Lao New Year - blessing water

During Lao New Year every household and temple will prepare special water for blessings to be applied to family and friends as well as to be sprinkled on to Buddha statues and other items you may want to bless.

In its most basic form it can simply be plain water.  However, more often it includes a combination of fresh flowers, perfume, and melted wax.
