Several weeks ago I was positively raving about a treatment oil from Darphin called Tangerine Aromatic Care. If you want to read the review and watch the video, click here. I’m not even joking when I say that I love the smell of the Tangerine oil so much that I have been caught secretly sniffing at the bottle during the day. And in the middle of the night.
So imagine my excitement when I found out that there’s a new Aromatic Care in existence: Orange Blossom! Yes, Orange Blossom, surely the ‘Big Daddy’ of citrus fragrances – the most ‘orangey’ orange of all? Sadly not. It’s a little bit orangey, but the scents of the other essential oils take over somewhat. It still smells divine, but I prefer my tangerine…
It’s not all about smell, however – these Aromatic Oils actually have their own special little jobs to do, and the Orange Blossom’s is to help even out skin affected by hyperpigmentation and prevent future brown spots from developing. If you have existing sun-damage, or are worried about the amount of time that your skin has been exposed to the sun for, then this is a great nighttime treatment. Splash five drops into the palms of your hands, and inhale. Then massage the oil into your skin – you could also use it to help treat the skin on the backs of your hands, chest and neck. The oil is light and absorbs quickly, and it’s calming and soothing, so fine to use on hot, beached-out (NOT sunburned!) skin.
Right, I’m off to inhale my Tangerine Oil. Don’t wait up.
