Citrus aurantium - Casablanca, Morocco
Princess of Nerola, Italy, introduced the essence of bitter orange tree as a fashionable fragrance by using it to perfume her gloves and her bath. Since then, the name of Neroli has been used to describe this orange blossom essence.
Neroli has a refreshing and distinctive, spicy aroma with sweet and flowery notes. Folks often buy the hydrosol instead of the essential oil to save a few dollars because it is very expensive and the true thing is a rare find.
Especially good for oily and mature skin types, neroli is a natural astringent and anti-bacterial tonic effective for detoxifying oily, congested and/or blemished skin. Its regenerative properties promote hydration, tone, and cellular regeneration.
Veriditas Hydrosols are micro-filtered and UV filtered for optimum shelf life. They keep a much longer shelf life (up to 5 years!) in the refrigerator, but only need to be stored out of sunlight and heat. Their labels suggest to store in a cool, dark place.
ABOUT VERIDITAS HYDROSOLSVeriditas Hydrosols are distilled in stainless steel stills and processed through certified organic methods in Europe – BIO, SIMPLE and ECOCERT. True hydrosols are not essential oils added to water; they are the bi-product of essential oil distillation. Hydrosols are also known as floral waters, hydrolates, flower waters or distillates. They contain all of the water-soluble elements of a plant, are very effective for skin care and are extremely safe. As they are a milder extract, hydrosols are suitable for all manner of applications where essential oils would be too strong. In most hydrosols there is less than 5% naturally occurring essential oil.
