Homemade Cuticle Butter

  • Author: Maura White


This DIY cuticle butter recipe is surprisingly simple to make and is perfect for an at-home manicure!



  • 1/4 C. shea butter
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp. jojoba oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Vitamin E oil
  • 15 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 15 drops Geranium essential oil
  • 15 drops Rosemary essential oil
  • Clear Plastic Cosmetic Containers
  • Glass Measuring Cup


Melt the shea butter and coconut oil in your microwave or over the stove in a saucepan. If using a microwave, heat for 30 seconds, stir, then heat for another 30 seconds. Continue with stirring every 30 seconds until completely melted.

Add the jojoba oil and vitamin E oil. Drop in your essential oils and stir well.

Put your empty cosmetic containers on waxed or parchment paper. Pour your oil mixture into each container and let it cool, untouched, for a few hours until it’s solid.


Don’t leave in a hot window or vehicle as your homemade cuticle butter may melt!
