DIY: How to make your own natural cuticle oil with home based ingredients

Home-made natural cuticle oil ready for use
This weekend, I decided to experiment with making my own cuticle oil. I had read about this on the internet a while ago as a great treatment for horribly peeling and ridged nails. I’ve spent goodness-knows-how-much on nail treatment and think it is cheaper and healthier to make your own natural cuticle oil. For one, you can be 100% sure your version contains no preservatives or harmful chemicals, unless the raw materials also contain said chemicals.

Here's what you need to make your own cuticle oil at home:

  • An empty bottle, preferably with a dropper. I used an empty nasal drops bottle because it was the only (near) empty one around. I removed the label so I wouldn't pour the oil down my nose someday.
  • I cleaned the bottle and dropper thoroughly
  • Jojoba oil – one tablespoon
  • Olive oil - one tablespoon
  • Almond oil – one tablespoon
  • Rice bran oil – one tablespoon
  • Two Vitamin E capsules
  • One Evening Primrose Oil capsule
  • A few drops of essential oil – I’ve used lavender. 
  • Other options include macadamia oil and tea tree oil. Feel free to substitute sensibly or even remove elements you don’t like or can’t find.
  • I couldn't find a funnel so I just used a spoon - nothing spilled.

    Pour the lot into the bottle. Shake thoroughly before use. Apply only one drop at the base of each nail – see why you need a bottle with a dropper? Massage into the cuticle. I leave it on for a couple of hours before pushing back the cuticle. You can also leave it on overnight for maximum nourishment. The formula is not runny or greasy - I'm going to make this each time I run out.
