Nail Strengthener Formula

Nail Strengthener Formula

Now that glove and mitten season is over, our hands emerge from their winter cocoons–but, unlike butterflies, our fingernails can look pretty bedraggled from the cold weather and dry indoor heat. This simple formula can help restore our nails to strength, health, and beauty. Get the formula here:

400 IU Vitamin E
6 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops sandalwood essential oil

Combine ingredients and place in a brown or amber-colored glass bottle. Rub a very small amount into your nails twice a day.
