Here’s How to Properly Store Moon Water [DIY Tips]

Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

Moon water is the perfect ally to bring calmness and healing but also to attract blessings we are craving.

But how should you store moon water?

Why it is so important to store your moon water properly? Here comes a bit of the background about moon water and how to store it to enjoy its properties and energy in the long term!

The Man and the Moon

From the moment that it looked at the sky and was aware of its existence, the human being has felt special magic from the Moon. Our magnificent satellite provides its energy to all living creatures on the planet, which is why it has been worthy of numerous songs, legends, and rituals that celebrate each of its phases, and of these, the most powerful has always been the full moon.


  • Storing your moon water properly will preserve its energies and its magic.
  • Keep the jar closed and keep it in a dark, dry place.
  • Don’t leave the jar open for longer than necessary as the energy will fade away.

The energy that it offers us during this phase is ideal to recharge us, give greater strength to future rituals, and make our spirit grow, and the best of all is that we can harvest it, thanks to the full moon water harvesting ritual.

This art was practiced by our ancestors, who passed this knowledge from one generation to another, so that today, we could prepare to receive the next full moon and collect this precious liquid with which to bring blessings to our homes.

Water is a container of energy

Whether it is thoughts, intentions, feelings, or astrological events, water absorbs the energy contained in these and reserves it for later use, to help you expel the bad energies accumulated in a place, for example.

Because of this, people perform this beautiful and mystical ritual in which they charge a pot of water with the natural positive energies of the Moon, which they will then turn into a tool that they will use to magnify rituals that will change their lives for the better.

Water and its magic from ancient times

For the wise witches of the village or those who possessed a wide and deep knowledge of the properties hidden in nature, the Moon was not only a source of inspiration, but also a luminous beacon that guided them in the preparation of filters, rituals, and spells of the most varied types.

Today I would like to talk to you about how to get lunar water. Water charged with lunar energies is very beneficial and healing. It promotes physical and spiritual balance and instills a sense of oneness with the entire cosmos.

How to create it (in short!)?

  • To create moon water, you will need a crystal, like quartz
  • Remember to create your lunar water during the full moon or in the days leading up to this moon phase (waxing moon).
  • Place your crystal in a glass container and cover it with water (preferably from the source, otherwise tap water is fine too).
  • At sunset, place the container on a windowsill, or outside the front door, in a corner well lit by the Moon. You should remove it before the Sun rises, otherwise, you risk nullifying the beneficial effects of the Moon on the water previously charged.

How to store moon water?

When you are done you can extract the crystal and store the water in a bottle in the dark. Being fully energized, it can be drunk whenever you need it, or when you feel “drained” to a low level and want to receive strength, healing, and protection.

The importance of storing moon water properly

In order to keep its quality and its properties intact, you should store it properly as suggested above. Don’t forget to close the bottle and to keep it in a dark and fresh place. Don’t leave the bottle open for longer than necessary as it will let the energy fade away.

Does moon water expire?

It depends! If you use rainwater, it might expire after a few weeks, and the same might happen with sea or river water. If you use fresh water from a natural spring it can last up to 60 days! But, if you use such water, I don’t think it is going to last very long as you will drink it to let its energies pervade you from the inside!

CleanlinessEnsure the container is clean and free from any residue or contaminants
LabelingLabel the container with the date and lunar phase when the water was collected
Storage LocationStore the moon water in a cool, dark place to preserve its energy
DurationMoon water is typically used within a month, so consider its freshness
Intention SettingSet intentions for the moon water’s purpose before storing it

Tips and trick for fresh, powerful moon water

I highly recommend making moon water at each full moon and using it right away for better results and to enjoy its benefits and properties at their best. If you don’t need the energy of the full moon but you want to use moon water to boost a certain aspect of your life, that’s totally fine!


Just choose the right moon phase and then use it right away, exactly the way you would do if it was full moon water. The process is the same, even if the desired outcome is different for each one of you!

If I buy moon water, does it expire?

Yes. I see many products with an expiration date and this has a very easy explanation. Being products created in huge quantities at the time, they won’t be as fresh and energized as the one you start using after a night under the moonlight! That’s why I suggest giving it a try! It’s easy, it’s powerful, and it’s free!
