I was taught hot oil treatments using cuticle oil, (what you use is up to you.. but i have my preference)..I warm my bowl.. keep it on a flat wheat bag put gauze strips into the oil, then wrap one around each finger. the hands then go into a plastic liner, then towling mitts. You can buy bigger bottles of cuticle oil if you look around, and it doesnt have to be top shelf so to speak.. you can get some very good ones for a decent price.. a little goes along way!Can I ask a stupid question too?? What oil do you use when you do these hot oil manicures? I pressume quite a bit is needed? do you use your solar oil? surely this would work out quite exspensive
I live in America, so I don't know how much elsewhere, but it tends to be $5.00 or so and it will probably be double that for you. I dont burn the candle in the salon, there are professional sizes that you can get without the wick. All you do is put it on a candle warmer and it is completely melted within an hour and half to two hours, they should have candle warmers for sale on their site too. I have the smaller sizes with the wick available for retail. They sell great for gifts too.Thanks Girls
Techjaylee: I have had a look at the Earthly website, I see it is an american company. How much does it cost to order the candle plus p&P?
Do you burn the candle and then use the melted product?
Thanks for all your tips
If it works for you then its fine.. sounds like pretty much what i do.. except i use mitts rather then a lamp..I was taught to put the oil into a bowl, soak the gauze in it, then wrap the gauze over the hands and then place them under an infra red lamp constantly checking the temp by feeling the gauze regularly and asking client - although reading others responses now im not so sure....?
Just felt I needed to point out that it is important you are qualified to use essential oils,I note,' Retired',is a nail geek not skin and so yes,she may be able to purchase these oils but no she shouldn't use them unless qualified:green:Sorry to be the bearer of bad news,however you can purchase pre blended and these wont pose a problem for you to use at all.No you don't Sallys do a whole bunch of carrier oils and pure essential oils
