How to Make Holy Water by Yourself

holy water


Many religions use holy water for purification, protection and blessing. It is usually consecrated by a priest or someone in a similar position in a church and is holy water only when it has been consecrated. Therefore, water consecrated by yourself is not necessarily “holy water”. However, if you want to make your own holy water that is sacred to you, here are some things you can do.

Gather and consecrate your salt.

You must make a holy salt before you can make a holy water, so consecrate the salt first. And for your information, the salt is mainly used for preservation. Just because it’s holy water doesn’t mean it lasts forever! Here is the blessing for the salt: “The blessing of the Almighty Father be upon this creature of salt, and keep all evil and obstacles from it, and let in all good, for without Thee man cannot live. Therefore I consecrate Thee and call you to help me.” – The Key of Solomon, Book II, Chapter 5

Read Psalm 103 aloud.

If you don’t have a Bible handy, no problem! That’s what wikiHow is for! Bless the LORD, my soul, and what is in me, his holy name! Praise the LORD, my soul, and do not forget the good he has done for you: who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from ruin, who crowns you with grace and mercy, who makes your mouth happy , and you will grow young again like an eagle. The LORD creates righteousness and judgment for all who suffer injustice. He made his ways known to Moses, and the children of Israel to his deeds. The LORD is merciful and gracious, long-suffering and abounding in kindness. He will not always quarrel nor keep anger forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins and does not repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, he shows his mercy to those who fear him. As far as morning is from the evening, he leaves our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him. For he knows what a creature we are; he remembers that we are dust. A man is like grass in his life, he blooms like a flower in the field; when the wind blows over it, it is never there, and its place no longer knows it. But the grace of the LORD endures forever and ever for those who fear him, and his righteousness for children’s children for those who keep his covenant and remember his commandments to do them. The LORD has prepared his throne in heaven, and his kingdom reigns over all. Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty heroes, who carry out his commands, that the voice of his word be heeded! Praise the LORD, all his hosts, his servants, who do his will! Praise the LORD, all his works, in all the places of his dominion! Praise the LORD, my soul!

Get natural water.

If possible, get your water from a nearby lake, stream, or river. Try to avoid tap water, as it may have added chlorine or fluoride. But if you got your water from nature, you should filter it first – you don’t want cloudy holy water!

Take your holy salt and sprinkle it in the water.

As you do this, repeat the following words from Key of Solomon, Book II, Chapter 5: “I exorcise you, O water creature, by Him who created you and gathered you in one place so that the dry land appeared, may you uncover all the deceptions of your enemies, and may you cleanse from the world of phantasms all defilements and filth of the spirit so that they cannot harm me, by the power of the Almighty who lives and reigns until the time of times. Amen.”

Say prayers used by Catholic ministers.

You have two options to choose from: Prayer #1: Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. God’s creature Salt, I cast out demons from you in the name of the living God, the true God, the holy God and the God by whom Eliseus poured you into the spring of water, to heal you of your barrenness. May you be a purified salt, a means of health to those who believe, and medicine of body and soul to all who use you. May all the dark spirit’s evil thoughts, its malice and cunning remain far from the place where you have been scattered. And turn away all unclean spirits by Him who will come to judge both the living and the dead and the world with fire. Amen. Prayer #2: Almighty Eternal God, we call on you to bless with your grace and goodness this creature of salt that you have given us for the benefit of mankind. May all who use it find healing in their bodies and minds. And may everything it touches or is sprinkled upon be free from contamination and from all influences of the evil spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Exorcise the water.

More words! So, to purify the water and rid it of demons and impurities (yes, it’s a kind of exorcism!): God’s creature, water, I exorcise the demon in the name of the Lord God, in the name of Jesus Christ his Son, our Lord and in the name of the Holy Spirit. May you be pure water, empowered to cast out the power of the enemy and also to damn the enemy himself with his fallen angels. We ask you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, who came to judge the living and the dead and the world with fire.

Complete the ritual.

As you sprinkle the last of the salt into the water, say: Let this salt and water mix; in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. When you have sprinkled a few teaspoons of the holy salt into the water and it has completely dissolved, the ritual ends with another prayer. You have three options again: Prayer #1: Oh God, who has created the most wonderful mysteries in the element of water for the benefit of mankind, hear our prayer and bless this element, which is now being prepared through various cleansing rituals. May this creature of yours, blessed by your goodness and used in your mysteries, serve to banish demons and disease. May everything that is sprinkled with this water in the homes and assemblies of your believers be cleansed from all impurities and pain. Let no unclean breath dwell there, nor taint of corruption; let all plans of the lurking enemy fail. The blessing of this water shall drive away all that is contrary to the safety and peace of the occupants of this house, so that by invoking your name they may obtain the well-being desired and be protected from every danger; through Christ our Lord. Amen. Prayer #2: LORD, source of irresistible power and King of an indestructible empire, conqueror ever glorious; who subdues the strength of the adversary, tames the flare-up of his anger, and valiantly suppresses his malice; we ask you in reverence and humility, O LORD, to consider this creature of salt and water, to illuminate it with the light of your goodness, and to bless it with the dew of your grace; so that whenever it is spattered and your holy name is invoked, it averts every attack of the unclean spirit and dispels all the terrors of the serpent’s venom. Grant to us who ask for your grace that the Holy Spirit is with us wherever we are; through Christ our Lord. Amen. Prayer #3: Lord, who for the salvation of mankind has built your greatest mysteries around this cloth, in your goodness hear our prayers and pour the power of your blessings into this cloth prepared through many purifications. Let this thy creature be a vessel of divine grace to ward off demons and diseases so that whatever is sprinkled with it in the houses and buildings of the believers may be cleansed from all unclean and harmful things. Let no morbid spirit, no depraved atmosphere dwell in these places; so that all plans of the hidden enemy are crossed. Anything that might endanger the safety and peace of those who live here shall be put to flight by this water, so that the health bestowed upon us by the invocation of Thy holy name may be secured against all attack. Through you the Lord, Amen.

Use your holy water.

However, if your water is for a specific purpose, you could add a few more things. A little chrism (anointing oil) is added to holy water intended for baptism, while Gregorian water contains small amounts of ash, wine, and salt (used only in consecrated churches). If you want real holy water, you can get it in most churches around Easter.

Choose the type of water.

Different types of water belong to different rituals. Morning dew is used for healing and beauty, spring water for blessing and purification, rainwater for fertility and abundance, and seawater for exorcisms. What kind of water do you want to use? Collect and store the water in a non-metal container. If you want, you can leave it outside to absorb the sunlight, moonlight, or starlight.

Throw a piece of silver in the bowl.

As long as it’s silver, it’s fine. It could be a coin, a ring, a chain, or any other piece of silver. The metal is silver, not the color! Leave it in the bowl until your ritual is complete.

Begin to recite your sacred spells.

These should be said monotonously and evenly, like a chorus. Choose the one that best suits your purpose: Water and earth / Where it falls / No spell or evil intention holds / Nothing that is not in accordance with mine / As my word so shall it be! This spell is used for cleansing and spiritual purification. Be cleansed / The cleansing of all fans be yours / Health to you, health to him / But not to your female enemy. This spell is used for newborns (Celtic origin). God bless your eye / A drop of wine on your heart / The mouse sits in the bush / And the bush is on fire. This spell is used to ward off negative energies (also of Celtic origin).

Add herbs.

You can either stop here or continue depending on how you want to use the holy water. Add herbs like Jonannis to bless a house or a sick person, verbena leaves before a ceremony, stir with the branch of a sacred tree, or add rose petals to unite the object to the earth. It depends on you!! Holy water can serve many purposes. It can be drunk to protect against evil or disease, or it can be splashed on an object (a house or even a piece of furniture) to purify it.
