How To Make nail treatment for brittle breaking nails

  • 1
    I simply took one tablespoon molasses and stirred it into a 1/2 cup of hot tap water and drank each night.

    You can drink it plain, in hot tea or mixxed in milk (doesn't matter). It was wonderful as a drink in water and better to me than most hot beverages.

    Before I started, I cut my fingernails down so I would be sure of the results. The nails that are growing now are thicker and stronger than I had before. I plan to continue this in the future as the drink was wonderful.
