Florida Water founded in 1808 is an ancient formula for a cologne that blends an array of floral essential oils in a water-alcohol base. It has become popular worldwide, not only because of its delightful fragrance but also because of the more than twenty uses attributed to it (skin lotion, rubdown for the sick, head aches, insect bites, after exercise, jangled nerves, soothes the scalp, head colds, tired feet, complexion care …). It is believed to have cleansing and protective properties and to attract Healing Spirits. Florida Water Peru is used by Shamans in Ayahuasca and other Ceremonies. We offer different sizes and also soap.
