I love a good easy DIY beauty recipe! This time of the year, it’s really easy to find pumpkin just about anywhere and it is so good for you so you might as well take advantage of that. This Pumpkin Manuka Honey Face Mask Recipe has only 3 ingredients and you can find two of them at the grocery store. This face mask recipe helps clear up troubled skin and keeps skin healthy and rejuvenated! This is the perfect face mask to use twice a week and is great for most skin types (if you have sensitive skin, try a little on a small patch of skin first).

Pumpkin Face Mask Benefits
Organic pumpkin works best. As the International Dermal Institute says, “Pumpkin is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which increase cell turnover, to brighten and smooth the skin.” Pumpkin is also filled with wonderful vitamins like A and C which boost collagen production to prevent the signs of aging. Pumpkin has minerals as well…zinc and magnesium to name just a couple an it is high in anti aging antioxidants.
Manuka essential oil is a fabulous addition to this face mask. Manuka oil is a decongestant and is antibacterial and it useful to support a reduction in the appearance of blemishes.
Honey had natural wound healing properties so it is great for soothing blemishes. Accoridng to Women’s Health Magazine, honey can also promote collagen building while it exfoliates and moisturizes.
It is easy to see how these three ingredients come together to create such a wonderful Pumpkin Manuka Honey Face Mask Recipe. You are going to love the results!
Ingredients & Supplies For Pumpkin Manuka Honey Face Mask Recipe:
- 1 cup organic pumpkin (cook and make a puree or use canned organic pumpkin)
- 2 teaspoons of organic raw honey
- 8-10 drops of Young Living Manuka essential oil
- small mixing bowl/spoon
- jar with lid
Instructions For Manuka Honey Pumpkin Facial Mask:
Gather all supplies and head to the kitchen. Start with your pumpkin and honey. Measure out 8 oz of pumpkin and 2 teaspoons of your raw honey and put in mixing bowl. Mix those 2 ingredients together well.
Once mixed well, add your Young Living Manuka essential oil. Pour 8-10 drops in the bowl and mix with the pumpkin and honey.
Once everything is mixed well, transfer to a small jar with lid.
To use manuka honey face mask:
Spread a thin even layer over face avoiding eyes and mouth. Leave on for 10 minutes and then remove with a damp cloth. A slight tingling from the enzymes in the pumpkin might occur which is normal. Use twice a week for fresh healthy looking skin. It does not have to be refrigerated and I make a new batch each month.
