Making this historical recipe is always a joy, with such heavenly fresh aromas of citrus plants. Based on a druggist’s recipe from 1878, this aromatic Eau de Cologne Splash includes essential oils of Bergamot, Bitter Orange, Lemon and Neroli, with added crushed Cardamom Seed. Using organic alcohol, the essential oils and seeds are slowly infused over 4-6 weeks on a sunny windowsill, then filtered to give a clear amber liquid. Dab on lightly for a great spritzy smell on waking, a pick-me-up splash during the day or a freshener for a night out. Or transfer to a spray bottle for use at any time.
Alcohol denat., Aqua, Citrus aurantium amara flower water, Citrus bergamia peel oil expressed, Citrus limon peel oil, Rosmarinus officinalis leaf oil, Citrus aurantium leaf oil, Citrus aurantium flower oil, Elettaria cardamomum seed extract, *d-limonene (*natural constituent of essential oils).
