Is there anything i can use other that alcohol? I'm a recovering alcoholic so buying tequila is probably a bad idea.
Never thought about it but my gut says to make a tea. Steep your ingredients in hot water and then let cool, pour in a bottle and treat like cologne. Without a preservative and depending on how you store it, your supply might be quick to mold, so small batch prep would be preferred. I've never personally tried this but I'd be interested to know your results. Hope that helps!

Is there anything you use 7 machos for with Santa muerte
Many people use it the same way as Florida Water, so as a type of "holy water" in order to bless and sweeten items / spaces in the name of Santa Muerte. You can use it as a replacement for incense, if you can't burn incense where you live. You can spray it over your altar, over an offering candle, or even over yourself before a period of prayer or petition. It is a popular cologne in Mexico that is sometimes associated with good luck, prosperity, and strength. Many people will say it is a favorite scent of Santa Muerte and will use it as an offering in and of itself, spraying the cologne over an altar for no other reason than for the Santa Muerte to enjoy it.

Greetings- I wanted to add that store bought Florida Water contains a high alcohol content. It will take the paint off your statues if you spray it them and wipe them off!
