Additionally, both olive oil and vitamin E are wonderful nail-strenghtening and moisturizing agents.

  1. Bring the water to a boil and pour in into a heat-proof glass container that is large enough to fit your hands.
  2. Add the calendula flowers and let them steep for 10-15 minutes.(15 minutes)
