With your risk of fungal infections (especially toenail fungus) increasing during the winter months, consider adding a few drops of these anti-fungal essential oils to your nail and cuticle oil. The essential oils will protect your nails from infection and will also help treat existing infections and their symptoms.
- TEA TREE ESSENTIAL OIL
Tea tree oil is a powerful antiseptic that can prevent fungus and help to repair and strengthen damaged or discolored nails.
- THYME ESSENTIAL OIL
Thyme oil has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that are ideal for keeping nails and cuticles healthy.
- BLUE TANSY ESSENTIAL OIL
A relative of chamomile, this calming essential oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-histamine, and anti-fungal properties to help treat fungal infections of the skin, nails, or scalp.
- CLOVE ESSENTIAL OIL
Clove is also an anti-fungal oil that helps to heal fungal infections and protects nails and cuticles from infection.
Keeping nails and cuticles healthy can be easy when using the right ingredients. When making your own blend of oils, be sure to use therapeutic grade organic oils in order to avoid toxins and additives that can be harmful to your health. In addition to topically treating nails, a diet rich in healthy fats, such as avocados, nuts and seeds, and antioxidants can also help in keeping your nails and cuticles healthy.
Keep a bottle of your favorite oil in your purse or bag so that you can apply it throughout the day, especially in the winter. A convenient stainless steel roller makes it easy to apply without any waste. It also smells great, which is always a bonus!
Whether you choose to make your own blend or use Clearly NAIL, remember to apply morning and night for best results.
