Orange blossom water has a multiplicity of uses. Produced using organically grown Moroccan neroli orange blossom, this natural toner has a beautiful aroma and as it's free from alcohol and artificial additives orange blossom water is suitable for all skin types.
It can be used as a skin cleanser, as an anti-ageing treatment, as a skin-toner and as a cooling after-sun. It also provides a gentle and completely natural way to encourage the skin to recover more quickly from spots, blemishes, small scars and acne. Orange blossom water is reputed to have a calming, steadying effect on the nerves and it can be used to add a lovely scent to essential oils or facial masks.
Applied to the skin, Orange Blossom Water has a refreshing, toning effect. It cleanses the pores and works as a gentle astringent that helps to remove excess grease without stripping the skin of its natural protective oils. Orange blossom water can therefore help people who suffer from acne or oily skin, but its all-natural formulation makes it suitable for all skin types.
Skin is naturally very slightly acidic and the citrus origins of this product help to retain that proper balance - keeping it healthy, supple and strong. This is in stark contrast to many soaps, which have alkali formulations that can cause skin to dry out.
Orange blossom water's ability to cool and moisturise the skin also make this natural product a useful after-sun treatment; it can revive skin that has been subject to strong UV light and drying winds.
Orange Blossom Water is best applied to the skin using a cotton wool pad or soft tissue. It should be used after washing, ideally in the morning and before bed. Do not rinse off after use. It can be followed with a natural moisturiser such as Marula Oil or Rosehip Oil.
When applying, be careful to avoid the eyes. Please note that Orange Blossom Water is for external use only.
- Our Orange Blossom Water is made from the Neroli flowers of the bitter orange tree (citrus aurantium amara), which are organically grown in Morocco. The fresh flowers are picked, added to pure, boiled water and then distilled to release the Neroli oil. This is then mixed with pure spring water to create the finished additive-free product.
Unlike many alternative products, our Orange Blossom Water is made without the addition of alcohol, glycerine, acids, colouring or any other additives.
We work exclusively with responsible, certified-organic farmers in Morocco. We ensure the producers receive a fair price for their efforts so that they can provide for their families and be confident of sustainable employment.
