Cocoa Butter Cuticle Oil

Dry cuticles can become ragged and split, allowing dirt and germs to invade the matrix of the nail. Keep your cuticles soft and healthy with this chocolate-scented oil.

2 tablespoons jojoba oil

1 tablespoon wheat germ oil

1 tablespoon cocoa butter

Place all ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat gently until the cocoa butter has completely melted. Stir well and cool. Pour into a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. To use, massage a small amount into the base of each nail, gently pushing back the cuticles. Yield: 2 ounces .
