Plus, it's a super easy, effective, inexpensive & a sustainable way to do things. Here's a favourite DIY at home natural nail serum recipe intended to nourish, strengthen, hydrate & stimulate your fingernail growth 100% naturally. Give it a go xx
What you will need for your natural nail serum
Ingredients & equipment:
> 1&1/4 tspn Fractionated Coconut or Jojoba Oil
> 1/2 tspn Vitamin E Oil
> 5 drops pure Lavender Essential Oil
> 5 drops pure Lemon Essential Oil
> 5 drops pure Frankincense Essential Oil
> 5 drops pure Myrrh Essential Oil
> 10 ml rollerball bottle
How to make your natural nail serum
1 Add Fractionated Coconut Oil to the rollerball bottle. You can do this by eye if you like - fill to approximately 2/3rds of the 10 ml bottle.
2 Add the Vitamin E oil. You can also do this by eye - fill almost to the top of the 10 ml bottle but leaving enough room for the essential oils in the top.
3 Add each of the essential oils (this works out to be approximately a 10% dilution rate).
4 Snap on the rollerball top so that it is secure and will not leak. Then gently shake the rollerball bottle to mix.
5 You may also like to add a label sticker (to be able to easily identify what's in the bottle).
How to use your natural nail serum
Guidelines for best results:
> Remove any nail polish or artificial nails
> Wash hands & nails
> Roll serum back and forth over each fingernail - starting at the cuticle and nail bed, then massage into full nail
> If you can, apply just before bedtime followed by a natural hand cream, then cover hands with cotton gloves overnight
> Apply daily or at least 2-3 times per week.
P.S. There's so many different ways we can nourish ourselves.
