With lemon, lavender and myrrh essential oils

Nourish nails and cuticles with this award-winning nail & cuticle oil treatment which promotes healthy, flexible nails whilst nourishing and softening cuticles. Long-term use encourages nail growth and minimises risk of nail breakage. Used on fashion shoots for Elle magazine (March 2017) and London Fashion week (2017, 2019) by professional nail expert Roxanne Campbell. Winner of Beauty Shortlist Award for Best Nail Treatment / Therapy / Breakthrough 2019.

  • Main ingredient is organic jojoba, which moisturises and restores flexibility to nails
  • All ingredients carefully selected for their strengthening and nourishing properties to make a rich yet easily absorbed formulation
  • 100% natural ingredients with no synthetic fragrances; essential oils provide a light, subtle scent
  • Handbag friendly: UV-filtered glass rollerball format allows for convenient application on the go whilst maintaining the freshness of the natural ingredients

Dab roller across nails & cuticles and massage in. Use at least twice a day and after manicures. If you haven't used nail/cuticle oil before, then try using it 4 times a day for a couple of weeks. To avoid contamination, only use the rollerball applicator only on clean, dry skin.

For nail care tips read my blog post here.

I can also make this available in 10 / 30 ml dropper bottles - handy for nail techs, as well as a custom essential oil-free formulation for those that can't tolerate essential oils / fragrance! Please contact me to order / enquire.

Store in a cool, dry place out of sunlight. For best before date, see base of bottle. Shelf life unopened is 12 months. Once opened, use within 6 months and before expiry date.


Amber UV filtered glass aromatherapy bottle with rollerball applicator. Glass is the best way to store oil products and the amber colour minimises oxidation of oils.
