I get often asked if I use essential oils for my animals. I have three cats, that I show sometimes. The answer is cautious yes. I share about it more on my vlog. I have written also a blog about it earlier. A lot of people use essential oils also for their dogs and horses.

Essential oils for stronger nails

how-to-use-essential-oils

Sometimes I have thought about, how you get used to your nails and think that that’ s the way they are always going to look like. The history with my nails has changed a lot! I had very good nails growing up and as a teenager. Than they got worse (I believe due to my diet). I had acrylic nails for years and two years ago I notices that my nails were very long and strong. I can’t really bend them. Something had clearly changed, because they use to break all the time.

My number one tip for strong nails are green vegetables like spinach and broccoli. I put them icy in my morning smoothie and add some green powder too. That is the only change I have made to my diet addition to cutting back a lot of diary. Coconut oil gets into my nails a lot, because I dilute my essential oils almost daily. I have read that almond oil is also good for the nails.

Here are some tips for improving your nails with essential oils:

  • Calendula oil is great for nails and cuticles. Add calendula oil or lotion for your DIY nail products
  • Tea tree oil is good for treating nail fungus (read more here about taking care of your feet with oils). Add two drops of tea tree oil to two table spoons of almond oil and apply it to your nails and cuticles.
  • For other infections in your nails and cuticles you can use eucalyptus or patchouli oil in same ratio as tea tree oil.

Essential oils for problems with feet?

essentialoils-feet

Different problems with feet

Celluses, infected bunions and ingrown toenails can be painful, even every day. Especially if you work on your feet. You can relief problems with feet with essential oils, walking bare foot and going to pedicurist.

Calluses

Calluses are thickened skin and dead skin cells. There can be a hard core in the calluse that is from dead skin cells and points to live tissue. That can cause pain, when it hits nerves. Rub few drops of lemon oil to the calluse. Cover it with something for 20 minutes.

Calluses in feet and hands

Calluses that don’t have hard core, don’t often hurt, unless they are in a difficult spot. They might cause the feet to get more tired also. Calluses may cause the weight not to get evenly distributed. People who work with their hands or play instruments can get calluses in their hands. You can treat them same way with lemon oil.

Infected bunion

Infected bunion is located in the side of the big toe. It can be red or soar. Some people get their bunion infected more easily in wrong kid of shoes. Two drops of tea tree oil will help with treating broken skin. You can also put your feet in the hot water, where there is few drops of tea tree oil.

Ingrown toenails

Ingrown toenails can press against skin tissue that can cause pain and inflammation. Sometimes right cutting technique can help with the problem. Don’t cut the toenails too short and always cut them straight horizontally. Don’t make them round in the edges. You can soak inflamed toenail in a hot water that has few drops of tea tree oil.

Tips for taking care of your feet:

  • Soften your calluses in a hot water and try to reduce them softly with foot scraper.
  • By adding two drops of lavender to coconut oil, you can get a wonderful foot lotion.
  • You can pirk up your feet by putting two drops of peppermint oil to your foot lotion/coconut oil.
  • If you suffer from sweaty feet, bathe your feet daily in a sea salt water. You can add two drops of eucalyptus/ peppermint.
  • You can increase the blood stream in your feet by rubbing them. While you put your lotion in them, rub them at the same time.

Self made handwashing liquid/ washing liquid for diaperbag

käsipesuneste

It is recommended to use glass jars/bottles instead of plastic with essential oils, because they might hurt the plastic ones. I use however my old plastic bottles, so I’m not too concerned about that. This washing liquid is naturally chemical and fragrance free.

  • 1/5 of the bottle doTerra’s cleaning concentrate/ dr Bronner’s baby castile soap/ liquid Marseille soap
  • fill rest of the bottle with water
  • depending of your bottle size, put 10-20 drops of lemon and tea tree oil (lemon disinfects and teatree oil is antiseptic)

Shake always before use.
