Another name for Kananga water is Agua de Kananga. You can use this healing water for rituals of purification, healing and for creating good luck. Distilled from Ylang Ylang wood, it is used mainly in Africa and South America. The scent is spicy and sweet at the same time.
Kananga water can be considered a slightly heavier and “masculine” variation on Florida water, which is also available in the museum shop (both by itself and as a part of a larger energy cleansing kit).
Please be aware that Kananga water is flammable. Be careful with the skin and eyes while using it, and be aware that it is not suitable for internal use.
The exhibition Healing Power presents healing traditions across the world. The curators have brought objects from the Arctic to South America together with work by contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst and Marina Abramović.
Healing Power introduces a range of ritual specialists and healing practices that are important to many people around the world. The range is very wide: from winti and ayahuasca to shamans and witches.
The exhibition will be on at the Tropenmuseum until June 2022.
