    ROD 4/26/2006 Nail Polish Day Cuticle Oi

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    The Egyptians were staining their fingernails with henna back in 3000 B.C., but nail paint was invented in China to show social rank. When the use of nail paint spread, it continued to signify social order - with red at the top. Queen Nefertiti painted her fingernails and toenails ruby red. Cleopatra used a deep rust red. But, it wasn't just women who were getting manicures. Egyptian, Babylonian and Roman military leaders had their fingernails painted before they went into battle.

    ROD 4/26/2006 Nail Polish Day Cuticle Oil Recipe

    Cuticle Oil Recipe

    You can make your own cuticle oil by the gallon:


    extra virgin light olive oil
    canola oil
    sesame seed oil
    rice bran oil
    apricot kernel oil
    grape seed oil
    peach oil
    vitamin E oil
    jojoba oil (etc, any natural non-mineral oil)
    plus add a few drops of a soothing essential oil (aromatherapy scents),
    plus a small amt. of tea tree oil (for disinfections properties)


    Pour it into your own empty polish bottles, or 2 oz plastic bottles, and label it with your "brand" labels made at your printers (the same ones who make your biz cards). You can use it during service for buffing, and retail the 1/2 oz brush on and 2 oz rub in for home use. Also, use it before paraffin wax, in conjunction w/ heavy cream (like Eucerin or Udder Balm), and for massage w/ manicure or pedicures.
