  • I love these informative videos. I would appreciate however, if you would include an expiration date on each.

  • I just got Geranium Bourbon! I’ll be printing this recipe for my DIY file. It would be nice to know how many tubes this will fill. It looks like about a 1.5 to 2 oz yield, so I will probably half the recipe, but still, I wonder how many tubes I’ll end up with. Hmmm…

    1. It looks like most lip balm tubes are 3/16 of an ounce. So you’ll probably end up with about 10 tubes!

  • Hi! Thanks for the wonderful recipe! Can’t wait to try it out! Just wondering, how long will it last and should it be refrigerated? I have not watched the video so if that is addressed I missed it. TY PT

  • I’ve been looking for a cuticle recipe and I love the smell of geranium!!! All I have to buy are the tubes. I will be looking into those ASAP! Thank you for the recipe. PT rocks

  • I really love these videos. I wish there was a way to save them to find easier in the future. I definitely want to try and make this cuticle balm.

    1. I like using Pinterest for this sort of thing. Makes it easy to categorize my saves and quick to find later. This cuticle recipe is definitely one I’ll be using and needing again later!

  • I have the worst cuticles and nothing has helped. I can’t wait to try this recipe. Thank you for sharing 🙂

  • Totally making this cuticle balm today!! Thanks Retha for making the live diy video of this so fun. Cuticle balm is one of my favorite diys.

  • I have everything but Ho Wood. Is the Ho Wood used more for its scent profile or therapeutic properties? Any suggestions for replacements?

  • I already love the smell of geranium and gardening has done a number on my nails and cuticles. Will definitely be trying this! Thanks!

  • I made this for work using Lavender and Geranium awhile back and it helped greatly. I work in a factory and around cardboard all day. our hands and cuticles get so dry and cracked. This helps greatly!

  • This looks so good and pretty easy! I just ordered Geranium Bourbon and can’t wait to try it out! I recently took a photo of my manicure and saw how HORRIFIC my cuticles look…!

  • I loved the video on how to make the Geranium Bourbon Cuticle Balm, the video was very simple and easy to follow.

  • I have been under a ton of stress lately & haven’t been doing many essential oil DIY’s…. This is just what I need to get going again! THANK YOU PT!

  • In love the smell of this. Rose feels too old fashion and this is a nice version of the rose aroma.

  • My cuticles always seem to be dry, especially in the summer when I’m outside gardening (a fave hobby).

  • Can’t wait to try this! Sounds wonderful and I’ve been looking for more uses for my Ho Wood. Thanks for sharing this.

  • After watching the live video today on YouTube, I immediately got out my supplies and made this Cuticle Balm. I didn’t have Geranium Bourbon so I substituted Geranium Egyptian. I filled 7 lip balm tubes with the mixture. Wow! I can’t believe how much this softened my rough cuticles! I can’t wait to share some of my extra tubes with my friends and family. Absolutely LOVE this recipe! Thanks Plant Therapy!

  • I just saw the live. So once you applied it to cuticle, do you massage it in or wipe it off afterwards?

  • OMG!! My nails need this so bad and I have all of the ingredients!! I guess I have a weekend project!! Thank you for posting!!

  • My nails and cuticles are in such bad shape. Is there anything i can use instead of ho wood

    1. You can substitute other oils that are good for your skin like Lavender, Frankincense, Myrrh or Elemi.

  • I love the video on how to made the Geranium Bourbon Cuticle Balm it was so simple and easy to make. I need to make this ASAP.

  • This sounds great! What does the honey do? Can it be substituted with something else or left out all together? Also, I like to melt the waxes together and then add the essential oils once off the heat. This recipe says to mix the essential oils with the jojoba oil and then add to heat, would this effect the oils benefit at all?

  • This sounds interesting. Can you sub Geranium Egyptian for Geranium Bourbon or does Geranium Bourbon have unique properties for this?

    1. Both varieties are good for your skin and would work well in this recipe. The main difference is that Geranium Bourbon is better for reducing redness in skin while Geranium Egyptian is good for aging skin.

  • My nails really need this, I’m making it today! Thanks for all the great recipes! #iloveplanttherapy

    1. My skin and nails really took a hit after receiving chemo. Looking forward to making this and helping my cuticles!
