You may have seen commercial Florida water on store shelves and wondered what it is. Florida Water was invented as a cologne and "cure all" in the early 1800s and was widely used in America. The state of Florida hadn't been colonized by the US yet (it had been by Spain), but fables of Ponce de Leon and his search for the fountain of youth in the territory he named Florida (which meant "the flowery") were used for marketing the cologne. While used across many spiritual traditions, it became a staple in Voodoo, Santeria, and Hoodoo practices. Slaves in that time had to hide their spiritual practices under the guise of Christianity, and we think commercial Florida Water was one of the ways they did that. There's definitely room for cultural appropriation in its use, so it is important to be mindful of the ways in which you use it, and stick to your own traditions and culture while doing so.
