Biotin causes me to break out like CRAAAZY! I am talking golf sized zits on my face (ok I’m exaggerating a bit).
When it comes to growing out longer natural nails I use a cuticle oil that I make myself.
Using this DIY cuticle oil will help you if you want to get longer, stronger nails without acrylics or gel additions.
Many nail shops use tons of chemicals and being exposed regularly to these harmful products isn’t always the best.
If you are looking for a natural alternative for your nail care, I will show you how to make your own nail growth concoction that is as natural as can be.
My oil mixture is meant for you if you suffer from brittle nails that easily break. Best of all there is no need to use any chemicals if you want to grow stronger and longer nails!
Use it regularly if you want to grow stronger nails. You can even mix it in with your regular hand moisturizer (it works great for dry and scaly skin in the wintertime).
Make sure to apply the oil overnight as well as during the day and anytime you notice that your hands and nail bed are getting dry.
I have used this nail growth oil as an at home remedy and the results speak for themselves (I will include photos of my hands in the post) .

Weak and brittle nails can be a sign that you have a mineral or vitamin deficiency and this is why it’s important to take a good multivitamin.
Eating healthy is something I always try to do but that doesn’t mean I am getting all my daily requirements of vitamins and minerals.

Essential Oils For Faster Nail Growth
When it comes to essential oils, it’s always good to mix them in with a carrier oil (I like using castor oil for my nails) to get the best results.
Lavender: This essential oil is used to soften, moisturize and strengthen nails.It is a great essential oil because it also protects your nails from infection. You can use it daily and safely (it can also be applied directly to your nails without any other oil).
Lemon: Works by brightening your nails, making them shiny and enhancing the white of your nails. It removes any tint on your nails and the vitamin C found in this oil protects against infections.

Cuticle Oil Making Instructions
In a clean amber glass bottle ( here ) mix:
30 ML Castor oil
5 Drops Rosemary essential Oil
2 Drops Lemon Essential Oil
4 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
When it comes to storing the oil I would highly recommend that you put it in an amber glass bottle (with a dropper) to keep the essential oils from oxidizing and losing their power.
The dropper bottle also makes it easier to apply the oil and is not as messy as just putting the cuticle oil in a regular bottle.
If you have weak and brittle nails and you are looking to grow long natural nails, – I recommend that you try this DIY cuticle oil mixture and let me know how it works for you!
