'How to make moon water' is trending right now and just like mystics, those who practise witchcraft and astrologers will already know, the moon has a special kind of power.

The importance of full moons have been written into history, with many suggesting that there is a link between the phases of the moon and changes in symptoms of your mood.

What is moon water?

It might be obvious, but moon water is water that has had time to sit under the light of a full moon and soak up its power. Making moon water dates back to witchcraft and people have been making it for centuries.

There's also some evidence that a full moon can lead to less deep sleep and a delay in entering into REM (resting eye movement) sleep.

How do you make moon water?

Making moon water is pretty simple:

Choose a container or jar and try and think about something you want to manifest for later on.

Fill with water, preferably rainwater, but if you plan to drink it make sure that you use water that is safe to drink and use a cover (you can still drink it).

Expose it to the moonlight by placing it on a windowsill or anywhere it will absorb the light.

Say an affirmation or prayer and think about what you want to use the moon water for.

Incorporate some crystals for an extra 'charge'. Selenite, clear quartz, and moonstone are all great options.

Leave overnight.
