Easy Aromatherapy Nail Treatments

1:09 PM Posted by Jo Pedranti


If you read my blog regularly you know that there are tons of ways to use essential oils. The same bottle can be used for many things. This makes essential oils fairly inexpensive to use despite the upfront cost of purchasing the oils and other ingredients. So, today I will share some easy nail treatments you can do.

Nails
You can soak your nails in soapy water with geranium and tea tree. These oils are used for their anti-fungal and antiseptic properties. Add some seaweed to re-mineralising the skin and nails.
A blend of myrrh, frankincense, sweet almond, and vitamin E can be used to massage the hands and nails. 

Cuticles
Cuticles may be conditioned with lavender in a sweet almond oil base.
You can also mix eucalyptus, peppermint, jojoba and carrot oil and use as cuticle softener.


Other useful information:

 Nail infections

Most importantly, don't forget that beauty starts from the inside so make sure you get a sufficient amount of minerals, vitamins, proteins and pure water.
