Aromatherapy Recipe for Brush-On Cuticle Oil

Aromatherapy Cuticle TreatmentI am blessed with strong and fast-growing nails. I'm not sure if it's correlated to having strong nails, but my cuticles are a challenge. They'd take over half of the surface of my nail if I let them. I'm exaggerating, but not by much. Wintertime is especially rough on my cuticles, and the skin surrounding my nails becomes tougher.

I love using handmade cuticle balms that are packaged in either small jars or in lip gloss style swivel tubes. There are artisans that make some lovely ones that smell beautiful and work well. The balms, however, can take time to apply and unless I rub the balm in well, it doesn't reach the nooks and crannies between my nails and surrounding skin.

I recently began using a cuticle oil that I prepare myself and store in a repurposed old nail polish bottle. It does wonders in keeping my cuticles and surrounding skin soft and winter-proofed. At this writing, I haven't yet seen an all-natural cuticle oil, though one might exist... I can make my own, so I haven't actively searched. I have seen brush-on cuticle oils, but they contain synthetics. One mass-market brand also contains alcohol which is drying to the skin.

I prefer packaging in a nail polish bottle, but other packaging and application options include small roll-on bottles or bottles with dropper tops. Either of these methods will still require that you work the oil in more thoroughly than the brush method.


Easy Cuticle Oil Recipe

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  • Add carrier oil to a new or thoroughly cleaned nail polish bottle.
  • Then add the essential oil. A dropper or pipette can help add the oils to the narrow opening of the nail polish bottle.
  • Shake well.

Directions for Use:

  • Lightly turn the bottle from side to side before each use.
  • Brush onto cuticles and the skin surrounding your nails.
  • Massage in.
  • Apply as often as desired, but discontinue use if you experience any problems. I typically apply it once daily, as needed.
  • Bacteria and moisture from your fingers and nails will be transfered onto the brush and into the bottle each time you apply the oil. Because this simple recipe does not contain preservatives, it is recommended that you discard any remaining cuticle oil after two weeks and replace with a fresh batch.
