Orange Flower Virgin's Milk
Called "milk" for the milky appearance when Gum of Benjamin is added, Virgin's Milk was widely found at every woman's vanity used as a daily elixir for the skin. It was advertised as "giving one an ivory complexion and softens all faces smooth". The scent is a warm, lovely vanilla with hints of sweet orange. Safe for those with eczema and psoriasis. 2 oz bottle
This is an exact recipe from 1833 followed to a tee. I am pleasantly surprised by how little ingredients there are yet how soft it leaves skin... no wonder it was widely popular. Orange water is such a wonder for your skin! It is a natural astringent and contains anti-microbial properties to provide skin with a fresh feel, while removing excess dirt and oil that clogs pores leaving skin silky and clean. Some customers have told us they use our Virgins Milk alone without moisturizer.
The original recipe calls for Balm of Gilead, a wonderful, nourishing bud from Poplar trees whose sap is both protecting and healing. We gather it here in the late winter for use in our balms and salves. Instead of using an oil, which can sometimes contain fillers if commercially purchased, we have instead infused the buds into the milk giving you the utmost benefit possible.
No yucky stuff! We are sulfate, palm oil, propylene glycol and petroleum byproducts free. This product does not contain a preservative. Please use within 6 months of opening.
From our customers:
Absolutely divine! It smells absolutely amazing, and works best out of all the others I've tried. Combined with using the Orange Flower Cold Cream, my skin is now velvety soft and smelling fantastic!! I'm in love with this stuff!
This is a perfect balancing cleanser. Not drying and leaves skin feeling fresh. The scent is so yummy, I prefer it over the rose even though both are great.
This smells absolutely amazing... period!!!
I am in love with the way this smells! I've been applying it to my face, neck and chest the last couple of nights and it's wonderful.
