Florida Water Cologne is an all purpose blessing in a bottle. It has been in use for over 200 years and it is still just as vital today. It is a staple in many different spiritual traditions. In my post Bless your soul with Florida Water I talk about how ” it is used everywhere from Peru to Italy to Surinam for sacred blessings. People wear it as a cologne like the name implies, or in any multitude of other ways. It seems to have undercurrents of lemon, lavender and bergamot. It’s a sweet citrus blend that is truly delightful.”
