How To Use Neroli Essential Oil

In this video, you will be shown how to make a cheap and effective skin freshener with neroli essential oil as its main ingredient, and how to properly apply it.

Today, I'm going to show you how to use neroli oil. Neroli essential oil is from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree, and it has a calming and uplifting fragrance. It's often used to treat broken capillaries, and is great for dry and sensitive skin.

Orange flower water is the by-product of distillation of neroli oil, and as neroli oil can be quite expensive, you can use orange flower water instead, it makes an excellent skin freshener. Today, I'm going to show you how to make a neroli skin freshener, using orange flower water instead of neroli water, as it's much more cost effective. So, for this, you'll need 95 ml orange flower water which we're using instead of neroli, 100 ml spray bottle, and 5 ml glycerine which is about a teaspoon.

So, step one, we're going to add 5 ml or a teaspoon of glycerine to your spray bottle, now glycerine is an excellent humectin, which means it attracts water from the air to the skin, so this skin freshener will have a slightly skin moisturizing property as well. And then, we're going to simply top off with your orange flower water, so I've already pre-measured some out here, and we're just going to pour that into the spray bottle. Glycerine is actually water soluble, so it will mix nicely in with your orange flower water, and then finally, just make sure you screw the cap on really, really tightly, and then give the bottle a shake, and you'll notice the glycerine mixing in, and then your skin freshener is ready to use.

I'm just going to show you how to use the neroli skin freshener with the help of my lovely assistant Claire. Now, this can be used as a refreshing spritz throughout the day, or you can use it before your moisturizer before the cleansing. Just simply close your eyes, and spray just one or two spritzes on, and you can use this over makeup as well, to refresh your makeup throughout the day.

And that's how you use neroli oil. .
