Nourishing Orange Hand and Nail Oil

So, this Sweet Orange hand and nail oil was an accidental concoction that I stumbled upon when I failed at making my first hand cream.

It turns out it is great cuticle oil and has really helped my dry hands – plus it smells great too!

This recipe is enough to make two cosmetic pots! and it has a shelf life of around 2-3 months! This would also make a great handmade pamper gift

Ingredients

ingredients (2)

1 and a half Tablespoons of Olive oil

1 Teaspoon of vanilla essence or essential oil

1 and a half Teaspoons of Sweet orange essential oil (lime is also great too)

2 Tablespoons of Vaseline

4 Tablespoons of coconut oil (not liquid form it needs to be semi-solid)

Method

Tip the olive oil, orange essential oil and vanilla into a mixing bowl and give it a little stir

Add the Vaseline and coconut oil

Ingredients

 

Use an electric whisk to blend the ingredients together quickly – don’t over do it it should be a creamy texture but not quite a liquid

whisk

*The more you whisk the more the coconut oil melts because of the temperature from the whisk*

Pour into your containers and put in the fridge to set *it will go rock hard in the fridge and that’s ok*

Pouring

Once it has set Leave in a cool room (or near a window) to warm back to room temperature

Close up top

Store in a cool place (not the fridge) to keep a thicker consistency

A little goes a long way 🙂
