Part of a great, natural manicure, this easy cuticle oil works wonders on dry cuticles and nails.
I really could have used this when I worked as a card merchandiser! My hands got so dry handling cards all day.
More on the natural manicure part later, but for now, here is the recipe I use for my cuticles.

Nourishing Cuticle Oil
- 10 ml roller bottle (I use these)
- 1 drop geranium oil
- 1 drop lavender oil
- 1 drop frankincense oil (optional)
- 1 drop myrrh oil (optional, but the best nail oil)
- about 2 teaspoons of carrier oil (I use half argon and half apricot kernel oils)
Add essential oils to roller bottle, top off with carrier oil and shake.
For best benefits, use every other day, though I only get around to it once a week or so!
Just roll liberally on cuticles and nails, massage into cuticles and nails, and gently push cuticles back with a damp wash cloth or cuticle stick.
