Florida water is a cologne water that is most commonly used in spiritual work for cleanses, protection and blessings.
The Florida Water that we carry at our Alpha Omega Store is sourced by the original manufacturers; Murray & Lanman. In the 1880s and 1890s Murray & Lanman Florida Water was advertised as “The Richest of all Perfumes” and “The most Popular Perfume in the World”.
While it began as common toilette water in the 19th century, it grew in popularity by spiritual workers of various cultures and backgrounds.
Florida water consists of a mixture of water, alcohol and essential oils. It has a strong citrus scent, as “sweet orange” consists of its basis, and includes essentials oils such as lavender and clove.
