Makes 2 ounces, enough for 1 nail soak for both hands
Pure molasses made from the juice of fresh sugarcane can be used as a soak to soften cuticles and strengthen and condition nails before a manicure. Like honey, molasses is an excellent natural humectant that will help restore lost moisture to the skin and nails.

  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  1. Mix together water and molasses, stirring well.
  2. To use: Soak your nails in the solution for 15 to 20 minutes.
