In response to a follower’s question about my cuticle oil, I decided to go into detail. A little over 13 months ago I set out on a Healthy Hair Journey. While on my journey, I did much research on natural and essential oils and their benefits to hair. As it turned out, just as they benefit my hair, Natural and Essential Oils also provide great benefits for both my skin and nails. So because I absolutely despise dry skin, especially my hands and knowing the benefits of moisturizing my hands and cuticles, I decided to develop my own cuticle oil.
So as I set out to develop my cuticle oil, I decided it would also include the following:
- Vitamin E Oil: When applied topically, vitamin E oil penetrates the deeper skin layers and moisturizes it. It can also be used for treating dry and cracked cuticles.
- Sweet Almond OiL:Contains several essential vitamins such as vitamin A, B1, B2, B6 and E, which makes it very useful for treating skin conditions. All these vitamins rejuvenate the skin. (NOTE: Not to be used by those with nut allergies.)
- Lavender & Rosemary Oils: Both help to stimulate blood circulation in the nailbed and encourages nail growth.
- Lemon Oil: Has anti-septic, astringent and bacteria fighting properties. You need a healthy nailbed to encourage nail growth.
Hope you find benefit in some bit of this information.
Side Note: My Hair Journey resulted in my hair growing thicker and from ear length to past my shoulders in 12 months.
Grace and Peace.
