The finger nails are formed of keratin, which is the same substance that forms hair and skin. Instead of using chemical -laden solutions sold commercially, use essential oils to keep your nails strong, healthy and attractive.
Massage Cuticles with Rose:
Rose essential oil softens and rejuvenates skin while increasing circulation, which in turn may help stimulate healthy nail growth. Use 2-3 drops of rose essential oil per hand, gently rubbing the cuticles while enjoying the essential oil’s beautiful fragrance. Follow up with a generous dollop of your favorite hand cream. Repeat this treatment as often as you like.
Natural Nail Strengthener:
MAKES 24 TREATMENTS
Vitamin E and lavender essential oil come together to help strengthen nails while imparting a natural, healthy glow. If you have no vitamin E oil available, you can extract vitamin E from a capsule pricking it with a pin and squeezing out as much as you need.
- 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
- 24 drops lavender essential oil
- In a dark-colored glass bottle, add the vitamin E oil and lavender essential oil, and shake well to blend.
- Using fingertips, apply Ito 3 drops to the nails and cuticles.
- Repeat this treatment once a day, or as needed.
