A thermoherb mask is a warm, anti-aging facial treatment available in health spas and beauty salons. It has a plaster-like texture which deep cleanses, restores balance and tightens the skin creating a lifting effect, minimising wrinkles and enhancing radiance. You can create your own variation of a thermoherb mask using store cupboard ingredients and essential oils in the comfort of your own home.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Blender or food processor
  • 1 Cup of oats or ground almonds
  • Mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • 4 Tablespoons natural yoghurt
  • 4 Drops rosehip, rose or neroli essential oil
  • 4 Tablespoons liquid honey
  • Microwave proof bowl

  1. 1

    Pour 1 cup of oats or ground almonds into a food processor or blender and mix until a fine, powder-like consistency then add it to the mixing bowl.

  2. 2

    Add 4 tablespoons of the natural yoghurt to the bowl and mix together the ingredients with the wooden spoon.

  3. 3

    Add 4 drops of your chosen essential oil or a combination and mix further. Rosehip helps rejuvenate aged and sun-damaged skin, Rose has excellent hydration properties and promotes skin elasticity while Neroli aids in repairing broken capillaries and increases elasticity of mature skin.

  4. 4

    Measure 4 tablespoons of honey into the microwave proof bowl and microwave for 10 to 20 seconds until lukewarm. Combine the honey with the rest of the mixture and stir well.

  5. 5

    Apply the mixture to your face using your fingers avoiding the eyes and lie back and relax for 20-30 minutes.

  6. 6

    Remove the mask by wiping away the excess with a tissue then wash your face with warm water. Splash your face with cold water to tighten your pores then apply your favourite moisturiser. Discard any unused mixture.

Tips and warnings

  • Apply the mixture to a clean, dry face.
  • Wash your face with warm water or place a warm flannel over your face to open pores prior to using the mask.
  • Tie any loose hairs back.
  • Avoid using ground almonds if you have a nut allergy.
  • Test the heat of the mixture before applying to your face by placing a small amount on the inside of your wrist.
  • Seek medical advice before using essential oils if you are pregnant.
