Nail Therapy

To have beautiful healthy nails, you have to not only treat the nail but also the nail bed or cuticle. There are many physical conditions that appear in the nails as ridges or thickening. Arthritic and rheumatoid illnesses show up as thickened nails and they often also become distorted. Aromatherapists who do body work should keep their nails short and they must constantly attend to their nail length because the essential oils they work with cause nails to grow quickly.

The essential oils to use for making your nails grow are lemon, carrot, grapefruit, lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary, peppermint and cypress. Choose jojoba, evening primrose, borage, almond, grapeseed or avocado oil as a carrier to dilute your essential oils.

Here is a wonderful synergistic blend you can use to strengthen your nails:

  • 2 teaspoons grapeseed oil
  • 5 drops jojoba oil
  • 3 drops carrot oil
  • 8 drops lemon
  • 2 drops rosemary

Make up the blend and store it in a dark colored bottle so it is ready to use. When you want to use it add 10 drops to 1 teaspoon avocado oil and blend it well. Massage this mixture well into your fingers and fingernails or your toes and toenails. Do this after you manicure your nails but do not add nail polish.

 


Best Essential Oils for You

I recently had the doctor remove some moles from my neck and the whole procedure went well. He even gave me the moles in a little jar of formaldehyde. I know that sounds gross but my granddaughter used to play with them when they were on my neck so I wanted to show her where they went.

Dr. Ed burned the moles off with a little tool that he said is a disposable laser of some sort and I’ve had no problem in any of the 18 spots where he burned off moles, except for one. For some reason this spot has been irritated all along and it wasn’t even the biggest mole. I kept unconsciously rubbing it and I must have made it worse. Well, the point of this blog is to let you know that this eveninng, I put one drop of lavender and one drop of tea tree oil on a cotton swab and dabbed it on the spot. Voila, after one application, it is no longer itching or irritated.

If you don’t have any other essential oils, please get either one or both of these two. Lavender is a natural antibiotic, antiseptic, antidepressant, sedative and detoxifier. It is excellent in the treatment of burns and minor skin irritations. Tea tree is antiviral, antibacterial and antifungul so it can be used to treat all kinds of infections and a wide range of other conditions such as ringworm, sunburn, acne, athlete’s foot and toothache.
