What to do against damaged, ridged or brittle nails? To strengthen them sustainably, it is essential to let them evolve in the open air. For several weeks, we therefore forget temporary and semi-permanent varnishes and conscientiously apply a nourishing treatment rich in restorative active ingredients. This homemade treatment, designed by the DIY I MAKE marketplace, combines 3 regenerating vegetable oils (sweet almond, castor and hemp) with lemon essential oil, with cleansing and yellowing properties. With the pipette, we apply a few drops on each nail as well as on the cuticles and we massage well to make the formula penetrate.

The equipment (disinfected with 70 ° alcohol)

  • A 15ml pipette bottle
  • A clean paper towel or tea towel (never used)


  • 1/3 sweet almond vegetable oil
  • 1/3 castor oil
  • 1/3 vegetable oil of hemp
  • 9 drops of lemon essential oil


  1. Pour 1/3 of sweet almond oil into the 15 ml bottle.
  2. Add 1/3 of hemp oil.
  3. Pour 1/3 of castor oil.
  4. Finish with the 9 drops of lemon essential oil.

Be careful, lemon essential oil is photosensitizing, do not use before exposure to the sun. This treatment is also not recommended for pregnant women under 3 months and children under 6 years old, because of the essential oils. Always perform a test in the crease of the elbow to check that you are not having an allergic reaction.
