DIY Manuka Honey Face Mask Series – Part III

September 4, 2019

In this mask recipe, mānuka honey is paired with the free-radical-fighting and antioxidant-rich matcha tea powder, the calming and cleansing qualities of oatmeal and the soothing power of aloe for a combination that can refresh and revitalize aging and/or dry skin.

Mānuka Honey + Matcha + Aloe+ Oatmeal Mask



  • 1 tbsp. Flora Mānuka Honey MGO 250+/10+ UMF or higher
  • 1 tsp. matcha powder
  • 1 tsp. oats
  • ¼ inch sliver of fresh aloe, scraped and mashed or ½ tsp. aloe vera gel (optional)


  1. In a blender, grind oats into a fine powder.
  2. Combine mānuka honey, matcha, fine ground oatmeal and aloe in a small dish, and stir to make a thick paste. Add a bit more matcha or ground oatmeal if the mixture is too wet. If it is too dry, add a little more mānuka honey.
  3. Apply the mask to the skin with your fingers or a mask applicator. Allow the mask to sit for at least 15-30 minutes. Rinse well and repeat 2 to 3 times per week.
