If you haven’t been in the habit of taking care of your nails, you’ll find that using cuticle cream regularly will help keep your cuticles and nail folds looking great. It feels really good too.

I like to exfoliate my hands before using the cuticle cream. They are super soft and smooth that way!

  • Double Boiler

  • Add the shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax pellets and almond oil to a double boiler. If you don't have a double boiler, you can place the ingredients in a glass bowl placed in a pan of hot water. Heat over medium, stirring frequently, until the ingredients are melted and clear.
  • Remove the pan (or bowel) from the heat, then whisk in the essential oils.
