Named after the Italian Princess Nerola, the water is used for many beauty preparations, particularly as a skin tonic and cleanser.
Neroli is evergreen tree up to 10 metres high with glossy, dark green leaves and fragrant with flowers from which the essential oil of neroli is distilled. The by-product of distillation is the sweet, flowery water that has been popular for centuries. It was particularly popular in the 18th century when Napoleon insisted on being rubbed down with eau de cologne each day. Neroli water is one of the main ingredients.

Hydrolats are the aromatic waters produced by the steam distillation of botanical material, usually during the production of essential oils. Hydro means water and lat comes from the word for milk, because when fresh these waters can be cloudy or milky from the suspended soluble plant extracts.
Hydrolats are gentle and effective. They contain only the most water-soluble chemicals from the plant material plus microscopic drops of the essential oils. They may be used undiluted without problems but it is usually unnecessary as they are just as effective in dilution – less can be more! Generally calming and soothing.
Use hydrolats as facial spritzers. Either use 50/50 with purified water or undiluted.
Spray liberally around pets, cooking areas, bedrooms and other areas of your environment.
Add up to 100mls to an adult bath and 50mls to a child’s bath.
Soak a cloth in hydrosol and compress to ease everyday stresses and strains. For a cold compress use a cold cloth and for warm, use a warm cloth.
