For centuries now, many of us have always thought of honey to be solely used for one purpose – as a sweetener or food condiment. As of late, many are finding honey to serve several different purposes whether it be cosmetic, health, or even as a disinfectant. After some research, it has also been found that honey serves to help strengthen nails and prevent nail infections such as nail fungus or ingrown nails.
This bee-produced condiment seems to work miracles for individuals who are suffering from weak, brittle, or unsightly nails. By creating a soak and using it a few times a week, honey can help improve the health of your nails significantly. To create the soak, get a medium sized bowl and mix together 4 tablespoons of heated olive oil, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 1 egg that is whisked. Soak your nails into this mix for fifteen minutes or so then thoroughly wash it off using only water. You can repeat this process three times a week for a 3-4 week period. At that point, you can expect to see your nails to be improved and stronger!
