Honey – This is a single farm, single varietal, raw Orange Blossom Honey from California that is noticeably fresh and vibrant. Honey impedes the overgrowth of harmful bacteria colonies, while still allowing beneficial flora to thrive. It has gentle enzymatic action that works to turn over cells in a non-forceful way, and its intense hydration visibly plumps and firms the skin.
Roses – Our rainbow colored Heirloom Rose Petals are grown exclusively for Laurel Skin on a small farm on the Point Reyes, California seashore with great love and care. Roses are powerful humectants that strengthen the skin’s barrier and connective tissue.
Nutmeg and Clove – Both Nutmeg and Clove bring not only a beautiful wintertime nostalgia to this luxurious mask, but they also stimulate circulation and bring new nutrients and vibrancy to the skin.
Tulsi – Our stunning Tulsi is from one of our favorite partnering farms to the East. This mask includes a Tulsi distillation, as well as hand-harvested and hand-powdered flowering tops. Tulsi is a potent anti-inflammatory for the skin, in addition to being a soothing aromatic plant for the nervous system.
Frankincense – Our certified organic Frankincense is distilled in the Northeast by a family who travels to Somalia each year for harvesting. This ingredient has been used historically for centuries to revitalize the skin by reducing the appearance of scars and fine lines.

Moisten face and hands. Warm 1 teaspoon or less of Honey Rose Spice Mask between fingertips, then glide and massage over damp, clean skin. Leave for 10-30 minutes, then rinse. If you have more time, try our full honey tapping ritual.
We’ve included a handmade wooden spatula and special instructions on how to use your Honey Rose Spice Mask.
If your Honey Rose Spice Mask has solidified or contains what looks like grains of sugar, that is just normal raw honey crystallization. Take a scoop of 1 teaspoon or less and warm it in your fingers until it softens, then gently tap onto skin. Add water to skin and massage normally. You can also soften the honey by placing your jar, lid on tightly, into a shallow warm water bath. Be sure to keep the contents of the jar dry.
Use within 6 months of opening and within the use by date noted on the bottom of jar. Store in a cool, dry, dark place.
Science: What does Honey Tapping actually do? Honey Tapping works to stimulate lymphatic flow and circulation. Gently tap all the way down your neck and chest, as well as your face. This encourages lymphatic drainage for any build up or cellular waste that has accumulated beneath your skin. Your skin will have a clarity and vibrant glow to it afterwards! Honey Tapping is also a form of gentle exfoliation that works by sticking to and lifting up dead skin cells, which can then gently be rinsed away.

Ritual: The nostalgic holiday scents of this Mask inspire a slowing down and embracing of Winter. Winter is for rest; it is a valuable restoration period for our nervous system. The Laurel Skin Barn closes down all operations for almost 2 weeks in December/January so that our entire team can embrace the quiet of Winter more fully. Some of my favorite rituals during this down time include the Honey Rose Spice Mask. It gets dark so early, and we light candles throughout our home. I make myself some herbal tea, usually Chamomile, and apply the Honey Rose Spice Mask. I curl up with a book by candlelight, or enjoy a board game with husband. I even make time for this mindful ritual when we are camping, which I plan to do this season!
