How to get Healthy, Beautiful Nails with Essential Oils

Nail health is not a topic we talk about a lot mainly cause it really isn't a sexy topic.  Who wants to talk about their nails???  Well today we will!!! Today I want to share with you just how simple it is to use your essential oils to help keep your nails healthy and strong.

Strengthen your nails

There are a lot of different essential oils that can help to strengthen your nails.  One of the most important things when talking about strong nails though is our nutrition.  Are you getting all the nutrients your body needs?  I recommend Microplex VMZ.  This is one part of doTERRA's lifelong vitality pack.  This will give your body the nutrients it needs so your nails can grow strong.

Another great thing to do is to make a nail serum that you use daily.  Some of the essential oils that work to strengthen your nails are Lavender, Lemon, Frankincense and myrrh. They all help to strengthen, restore moisture which reduces breakage and stop thinning of weak brittle nails.  Consistently is key and they need to be applied daily to see the benefit.

Lavender and jojoba essential oils can strengthen weak, brittle nails when applied daily. Other oils with strengthening properties include lemon, frankincense and myrrh oils. These oils restore moisture to reduce breakage and thinning.

Cuticle and Nail Oil:

  • 15ml top, glass dropper (this is what I use, you can always use an empty doTERRA essential oil bottle)
  • Add 10-20 drops of essential oils (my favorite combo is Lavender and Frankincense).
  • Fill with Jojoba Oil or Fractionated Coconut Oil.
  • Shake to mix.
  • Apply to nails and cuticles and massage in.

Eliminate Nail Fungus

Very similar to making a blend for strengthening your nails you can make a blend to fight nail fungus.  Again it is very important to do daily!  Once you feel the nail fungus has gone away continue use for 2-3 more weeks to ensure you have eliminated it.

Anti-Fungal Nail Oil:

  • 15ml top, glass dropper (this is what I use, you can always use an empty doTERRA essential oil bottle)
  • Add 10 drops doTERRA Melaleuca
  • Add 5 drops doTERRA Oregano
  • Fill with Fractionated Coconut Oil.
  • Shake to mix.
  • Apply to nails and massage in.
