Orange Flower Blossom Water Fights Acne and Brightens Your Day

by Andrew Ciccone May 28, 2017

Orange flower blossom water, is made from the bud of the bitter orange tree. Orange flower water is soothing and toning on the skin and it balances oil and brightens the skin. The orange flower buds extract is known to have aromatherapeutic benefits that include feeling uplifted and happy.

Fun Fact: Most citrus based cosmetics will impart brightness to your complexion.

How to Make Flower Blossom Perfume:

  1. Line your bowl with cheesecloth, allowing for the edges to hang over a bit.
  2. Place the flower petals in the bowl and then pour water over petals.
  3. Let sit overnight and through the next day. Steep for at least 24 hours.
  4. Pull the edges of the cheesecloth and remove flower blossoms out of the bowl. Be sure to let all the water drain out from the cheesecloth back into the bowl.
  5. Pour the flower-water into a pot, and squeeze the remaining excess scented water out of the cheesecloth-bundled flowers.
  6. Turn on the heat, and allow the water to simmer down to about a teaspoon.
  7. Pour your perfume into a small bottle. Enjoy!


     Pure, clean alkalized water for drinking, washing produce and cooking is essential to good health. Countertop filtration systems are an easy alternative to buying bottled water. 


    • The fresher the blossoms that you use, the better. One of the best flower blossom combinations is fresh lavender and jasmine.
    • This perfume will keep for about a month, so plan accordingly.


    • Be careful when transferring your new perfume from the pot, it may be quite hot! Play it safe and let it cool a bit first.
    • Do not add food coloring. It will stain.
