At prices that can run sky high, the delicate scent of Neroli essential oil can seem just out of reach to many. Experiencing its rich pleasures elevates us beyond the ho-hum of mere everyday life. But at Modern Skyn Alchemy, we aim to help transform your daily life into something that is always special, bringing you finely crafted skin care, including the best that Neroli has to give.
Neroli essential oil is expertly extracted by steam distillation, a method that has been carefully passed down through the ages. It is the bitter orange tree (citrus aurantium subsp. amara or Bigaradia) whose blossoms give rise to Neroli's celestial fragrance. Their star shaped flowers are typically gathered by hand. This scent is often incorporated in the world of aromatherapy, as it offers a sweet and spicy aroma that blends well with others.
The modern name Neroli is thought to reference the Italian city of Nerola in Lazio, Italy, where princess Madame des Ursins is said to have brought the bitter orange essence as a desirable scent to her people in the 17th century. As the story is told, this princess was one of the first to perfume her elaborate baths and her well-made gloves with this coveted botanical scent.
At Modern Skyn Alchemy, we craft a lovely collection of products starring uplifting Neroli. Try our heavenly Neroli Face Wash for a fresh, cleansing boost that leaves your face kissed with brightness. We incorporate rich castor oil and a chorus of citruses, flower waters, and aloe in this preparation for a healthful dose of silky smooth moisture.
Your cleansing Neroli Face Wash is coupled with our simply divine Neroli Face Toner. Blended with jasmine and orange blossom waters, we also add a subtle sparkle in the form of mica macro-particles. These scintillating components help the light to reflect on your face, giving you a truly beautiful sheen. While this facial toner works wonders in tandem with its sister face wash, you may partake in it at anytime throughout your day for a bright burst of freshness. Shake the bottle well before spritzing.
Our Neroli Flower Water rounds out a busy day on the go. We all have those days. Here is a little burst of self-care medicine to counteract the high stress of modern life. This elegant concoction helps calm nerves and soothe the skin, and can be employed during long days of air travel for freshening things up. Finely crafted with our pure Neroli essential oil and crystalline distilled waters, its scent is of the essential oil in a milder incarnation...just enough to brighten your day.
