Refreshing orange flower water facial spritz

30 May, 2012

Summer is well and truly here, so here’s a refreshing botanical recipe that is simple to make and a delight to use.

Orange flower water is a wonderfully restorative remedy for the skin, and aromatherapists use its delicate scent to help treat stress. This refreshing spritz is ideal to use when travelling to revitalise the skin and energise the mind.


  • 85 ml (2¾ oz) distilled water
  • 2 tsp aloe vera juice
  • 1 tsp orange flower water
  • 1 drop propolis tincture
  • 1 drop lemon essential oil
  • 1 drop rosemary essential oil


Combine all the ingredients and decant into a sterilised bottle (preferably glass) with an atomiser spray. Shake well before each use.

Store in the refrigerator when not in use so the spritz stays fresh and cool. Use within 2 days.
