Pure orange blossom water has been used as a beauty treatment since antiquity. Nourishing and completely non-drying to the skin, it is a wonderful facial toner that regenerates and cleanses the skin. Orange Blossom supports the micro-circulation of the skin, improving general skin health and the complexion. Orange blossom is less well know than rosewater but offers equally impressive results. Use it once or twice a day to promote healthy, happy skin. Apply it undiluted to cotton wool, apply to the face and leave to dry. Ours is organic and 100% pure – free from alcohol, additives and preservatives. We love to keep a bottle in our handbag as a refreshing spritz for the face and hair. Orange blossom has a light refreshing aroma and has very calming qualities – it can even be used as a room spritz.
How pure organic orange blossom water is made: This aromatic water is steam distilled from fresh orange blossoms. The steam that passes through the blossoms, releases tiny aromatic particles and volatile oils from the flowers. The steam is cooled, creating a fragrant water with a film of orange blossom oil on the surface. This oil is orange blossom or neroli essential oil and the water left behind is orange blossom water. Organic orange blossom water has a naturally long shelf life due to it’s unique components and if stored out of direct sunlight will easily store well for a couple of years. True orange blossom water is the finest you can buy. Avoid synthetic orange blossom, made with water and added preservatives, additives and artificial fragrances.
