Neroli Hydrosol is especially beneficial for uplifting emotions and improving elasticity of dry skin. It is best stored in refrigerator.
Neroli Hydrosol is produced during the essential oil distillation process and can be a valuable addition to your beauty regimen.
It is effective as a toner for all skin types as it is impregnated with water-soluble (hydrophilic) compounds that are not present in essential oils.
Soothing, anti-inflammatory carboxylic acids are found almost exclusively in a hydrosol and provide mild astringent capabilities while being non-drying.
Because of their gentleness, a hydrosol is particularly well suited for use with children, the elderly and those overcoming illness.
It is excellent for use with sensitive skin counteracting the drying effects of long airplane flights, air-conditioned rooms and cars.
The benefits of using hydrosols are especially noticeable when used daily.
