If you suffer from dry, brittle or discoloured nails, then try these natural oil remedies which help to strengthen, nourish and protect.

Olive Oil

You no longer need to spend your hard earned money at fancy nail salons; use this simple everyday grocery item and you will notice a significant difference in the overall condition of your nails.  It will help strengthen brittle nails, stimulate growth, and soften and nourish dry and hard cuticles.

Nail Boost

Mix together ½ cup of tomatoes (or juice) and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.  Soak nails for approximately 10 minutes, rinse off and dry with a towel.  The Biotin present in tomatoes is an effective growth agent for nails and hair.

Almond Oil

Almond oil is extremely popular for use in skin care products.  This is simply because it contains the antioxidant Vitamin E; it is also easily absorbed and deeply penetrates into the skin making it a very effective nail moisturiser.

Nail Moisturiser

Rub Nature’s Alchemy Sweet Almond Oil into your cuticles and fingernails every night before going to bed and your nails will look healthy, strong and shiny.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil has been used around the world by many cultures for centuries because of its beneficial beauty and skin care properties.  The list of uses for this miracle natural oil is endless, including its ability to help improve the overall condition of nails.

Jojoba oil has been proven to be extremely effective for the maintenance and repair of hands and nails.  The moisturizing agents contained in this natural oil are sufficient to ensure your nails remain strong and healthy long after use.  By using jojoba oil on a regular basis it also allows for better absorption of Vitamin E which helps condition and nourish your nails.

Nail Repair

Apply droplets of Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil directly onto your nail and cuticles and gently massage.  Follow up with a coat of vitamin E.

Argan Oil

Many people are unaware of the amazing qualities Argan oil possesses for use as nail treatments.  This natural oil acts as an effective toner for the nails by moisturizing, strengthening, and protecting.  If you have dry brittle nails Argan oil will help nourish and repair, by providing them with all the essential vitamins and minerals required for them to grow strong and healthy.  It also helps to strengthen delicate skin around the roots and keep its smooth.

Nail Treatment

Mix Golden Argan Oil and lemon juice together briskly with a whisk, soak fingers for approximately 15 minutes.  Rinse using warm water without soap and pat dry.  Repeat this treatment weekly.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is widely used today for the treatment of many fungal and bacterial infections.  It contains powerful antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties making it perfect for the treatment of sore or infected nails.  It promotes the healing of tissue while soothing and disinfecting problem areas. It also has the ability to deeply penetrate into the lower layers of skin making its anti-inflammatory and pain-killing qualities even more effective. To achieve better results it is recommended you combine this natural oil with other anti-fungal and carrier oils.

Nail Soak

Add a few drops of Herbal Authority Tea Tree Oil to 2 tablespoons of olive or almond oil.  Soak nails for approximately 5 minutes.  Repeat this process twice daily.
