Orange Blossom Water – alternative to witch hazel

I first came across Orange Blossom Water (oil of neroli) being pitched as a drink.
It is used in Lebanon to make a refreshing hot tea with sugar. I tried it in a pitcher of
cold water loaded up with ice and it was a superb answer to a hot day.

Reading up on it I discovered that OBW has numerous skin benefits. Given that
it's about 10-15 times cheaper than witch hazel for me, I have started to use it
as a spritz after a shave...and I swear to make my face feel like a million bucks.


Just thought I'd pass it on.

I’ve been using Orange blossom water in a mario badescu spritz spray set that is nice. I use them whenever, its pretty funny.. i walk by grab a bottle depending on my mood and spritz a bit. One of the “perks” of WFH 😂.

not inexpensive usually but i got it on a sale. THE FACIAL SPRAY COLLECTION
  • Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater (4 fl oz)
  • Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea (4 fl oz)
  • Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender (4 fl oz)
  • Facial Spray with Aloe, Sage and Orange Blossom (4 fl oz)
 
That sounds great, I already use rosewater which I find has just as good performance as witch hazel but with a better scent
 
Wow! Where is it sold??
I got mine at a department store that sells a lot of different stuff.
It was in the food and spices section. I would try in a Lebanese supermarket
if you have one near you. Mine came from Beirut from a company called Cortas
(cortasfood.com)

Worth bearing in mind that a number of expensive potions use this as an ingredient
but this is a cheap hack that cost me about $1.50 for a 300ml bottle

I have a picture but something is wrong with the server, can't upload.
