How To Make Holy Water

Posted on September 26, 2008

Hey, I figured since Halloween was coming up and there would be a lot more than usual messing with this supernatural stuff I’d figure that I’d advise you on one major way to fight off any unexplainable thing that comes your way.�

I know it’s not a ghost story but who knows it might help someone out in the near future.� One thing you must know before making it, though, is trusting a higher power, it may not be your God but you never know if it’s a God trying to look out for you.

Anyway, here is the Roman Catholic way of making Holy Water.

1. Place a handful of sea salt on sterilized glass.

2. Make the sign of the cross or raised palm of benediction over the salt and recite the exorcism of salt; ” God’s creature, salt of the Earth, I cast out the echo of evil by the living God, by the one true God, by the holy God, through whom all things have their being. May you be a purified, living, heavenly salt, a means of health for those who believe, a medicine for body and soul for all who make use of you. May all evil fancies be driven far from the place where you are sprinkled. And let every unclean spirit be repulsed by the power of almighty God.”

3. Recite the blessing of salt; “Almighty, everlasting God, I humbly appeal to your mercy and goodness to bless this creature, salt, that you have given for humankind’s use. May all who use it find in it a remedy for body and mind. And may everything that it touches be feed from uncleanness and any influence of evil through your holy name, Amen.”

4. Make the sign of the cross or raised palm of benediction over sterilized glass bowl of fresh spring water and repeat the exorcism of salt, exchanging the word salt for water.

5. Recite the blessing of water; “O God, who for man’s welfare established the most wonderful mysteries in the substance of water, hearken to this prayer, and pour forth your blessing on this element. May this creature of yours, when used in your mysteries and endowed with your grace, serve to cast out demons and to banish disease. May everything that this water touches delivered from all that is unclean and hurtful; through your holy name. Amen.”

6. Now pour the salt into the water in the form of a cross, saying; “May this heavenly salt and water unite in harmony, in the name of the Almighty God, Amen.”

And there ya go.� Practice it a couple times before making a batch or two, you never know when you might need it.

    thanx man but first can u tell me how to sterilize glass? im kinda confused about the sterilized glass part. and wen u exorcise the salt do u have to clear ur mind of evil thoughts just like a real exorcism?

  2. Mr. C says:

    Sorry about that, but sterilizing the glass is easy. You just have to make sure it is germ free (like use a germ killing soap or something of that nature) and preferable has never been used for anything else before. You have to make sure that it is as clean as you can possibly get it. Oh and the by glass I meant glass plate but a china saucer will also work as well. Once you have finished making it as well just pour it into a glass bottle.

    You are correct when you exorcise the salt, you must keep your mind on the task at hand and forget any evil thoughts you may have.

  3. Mr. C says:

    Oh and in a week I will be posting another way of making holy water for the alchemists and people who practice high magic out there to use.

  4. mark says:

    ok thnx. and btw any pointers on how to clear my mind?

  5. Liderien says:

    The best advice is to not put yourself in any situation that would call for “holy water” in the first place.

  6. Jackie says:

    Thanks Mr C for caring enough about others to post this.

    Always wondered how holy water was made. Can anyone bless a house with holy water or does it have to be a priest?

  7. jessica shelton says:

    i have been living in my houses for almost ten years. I have alaways felt save up intill a year ago. It stays veary cold in my room eventhought we keep it a 80 in the fall. it feels like some one is staring you down when you are in there, I have heard things that sound like someone beather in my ear. but when i look up onone would be there. It scars me os bad that I will not sleep in my room at night. I wouldn’t even go in my room alone.


    • Meri says:

      Simply ask for them to leave, this your home, not theirs. Simply put, but strongly worded, mean it. Yes. You can bless your home and your room. When the temperature changes, he is gone.

  8. Dylan says:

    I would like to add real quick that it’s fine and dandy to use this ritual when you have no access to a Catholic priest, but there is no “guarantee” that the blessing will be bestowed by the Deity. On the onther hand, the Deity may very well grant it. But it’s best to rely on the Catholic priest’s blessing– it’s much more powerful. Even most Protestant ministers come to the Catholic priests in the most serious cases of exorcism, due to the sacramental power conferred on them at ordination, which the Protestant ministers do not have.

