Simple Cuticle Oil

*Note* I apologize for recipe errors yesterday! I have fixed that little problem and I have to admit that I must have been missing some brain cells when I released it! :)

Sometimes an intensive cuticle treatment is nice, but I need a little pampering during the day when I don’t have time for it. This cuticle oil is perfect for applying and then going back to work! Let’s go look at the ingredients for this simple cuticle oil.

I used Avocado Oil as my main oil for the nice feeling as well as the versatility that lets people of all skin types enjoy the oil.

I chose three extracts for this formula, but you can use any extract of your choice. I chose Ivy Extract, Green Tea Extract, and Calendula Extract for their skin soothing properties. These extracts have also been noted for their abilities to combat dry and scaly skin.

Notes: This is a nice and light cuticle oil. A single drop can be applied and massaged into each cuticle. This cuticle oil also could be used as a massage oil! If over used, will take a few minutes for the fingertips to not feel slick. That being said, you can easily apply and go back to work without leaving an oily residue on everything!
