Lemon and Lavender Cuticle Cream

1 ½ oz. Shea Butter
½ oz. Cocoa Butter
¼ oz. Beeswax
½ tsp. Vitamin E Oil or Coconut Oil
5 drops Lemon Essential Oil
5 drops Lavender Essential Oil

  1. Add the butters, beeswax and coconut oil (if using) to the double boiler, and heat gently to melt, stirring occasionally.
  2. When fully melted, turn off heat and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Before cuticle balm starts to solidify add the vitamin E oil (if using) and essential oils.
  4. Mix gently to combine ingredients and pour into your container.
  5. Leave to fully cool and set.
Use daily, and when your cuticles need a little extra moisturizer.  Keep in mind that a little goes a long way.
