Organic Orange Blossom Hydrosol has been blended with alcohol free Witch Hazel Hydrosol and coconut derived Glycerine to create a nourishing facial tonic that softens, hydrates and tones the skin. This tonic is best used after cleansing to help tighten pores, remove any make up residue, dirt and oil, replenish skin cells and promote a soft, smooth complexion.
Why Orange Blossom Hydrosol ?
Orange Blossom hydrosol has a beautifully floral and sweet aroma, created from distilling the blossom from the bitter Orange Tree. It is slightly more floral than it's essential oil counterpart, Neroli. Orange Blossom is renowned for it’s many uses and benefits, it is a natural astringent, contains anti-microbial properties and is soothing, softening and cleansing for the skin. It helps to lock in moisture, balance and restore the skin's natural PH whilst brightening dull and tired skin.
Why Witch Hazel Hydrosol ?
Witch Hazel is an antioxidant and an astringent. It has been used medicinally to aid various skin ailments, reduce inflammation, promote healing and fight bacteria. Due to its high tannin content it has strong skin toning actions.
What is a Hydrosol ?
Hydrosols are botanical extracts that are harvested using the traditional method of steam distillation, the same method used to make most essential oils. Hydrosol's are also known as Floral Waters, Distillates, Hydrolats or Aromatic Waters. The aromatic waters used are produced by distilling Orange Blossom and Witch Hazel leaves and bark.
I will be looking at offering refills too of this product so If you have already purchased a toner and would like another i will hopefully be able offer it with an aluminium cap so you can re-use your spray top and save on plastic. This toner contains no preservatives so it is essential that a spray top is used to ensure it stays fresh and reaches the end of its shelf life (frequent exposure to air/cotton pads can contaminate the toner).
