RECIPE: Nail and Cuticle Serum

Keep your cuticles moisturized and strengthen your nails with this serum that packs a (well-manicured) punch!
 
If you want to strengthen your nails even more, add Sulfurzyme to your daily supplement regime. My nails have never been stronger since I started taking Sulfurzyme regularly. If you have never read up on Sulfurzyme, check out the link. I add 1 tsp. to my Red Drink every day, and it is delicious!

Nail Strengthening (and Cuticle Moisturizing) Serum is just one of the recipes included in our "Pampering" gift set. You can view the complete essential oil DIY project by clicking on the link above and you will find the individual recipes at the bottom of this post.

ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS
 
Grapeseed Oil has a slicker, lighter consistency and penetrates deeply to moistures the nail bed. It helps prevent brittle nails that break and split easily.
 
Jojoba Oil contains fatty acids that provide intensive hydration and natural moisture to dry and brittle nail beds and cuticles. Jojoba helps repair damaged collagen inside nail beds, improving strength and promoting healthy nail growth. Its’ small molecules penetrate between the nail layers and is able to go deeper into the nail to condition and soften it.
 
Vitamin Estrengthens brittle nails, softens cuticles, helps prevent hangnails, and conditions cuticles while increasing nail flexibility.
 
Lavender Essential Oil calms and soothes inflamed cuticles and strengthens weak, brittle nails. Lavender essential oil will moisturize your cuticles and protect them from bacteria, all the while promoting keratin growth. The antifungal properties of lavender essential oil are effective in combating nail fungus as well.
 
Lemon Essential Oilhelps strengthen damaged and peeling nails.
 
Frankincense Essential Oilhelps moisturize nails so that they can grow longer and stronger and enhances the properties of the other essential oils.
 
Myrrh Essential Oil is touted as one of the best essential oils for nail growth. It moisturizes deeply to help relieve brittleness, thinning, and breaking. It has antifungal, antimicrobial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties. WHEW! It is a wonderful moisturizer that will help your cuticles and fingernails stay healthy and strong.
