Greetings and Merry Meet!
Angel Water, or otherwise known as Aphrodite Water, has been a traditional recipe passed down in my family. However, my grandmother called it el agua de Angel. After many years and research, and much to my surprise, I came across it in different writings but all the same recipe. It was a thrilling find.
El agua de Angel was a face toner and bath water in my family, but through my research I learned that it is often used in beauty spells and aphrodisiacs. Made a lot of sense when I found that out. Lol. Many of my aunts found good husbands.
Other than to inspire love, it can also be used to cleanse the love between a couple. As well as cleansing for self-love.
My grandmother used to create the recipe using floral water and an infusion of the leaves and roots. Blending them together just right to create the tonic. It is a longer process, but the smell was enchanting and fresh.
The recipe consists of mostly Myrtle. A small tree, often with white, pink to purple flowers. My grandmother used the flowers, leaves, and stems. It is this tree that invoked the magical properties of love and beauty. In my studies, this is also a sacred tree to Aphrodite. Depending on how much your making, make certain that the recipe has a little more than half of Myrtle in it.

(using floral water & infusions)
Myrtle flowers, leaves, and stems
There is no definite measurement. This is because the maker of this tonic has to judge it by smell. The way I see it, your heart will know when the fusion is perfect.

(Using essential oils)
21 drops of Myrtle
15 drops of Neroli
9 drops of Rose
Again this is not a definite measurement. You will need to call it by heart.
So have fun with this. And enjoy!
