Common Herbs Used for Ayurvedic Facial Care

While each body is unique and will benefit from individualized skin care regimens, there are a few botanicals which are commonly used both by the Ayurvedic traditions for the face.

Easy Ayurvedic Facial Mask Recipe

This recipe is both incredibly easy and quick to take effect. After just applying the face mask for a few seconds, my face immediately feels cool and refreshed. Don’t be alarmed if the mixture looks like mud—the glamourous skin is revealed only after the mask has been removed!



  1. Mix powders and peppermint leaf together in small bowl
  2. Add enough hydrosol to form a soft muddy paste
  3. Apply to face (avoid eyes and areas of sensitivity)
  4. Let sit for five minutes
  5. Use lukewarm water to begin removing mask
  6. Rub face gently to exfoliate skin and remove mask
  7. Rinse face several times to remove remaining particles

Pro Tips

  • Before using the mixture on your face, try using a bit on your wrist or forearm to see how it feels. 
  • If the mixture feels too coarse, omit the peppermint leaf and replace the hydrosols with organic yogurt. 
  • If you feel the need to add moisture back to your face after using the mask, try lightly massaging some oil into the skin. I like organic almond oil or organic coconut oil. People who have a tendency to get cold skin might prefer warmer-feeling oil such as organic sesame oil.
