Stronger Nails for Strong Women
Fingernails belong to everyone. They help us scratch, pick and grab things. They serve us by protecting our fingertips and enhancing nerve sensation in our fingertips. Women love to customise their nails with acrylics, gels, fake nails, bright colours, dull colours, glitter, etc. But did you know that the chemicals in these products, as well as the ones in many house cleaning products like dishwashing soap, can cause damage to our nails?
Nails often become brittle, thin and weak which can cause them to break and peel off easily. Do note, that unhealthy looking nails could be a sign of a more serious health problem and if you believe your nails are more damaged then day-to-day wear and tear, you should consult a professional. However, if it is just regular wear and tear or exposure to lots of harsh products that are causing damage, LeRêve Pure Essential Oils can offer relief and help you strengthen your nails.
These Essential Oils are our top recommendations if you want to boost your nail health:
- Lemon Oil
Lemon has antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory properties which means it is a great aid in cleaning toxins from your body and your nails. Lemon will nourish your skin and naturally disinfect your hands, reducing bacteria, whilst brightening your nails and making them appear shinier and healthier. We recommend adding a couple of drops to your soap.
Lavender similarly has antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory properties, is generally soothing and helps improve skin conditions, bruises, mild burns and skin infections. This Essential Oil works well when moisturised into the skin and can help protect your hands from bacteria and nail fungus.
This powerful Essential Oil has been traditionally used in aromatherapy beauty practices and is growing in popularity today. It has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antioxidant and tonic properties which help give you smooth skin. Using Frankincense will strengthen your nails and the surrounding cuticles, whilst minimising bacteria growth. It works well when applied directly to the nail or in your soap.
