Recipe: Calming Clay Face Mask with Manuka Honey and Rose

The best skincare you've ever experienced doesn't come from a store, it comes from your kitchen. Fresh, raw ingredients offer a next-level glow, and Manuka Honey’s moisturizing properties help leave skin radiant.

This Calming Clay Face Mask recipe uses Manuka Honey, rose water and bentonite clay, which has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe distressed skin. People have used bentonite clay in skincare for thousands of years because it absorbs oils and impurities, and also gives your skin minerals like calcium, magnesium and iron. Make this homemade mask a weekly ritual:

1/3 cup bentonite clay
1/4 cup dried rose petals, powdered
2 tablespoons Comvita UMF™ 10+ Manuka Honey
Rosewater until a thick-but-stirrable consistency is reached

- Soak rose petals for an hour, then crush the rose petals in a bowl or mortar.
- Mix 1/3 cup bentonite clay and 2 tablespoons of Comvita Manuka Honey with the rose petals, add water or rosewater until mask becomes the consistency of mud
- Apply them to your face. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse and follow with your favorite natural moisturizer.

For this recipe, we recommend Mountain Rose Herbs bentonite Clay and Comvita UMF™ 10+ Manuka Honey.
