Our nails and cuticles can go through alot of damage due to weather change or routine chores.I had Acrylic Gel nails for quite a while which made my nails very fragile, so I made this cuticle cream which worked miracles to save my nails and I am so glad to share it with you because it’s not only easy to make (it took me a few minutes to get it done) but also it can make a cute gift to friends, I gave it to two of my friends and they absolutely love it!
It helps nourish the cuticles and nails, it is very hydrating and to top it all it has this yummy smell!. I have listed down the ingredients you will require to make this cuticle cream. Lets get started 🙂
- 2 tablespoons Shea butter.
- 1 teaspoon Beeswax
- 1 tablespoons coconut oil
- 5-8 drops of Essential oil(I used rose and vanila)
Mix the Shea butter, beeswax and coconut oil in a small container. Place it in a saucepan with boiling water.
Stir the ingredients when it’s melting.( beeswax will take longer to melt than the other ingredients).
Once it’s melted remove from heat and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes and add the essential oils.
Pour into the container and let it rest for 2-3 hours until it hardens.
HOW TO USE :
To use this cuticle cream apply some on the cuticles and rub until it’s been absorbed. This cream can also be used for dry elbows and feet 😊
Try it and do let me knwo what you guys think, as for me I am in love!
