 Based on our famous wild naturally fallen Palo Santo, this spray was originally designed for a client of mine who gives traditional ceremonies. In his tradition the curanderos are often perfumeros.

Palo santo para limpiar tu casa de la mala energia, palo santo para la buena suerte
[traditional South American curandero proverb: Palo santo to cleanse your house of bad energy, palo santo for good luck]

Palo Santo belongs to the same family as frankincense and myrrh (Burseraceae). Its use reportedly dates back to the Inca era for its spiritual purifying properties. Use remains traditional in South America, especially in Peru and Ecuador. According to local customs, it is particularly efficient against mala energía: bad energy.

In Peru, shamans and traditional curanderos light use Palo Santo  in the the "energy field" of ritual participants to "clear misfortune, negative thought imprints, expel 'evil spirits' and bring good fortune".

Perfumeros & Agua florida

A perfumero*a a is a type of curandero*a (ritual healer in different South and Central american healing tradition) who employs scents of fragrant plants for healing, repelling bad energies, or attracting good ones.

A perfumero*a*s will often create their own aguas floridas, single or mixed botanicals macerated and soaked in alcohol, which they use in their rituals.

Some standardized blends are also sold under the name Agua de Florida, since the early 1800's. By far most Aguas (de) Florida sold in the market are produced with synthetic or low quality aromatics. Here, we make a radically different choice: using only the highest quality 100% pure naturals available to prepare our in house Agua floridas.

Florida, here, is the adjective of flor, flower, so the name means ‘floral water’ or ‘flowered water’. The verb Florecer means of course to blossom, but also "to make whole, to flourish”.

Through the use of agua florida in the ritual process, it is thought that the ritual's receiver, well...  receives the vital force, awareness, and protection of the plant so that s/he can in turn blossom.

Aguas floridas have become important tools in contemporary magick, yoga or neoshamanic movements. They can also be used for personal benefits outside of collective rituals.

Their concentration in aromatics (similar to an Eau de toilette) means they can also be used as a light perfume. 

I regularly and happily design new Agua florida's for the tastes and purposes of my clients. Don't hesitate to contact me in case it is something you might be interested in.
