Moon Water: Using Your Windowsill to Harness Lunar Energy

  • 1 Bowl or Jar Glass or Ceramic


  • Water Fresh water, preferably from a natural source.
Optional – Use only One
  • A Few drops Essential Oil
  • 1 Pinch Salt


  • To begin, find a clean and clear container that is suitable for holding water. Glass or ceramic containers are ideal as they are non-toxic and do not contain any chemicals that could leach into the water. Fill the container with fresh water, ideally from a natural source such as a stream or a well.
    Water, A Few drops Essential Oil, 1 Pinch Salt
  • Next, find a windowsill that is directly facing the full moon. If your windows do not face the direction of the moon, you can place the container on a table or other flat surface that is as close to the window as possible. The closer the container is to the window, the more direct exposure it will have to the moon's energy.
  • Once you have found a suitable spot for the container, place it on the windowsill and allow it to absorb the moon's energy for several hours. Ideally, the water should be left on the windowsill from sunset to sunrise, but even a few hours of exposure to the moon's rays can be beneficial.
  • While the water is absorbing the moon's energy, it is important to set your intention for what you want the water to be used for. Whether you want to use the water for ritual purification, cleansing, or healing, be clear and specific about your intention. You can speak your intention out loud or simply hold it in your mind.


When the water has been exposed to the moon’s energy, bring it inside and use it in your rituals and ceremonies. You can drink it, use it to anoint yourself or your tools, or incorporate it into a spell or ritual.
Remember to always be respectful and mindful of the water, and to give thanks to the moon for its blessings.
