Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I had severe issues with two fingernails, and a third was starting to show symptoms. The nails had receding and rough cuticles, pitting on the nails, and were peeling in layers. I had to keep them very short, and they looked awful.

When I received my Premium Starter Kit, I began using Lavender essential oil on those three nails. I would put one drop on one finger and rub it into all three nails every day. A little went a long way! Within a month, the nails had improved.

There are still some signs of psoriasis on the nails, but they are no longer peeling or painful. I now use Lavender oil about 2 times per week to keep them healthier. My doctor had told me that there was nothing that could help my fingernails, but I am thankful that she was wrong!
