Whether you wash your hands all winter to stave off the flu or all spring because you have been getting mucky in the garden, your cuticles take a beating. You may not think of them much in general, but when they dry out and start to crack you will certainly take notice. Dry cuticles can tear and boy, does it hurt!

To make an all-natural healing cuticle balm you need healing ingredients and a wee bit of time. It’s a very simple recipe.

Apply cuticle balm to your nail beds and rub in 3-4 times a day or after hand washing. Soon those sore fingers will be a thing of the past!
