Applying castor oil to your lashes

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - So, I warned you that this was going to be my season of Castor Oil, right?  This is my second favorite castor oil use.  Hair growth.  I had been studying castor oil benefits and usage and read that castor oil applied to the eye lash area would help them to grow thicker and longer.  Since this sounded amazing and I had a bottle of castor oil on hand (always!), I decided to give it a try.  I had a little “bald” spot in my lash line so this was the perfect experiment.

For about a 3-month period, after washing my face for bed I would apply a couple drops of castor oil to my fingertips and gently massage into my lashes. I noticed a difference about 6 weeks in after doing this about every other night.  There may have been change sooner but this was near to when I noticed that it HAD actually done something to promote hair growth.  

Naturally I have now added an occasional castor oil lash massage to my nighttime routine.  Castor oil.  Get some.  No kidding, your grandmother was right and the oil from the castor seed plant provides and easy and effective home remedy for many common ailments and conditions.  Harvest Health on Eastern is my stop point in Grand Rapids for this and many other household essentials.
