A Spell to Bless Water

Many Wiccans keep a chalice of blessed water on their altar.  This allows for purification of any negative energy that might interfere with the rituals performed.  Try to obtain natural water from a spring if you can.  Blessing the water is easy. Put one hand over the water, and repeat the following prayer to the God and Goddess:
Divine Father, Mother Goddess,
Purify this water with your Divine powers,
Bless it with your light.
You can also add a little bit of salt to the water while blessing it – salt is good for purification of any object. Or you might want to insert a pentacle, or a blessed athame inside the chalice of water.
Although the blessed water is often just placed on the altar in a chalice or cup to represent the water element, it can have many other uses. You can use blessed water to prepare potions, to purify objects before enchanting them.  Blessed water is also a good tool for protection against demons and negative entities.
As a sign of respect for the God and Goddess invoked to bless the water, don’t throw the surplus of water away in a drain as you would if it were tap water.  Instead, use it as an offering at the foot of a tree, or to water an indoor plant.
