1 tablespoon beeswax pastilles
3 tablespoons sweet almond oil
8 drops sweet orange essential oil
8 drops lavender essential oil

Directions:
Directions:
Add the shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax pellets and almond oil to a double boiler. If you don't have a double boiler, you can place the ingredients in a glass bowl placed in a pan of hot water or heat in the microwave. If heating in the microwave only do so in 30-second bursts. Heat over medium, stirring frequently, until the ingredients are melted and clear.

Remove the pan (or bowl) from the heat, then whisk in the essential oils.

Pour your DIY cuticle cream into small glass jars right away. If the mixture solidifies, just put it back on the heat until melted then pour into the glass jars. Allow it to cool completely before capping.

To Use
Take a small amount of the DIY cuticle cream and apply to each nail cuticle and around the nail tips.
Massage your fingers and nails for 20-30 seconds, then gently push each cuticle back with a manicure stick. You can use a cuticle trimmer to trim the excess cuticle if desired.
Use warm soapy water to remove excess cream.
