The possiblities and use of therapeutic essential oils to care for our bodies naturally is so exciting. If you can think it, you can create it!  The really exciting part is that these products will not only meet a need, but also provide support that safely works with your body.  DIY recipes continue to grow in popularity and I have to admit, I’m getting use to the idea of spending some fun time with my daughter in the kitchen making our own everyday products.  How about a natural option for your current cuticle balm for those dry, cracked areas during the winter months?  Have fun with this one!  Caryn

Soothing DIY Cuticle Balm

The cold air outdoors and the warm atmosphere inside sure does take its toll on our skin! I find that my nails become brittle and harder to care for this time of year.

Soothing Cuticle Balm would make a thoughtful gift for the ladies in your life: daughters, mothers, neighbors, teachers, friends. Packed with wonderful nutrients, this balm is certain to bring relief to dry and cracking cuticles!

Apply the cuticle balm to your nail beds after washing your hands or any time your hands or feet feel dry, and you’ll enjoy sweet relief in no time!

 

This recipe is super easy to follow. You just need a few ingredients and little bit of time.

1. In a double boiler, melt the beeswax and oils.
2. Remove from heat and add the essential oils.
3. Pour into pots and leave untouched to set.
