HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care

  • It has a slight astringency which makes it desirable for mature skin. Use in facial sprays, toners, creams, lotions and serums.
  • The slight astringency of Orange Blossom Hydrolat also makes this desirable to use in products for acne prone skin. Irritated skin will be calmed and soothed.
  • It is an excellent toner and can be used after a cleanser or just as a refreshing facial spray any time of the day. The scent is delightful and known to relax and relieve stress.
  • It helps to keep the skin moisturised and smooth. Use Orange Blossom Hydrolat in after sun products for its calming effects and hydration.
