Water of Mars (War Water) Recipe
Psychic attack , something dark comes your way? Then Water of Mars will help you send these black shadows as far away from you as possible.
War Water, also known as Iron Water and Mars Water, is not native to hoodoo practices. Most likely, it is a European influence, as its name and purpose are derived from the Roman god of war, Mars. However, despite the fact that is it not historically traditional to hoodoo, War Water has earned such a prominate place in modern conjure it is worth talking about.
What is War Water?
Essentially, War Water is rust iron suspended in water. In its most basic form it is water in which cut iron has been allowed to oxidize and rust. The water and iron used depends on both the purpose of the concoction and the conjurer preparing it. To some conjurers the type of water does not matter, others will insist that it is necessary that you use thunderstorm water for the best results. Still others will insist on running water as the base, specifically water that runs in a direction away from you and your home. As for the iron used, some recipes call for cut nails, some coffin nails, and others railway spikes, depending on the purpose. Water of Mars (War Water) is a mighty tool that every witch should keep in hand. Water of Mars was used in folklore to treat anemia, however, modern scientific methods are far more capable to cure such medical conditions (and with less adverse effects). The Water of Mars is a simple yet powerful recipe.
Iron nails (if possible try to find cut iron nails)
On a Tuesday (the day of Mars) put the iron nails in the jar and fill the jar with water. Leave the nails inside the jar for at least 15 days in a cool place (preferably your refrigerator as you will prevent bacteria to be cultivated in the water). For the first 7 days leave the jar unopened and then open periodically as air will speed up the oxidation process of the nails. The secret for this recipe is oxidation.
Strain the water from the jar and use as needed. You can keep adding water to the original jar with the iron nails indefinitely and you will have an infinite supply of Water of Mars. In addition, you can summon the God Mars to bless your water with his powers.
At this time, other ingredients may be added to the mix. These ingredients might include additional iron, graveyard dirt, thorns, urine, rotting oak leaves, and/or spanish moss.
Spanish Moss is a flowering plant that grows on trees in the South. It has become a common additive in War Water. It rots well in water giving the concoction a putrid or *swampy*smell and also a nice black color, which some prefer.
Use Water of Mars :
To banish evil and remove negativity from your place – Sprinkle around your house
To protect you, your loved one and your property from future psychic and magical attacks
As additional aid in unbinding spells- Use it in your ritual to remove malevolent magic that has targeted you and your loved ones
To remove obstacles- When you feel that your road is blocked by unseen powers
For jinx removing- Add some drops in your bath along with a pinch of Black Salt and bathe
Black Salt can be added to Water of Mars for improved effects as the two ingredients will make a powerful duet against evil. However, I would like you to be aware that it is a very strong combination and if you use it in your property always use other protective ingredients with more mild effects afterwards. Burn lavender, myrrh and gardenia oils in an oil burner to seal your protective ritual and calm the atmosphere down after a fierce battle.
Unlike many gods of war, such as Ares, who is a primarily destructive and destabalizing force, Mars is military force meant to bring about peace. Like its namesake, War Water, is an offensive tool meant to bring peace back into ones life by causing discord in another's. Essentially, War Water's primary purpose is hostile foot track magic.
Most accounts call for War Water to be contained in a glass jar, which would be thrown onto an enemies porch or against their door, breaking, and leaving a sharp dirty mess for them to step in. The trick would cause dicord and stife for the person or family within and eventually drive the enemy away. However, if breaking a glass jar on someone's door step does not seem feasible to you, it is not a necessity.
*Be aware that as with many other magical recipes the same materials that are used for protection and good can be used for hexing and evil as well. All it matters it is not the material but your will and consciousness. Every spell you cast with a good will and a pure heart will return its benefit to you, every spell you cast to cause harm can, and eventually will, turn back to you. Beware of your intentions.
