This cuticle balm blends lanolin, cocoa butter, and horsetail infused castor oil with beeswax cappings to create an anhydrous skin protecting balm. This all natural lemongrass balm is infused with horsetail, an herb that is naturally high in silica, which has traditionally been used to strengthen brittle nails. Also incorporated are the pure essential oils of lemongrass, peppermint, thyme, and carrot seed for antiseptic properties, and to nurture damaged skin. For best results, soak fingers and/ or toes in warm water, then apply a small dab of Nail and Cuticle Balm and buff with a soft cloth or rub in with fingertips. This herbal salve is a solid cuticle oil that is the perfect addition to your next manicure or pedicure.
