Thank you for this, Susan. I wondered why my nails seem to grow even though I do horrible things like not wear gloves when washing dishes, and gardening (sometimes. I type A LOT. People see my nails and swear I live a life of leisure. Once someone asked me how I grow them so long and before I could say "I have no idea", someone said, "well, its not by doing dishes and typing!". I laughed, because that is exactly what I do on a regular basis.

I am getting better, because I am using your recipes to make nice lotions and all the lovely products are making my hands, skin, hair and nails look a lot better.

I am looking forward to your esters blog. My next project is going to be some of of the facial and hair products you've already covered. I noticed you used esters in some of those, so I am really interested in what you do next.
