This rich cuticle cream made with jojoba oil can be massaged into your cuticles to condition them and increase your nails’ circulation. Jojoba oil has become popular recently because it is similar to our bodies’ own natural oils. Many health-food stores carry this oil.

  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 2 tablespoons jojoba oil
  • 1 teaspoon anhydrous lanolin or lanolin cream
  • ½ teaspoon coconut oil
  1. Combine ingredients in a heat-resistant container and heat gently in a double boiler or in the microwave. 
  2. When all ingredients have melted, pour the mixture into a clean container. Cool completely before using. Massage a small amount into your cuticles.
