I can't quite believe I paid $38 for Dr Hauschka's Neem Nail Oil. I've been using it for over a year and  it really doesn't do anything. I bought it hoping that it would be a natural way (it contains only plant oils  including, obviously, leaf of the Indian Neem tree) to keep my nails from drying out during New York's dry winters. It didn't make a wit of difference. Plus its, well, oily. And that makes it messy to use. It doesn't get absorbed and the excess has to be wiped off with a tissue.

I was curious to see, when I looked at the ingredients before writing this post, that two of them are asterisked: linalool and limonene, which are possibly cytotoxins.

Ingredients: Arachis Hypogaea (Peanut) Oil, Melia Azadirachta (Neem) Leaf Extract, Anthyllis Vulneraria Extract, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria/German Chamomile) Flower Extract, Fragrance (Essential Oil), Linalool*, Limonene*
