Dill Nail Strengthener

As my daughter and I continue to research and try out natural beauty recipes, she brought up nail strengtheners. A search through my herb books led me to this recipe for an herbal recipes that is easily made in the kitchen.

Crush fresh or dry dill seeds and make an infusion out of them. Use the infusion to strengthen your nails by soaking nails in it for 15 minutes.

To make the infusion, pour 1 pint of boiling water over 1 oz crushed dry dill seeds or 3 oz fresh dill seeds. Let step for 15 minutes and strain.
