By massaging this mixture into clean nails, you will improve your hands’ circulation while promoting new nail growth. The clay enhances the nails’ natural luster and works as a gentle polish.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon powdered white clay or kaolin clay
  1. Mix together olive oil and clay until smooth. If the mixture seems too thick, add a bit more olive oil. 
  2. Massage a small amount into your nails and cuticles. Wipe off any excess with a soft cloth or cotton pad and buff lightly for a soft, natural glow.
