Grow Longer, Sexier Lashes with 1 Natural Ingredient

lashes

Ladies! Want longer, thicker lashes? Thicker eyebrows? 

If so, you can say goodbye to false lashes and those toxic store-bought lash growth serums. Instead do your self a huge favor and go pick up a bottle of organic castor oil and some Q-tips. That’s all you need!

This is the kind I use…

Castor oil comes from a seed native to India, and has been used for centuries for medicinal remedies as well as promoting hair growth.

Before bed, apply some castor oil on a Q-tip and line your lash lines and your eyebrows. You don’t need that much, just enough to see a thin visible line of oil on your skin.  In the morning, wash it off gently.

Caution! Be sure to avoid the inner corners of your eyes, and only line the outside of your lash lines – lining the inner lash line can clog tear ducts and clogged tear ducts are not cute! So please do this slowly and carefully and wash your eyes ASAP if any gets in your eye or in the corners.

Do this 3X a week and you’ll be batting sexier lashes in less than a month. Oh heyy! Oh, and it costs under $4. See ya, Latisse!

You can also add castor oil to hair masks to help grow those locks out too! For example, 1/4 cup of warm castor oil, 2 tsp. coconut oil, and 6 rosemary drops and massage it into your hair and scalp. Leave on for 30 minutes and wash out. Do this 3X a week as well.

BONUS: castor oil scalp massages have been proven as a powerful remedy for men and women who have thinning hair/hair loss.
