How to Use Body Oils for Your Nails + Manicure Detox
After a long day or busy week, a manicure can be the self-care solution to stress. Although we would never discourage you from a little pampering, those mani-pedis may make your nails brittle and susceptible to breaks.
Most nail salons use acetone and other chemicals that can dehydrate your nails and skin. Consider taking a break from gel, paint, and removers by giving your nails a boost with our body oils, made with pure essential oils.
All of our body oils contain Fractionated Coconut, vitamin E and Camellia Seed which help soothe tired skin and improve the effectiveness of EOs. Try a natural detox so your nails can Do-it-all!
Best Body Oils For Nails
Lemon Ginger: This spicy body oil contains Lemon essential oil which naturally brightens. The combination of EOs and nourishing carrier oils encourage a healthy sheen on your fingernails. Lemon Ginger’s vitamin E can help keep your nails and cuticles from drying out so your hands and feet stay supple and soft.
Lavender/Lavender Magnolia: The Do-it-all of the essential oil world, Lavender can help strengthen your nails while fighting bacteria. Fractionated Coconut oil can actually help promote nail growth while moisturizing distressed skin.

Along with essential oils like Hemp and Yuzu, Grapefruit essential oil is an active ingredient in Yuzu Cannabliss. Many nail specialists consider Grapefruit to be a secret ingredient in lotions and salves because of its antiseptic and astringent properties.
Body Oil Manicure Detox
Step One: Use a plant-based nail polish remover to get rid of any excess paint.
Step Two: Soak your fingers (or toes) in warm water for 10-15 minutes. Add a little Jojoba oil to the water for extra nourishment.
Step Three: For faster results, keep your nails short by filing them often. Only use an emery board on the top of your nails and file in a single direction to prevent snags.
Step Four: Massage body oil into your cuticles and fingernails and leave on overnight.
Step Five: Wash your hands and repeat steps until you get the desired results.
