DIY Cuticle Oil Recipe with Essential Oils | Strengthens Nails
What are The Best Oils for Cuticles?
There are lots of wonderful, skin-healthy oil choices to use in your homemade cuticle oil.I’ve chosenolive,avocadoandjojoba oilsas the base because they are nourishing, absorb well and are all relatively easy to purchase.If you haven’t triedjojoba oil for nailsbefore, you are going to love it in this cuticle oil!It is a rich and nourishing oil that is sowonderful in homemade skincare products.
Fun fact:did you knowjojoba oilis the closest of any oil to the oils your own skin creates?
If you don’t have all of these on hand, don’t worry!You can usepure olive oilfor your cuticle oil and it will still turn out lovely.Almond oilis also a very nice substitute for either avocado or jojoba oil.
You can also leave out the jojoba if you need to (although it is SUCH a wonderful addition, I hope you don’t ;).I have made this recipe with half olive oil and half avocado before and it did the job well.
note: When choosing an olive oil for skincare products, I look for a mild or ‘pomace’ oil that is lighter in color and scent.I keep a small bottle ofmild olive oilon hand specifically for making my own skincare products at home.
