How To Make A Neroli Spritzer
This wonderful neroli hydrating spritzer is similar to a toner. But it is more suitable for normal, dry or sensitive skins.
This recipe is very versatile. Because this is a water based hydrating spritzer, you can add any ingredient you like. You can even add essential oils. However, the oil will float on the surface of the spritzer and you must shake it up every time you use the neroli spritzer.
When orange blossoms are distilled down, the byproduct is orange flower water. This is neroli essential oil. If you have aging or sensitive skin, Neroli and orange flower water are both perfect for this. Also those who suffer from broken capillaries can use this for a good result.
Another good product to add to fresheners or toners is aloe vera. Aloe vera has a wonderful anti-inflammatory property.
In this recipe we use vegetable glycerin. Vegetable glycerin is used to reduce the loss of moisture. You could also use hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid would even be more suitable.
Hyaluronic acid is a commercial product used in many branded anti-aging products. It does actually naturally occur in the skin. Hyaluronic acid can actually absorb many times it own weight in water. It also gives the skin its plumpness. Over time this quantity of hyaluronic acid in the skin reduces. This causes the formation of wrinkles and lines in the skin.
