Did you know that essential oils can promote healthy hair growth? I put Lavender, Cedarwood, and Rosemary in my shampoo, and have noticed a big difference in the thickness and fullness of my hair since using them.
But we can also use essential oils to help promote healthy hair growth for our EYELASHES!
All I do is put ONE drop of Lavender Essential Oil in my mascara tube right when I open it for the first time, and I’m good to go! Then I just apply like normal.
(IMPORTANT: I DO NOT put a drop in each time I apply – just once when I open a new tube.)
Some people also like to add a drop of Cedarwood in their mascara too, but I’ve been happy with just the Lavender.
Some people have had issues with other kinds of mascara (read through the comments) but it has worked well with the mascara brands that I use the most
I have been doing this for years now, and I can definitely tell a difference in the length and thickness of my lashes!
IMPORTANT: I personally only feel comfortable using Young Living essential oils. There are virtually no labeling requirements for essential oils, so it’s extremely important to know the company that you buy from and the source of the oils. Please please (PLEASE!) don’t just go out and buy “lavender essential oil”. Many store brands adulterate their oils with chemicals, fillers, and use the hybrid LAVANDIN instead of LAVANDULA AUGUSTIFOLIA. There are uses for Lavandin, but this is not one of them.
Young Living’s lavender is 100% lavandula augustifolia (I got to participate in the lavender harvest last year!)
I’d love to hear from those of you who have tried the same thing! Were your lashes longer and thicker too?
