Add your salt to the water – 2 parts water to 1 part salt. Place your cross beside your water. Now pray over your water using these prayers. Say them in Latin, the translation is provided so that you will know what you are actually saying..
In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen
In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
OUR FATHER, Who art in heaven hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Amen.
AVE MARIA, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Domini nostri, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
HAIL, MARY, full of grace; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of our Lord, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Combine alcohol in a rocks glass over ice. Fill with tonic water, then add one dash of grenadine. Be sure the drink is served with the tonic still bubbling.

Note: I don’t see any reason why this couldn’t be used as a substitute for Holy Water when working with a Deity or Higher Power who appreciates alcohol as an offering.
You can use the power of the elements to create holy water.
Take a large, clean, open-top container and put it outside on the ground when you know there is going to be a thunder storm. The water you collect will be “blessed” by the four elements.
- Air, the wind
- Fire, the lighting
- Earth, there will always be a bit of dirt from the ground.
- Water, the rain
Note: The water will also take on additional properties. For example, if the sun comes out after the storm, there will be a solar influence, if the moon reflects into it – a lunar aspect, and special blessings if the reflection of a rainbow is seen within it.
Tonic waters containing the energies of the moon embody very powerful healing benefits that bring about integral balance and wholeness throughout the body, mind and soul. Clear quartz crystal catalyses the absorption of lunar energies as well as amplifies the healing benefits.
Wait for a clear night, preferably on or right before the full moon. Put your crystal in a clear glass and cover with one cup of purified water. Check an almanac for the exact time of sundown on the day you have chosen.
At sundown, place the glass out of doors in a moonlit place (cover the glass with clear plastic wrap). Remove the glass at dawn. The water is now filled with lunar potency. Drink the moon water every morning to prepare your body, mind and spirit for the stress of the day.
