is a popular cologne traditionally used in spiritual practices, especially in Latin American and Caribbean cultures. Here’s how people typically use it:

    • Add a few drops to your bath for spiritual cleansing.
    • Some people mix it with herbs or essential oils for added cleansing power.
  • Aura Cleansing:
    • Pour a small amount in your palm and rub it over your hands.
    • Gently sweep your hands over your body, visualising the removal of negative energy.
  • Space Cleansing:
    • Dilute with water and use it as a spray to cleanse your space or sacred objects.
    • Sprinkle or spray it in corners, around doorways, and windows to protect the home.
  • Protection Against Negative Energy:
