How to Make Your Own Holy Water
Things You'll Need!
Containers for salt and water
Various religions use holy water for cleansing, protection, and blessings. Many people believe that holy water can only be truly sanctified by an ordained priest. This is wrong; your faith will determine how effective the holy water is.
(1) Gather and consecrate your salt.
You will need to create holy salt before you can create holy water, so consecrate the salt (i.e. make it sacred or holy) first. Take some pure salt (e.g., Kosher salt or natural rock salt with no added ingredients) and add it to a container, such as a small bowl or jar. Once you are ready to bless the salt, say your prayer. Personalize your prayer to fit the use of the holy water. It will be more effective if it is personalized towards the situation that you are using it for.
(2) Obtain some water from a natural source if possible.
If you can, get your water from a nearby lake, stream, or river. Try to stay away from tap water, since it may have additives such as chlorine and fluoride in it. However, if your water is obtained naturally, filter it beforehand. You don't want dirty holy water!
(3) Pour the salt into the water
Once you’ve cleansed both the salt and the water, the final step is to combine them. Add the salt to the water. As you pour in the salt, recite the following: “May this salt and water be mixed together; in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
(4) Bless the holy water
Once you’ve made your holy water, you can bless it using the following prayer: “Blessed are you, Lord, Almighty God, who deigned to bless us in Christ, the living water of our salvation."
(5) Use your holy water to bless your home and family
Once you’ve finished making your holy water, place it in the container of your choice, such as a small glass vial or plastic spray bottle. You can sprinkle it around different rooms in your home. We do not recommend using the holy water to perform exorcisms or deliverance sessions unless you are properly training in the method of deliverance or Rite of Exorcism.