    Also, in the Christian tradition, the Cross (especially the crucifix– a cross with an image of Christ on it) is the ultimate symbol to repel evil spirits, even some of the most powerful. Any cross will do, but even more so, one blessed by a priest.

    There are also some verbal adurations, such as the invocation of St. Michael (who is the archangel who has power over the Devil.) Believe me, once I saw an exorcism in India, and the cross and holy water, and the prayer to St. Michael were most effective.

  9. Dylan says:

    Another thing. I always keep a bottle of holy water (blessed by a priest) at my bedside, and a blessed crucifix above my bed. There is a reason for that. Once I was plagued by extremely frequent night terrors, which is a normal psychological thing, but in many cultures is considered related to/caused by a certain kind of demonic entity, known as Lilli, or a succubi. They are the spawn of the arch-demoness Lillith, consort of the fallen angel Sammael and also the Devil himself. Anyway, my devout mother recommended the cross and holy water (this was when I was yet a young kid). So I sprinkled by bed with holy water and put the blessed crucifix above my bed.

    Never had another night terror again.

    In the Jewish tradition the Magen David symbol, if drawn on the ground, and if one steps inside no demonic entity may harm them. Just what I heard.

    However, an encircled “Magen David” (not really a Magen David) with the circle touching all points, is the exact opposite. Supposedly, It basically makes a portal to Hell, and can be used to conjure up demons (don’t try it!).

  10. kayla says:

    i heard of a prayer, to make a certain place holy by saying this prayer, i can not rember the prayer or where to find it, i was wondering if you could help me

  11. cathy says:

    What prayer would be effective if one is of the jewish faith. Also is there a different method of making holy water?

  12. cathy says:

    Thanks for the ideals you have given.

  13. Bryan Robertson says:

    Umm, i dont know if anyone else has noticed, but read Jessica Sheltons story, notice all the mistakes in her writng, i know i sound crazy but i dont think that they were an accident, if you take all the mistakes all i know is the first word i spelled with the letters was SAVE! maybe someone else can figure it out.

  14. Anthony A says:

    an easy way is to buy or use an empty glass bottle that has been washed well and fill it with holy water after mass just make sure to ask an usher or authority first to be polite they usually say yes

  15. Jennifer says:

    yes my sister is having a demonic entity she was told she needed a read and white candle with st micheals on it that that would also help. An that they needed to get out not stay!!

  16. Lorin Beach says:

    Hey Mr. C,,
    What is the other method of making Holy Water? Thanks!

  17. Sinny of Null says:

    Thanks Mr.C, this has been the most helpful thing i’ve found. My friends and I are looking for things to keep us safe while using an Ouija board, even though the only spirits we’ve yet contacted are friendly and humorous. We still take every precaution to ensure that nothing bad happens, and this is even more helpful, especially since we do our session things each weekend. ^-^ I thought i needed rose petals, but sea salt is much easier for me to come by, since we use it in our home much more.

  18. Bishop K says:

    Sinny of Null ::

    You are messing with FIRE playing with an Ouija Board –You open Spiritual Doors of
    Demonic Nature that no amount of Holy Water will control because you are in direct
    disobedience to the Word of God.. Read your Bible and be filled with God’s Holy Spirit and
    study to show yourself approved

  19. Karen M. says:

    That sounds alot like making “eau lustrale” or “holy water” to cleanse objects before casting spells in witchcraft!

  20. Holy Hunter says:

    there is no other way to make holy water? I mean when demons or creatures try to get into your house to kill you or your family you can’t make any then and there?I mean you can’t run to preists and churches all the time. also does salt work that good as it is stated? I want to start taking out evil and helping people.

  21. Cam005 says:

    I thought only a priest can make holy water can i actually make it myself

  22. nathan says:

    anyone can make holy water. i dont go for all of that ” the priest has special powers” stuff. any person who is a christian can make holy water. or for that matter holy oil. EVERY person who is saved and fillled with the Holy Ghost an bless any items. it is no stronger when a priest blesses it, it doesnt work any better or any faster,it doesnt “burn” demons with any more fire…
    come on christians, start acting like we got the holy ghost power! he didnt die for us to have to go through “special people”, but through him alone!
    bless you own water

  23. Angyll says:

    Responding to Bryan’s Message. Jessica, using an old code, has spelt “save tessa”. thought you would like to know.
