I'm breathing down your neck these days Kim Kardashian! Because I've been successful with a homemade serum with castor oil, which I've used on my eyelashes for a month now. Relax - no! The bottom pic is not the total honest result of that. The picture to the right is from the very last time, I had fake eyelashes put on, and where the eyelash technician noted that I had grown many new eyelashes since the last time she worked on them, hence she was able to put many more of the fake once on me... Oh yes my desire for bold, long lashes has sometimes driven me to eyelash extensions - fully aware that they destroy and thin out in my own, and that the glue that's used contains formaldehyde. I've also tried conventional lash serums, but these serums typically contain several parabens and other problematic substances that I can no longer bring myself to put on my skin, which is why I've researched and found a sustainable and natural solution that's effective - and much cheaper. 

CASTOR OIL FOR hair growth

Besides B-vitamins and sunshine castor oil is another excellent "fertilizer" too promote hair growth. Castor Oil is a supreme oil, which over the years has been used by healers for a wide range of ailments — from constipation to colds and fever, and even as treatment against parasitical worms. Castor oil is claimed to be one of the best remedies there is.

Castor Oil is tasteless and odorless oil that is extracted from Castor seeds obtained from the castor plant, which is scientifically known as Ricinus Communis. It's a highly viscous oil, which makes it difficult to work with in general skin care - but which, in turn, works well in hair care and as a lip gloss.

The germicidal, insecticidal and fungicidal properties of Ricin and Ricinoleic acid that is present in castor oil protects the scalp and hair from microbial and fungal infections, the two prime causes of hair loss. In addition to this, the oil easily penetrates the skin barrier and the fatty acids in it nourishes hair and prevent the scalp from drying by retaining moisture well.

4 eyelash serums recipes

First thing to do when you want to make your eyelashes healthier, is to take proper care of them. There are some simple ways to help your eyelashes grow. Remember, cures won't work the same for different people. It may take a few weeks or a few months for the cure to work. Also you may have to try more than one, before you find the cure that's right for you.

You should only use the eyelash serum right before bedtime, as a bit of oil can seep into the eyes when you're active - and that will give you a bit of a misty lens.

Note: The below serums works well on the eyebrows too.

Use only organic and cold pressed castor oil.

1. Castor Oil

Castor oil alone would give noticeable results - try this:

  1. Use a clean mascara brush or cotton swap, to put castor oil on the lashes and into the lash lines before going to bed.
  2. If needed you can gently clean the corners of the eyes with a wet cotton swap to remove excess oil.
  3. Leave the oil on overnight, and rinse off in the morning.
  4. Use daily for 2-3 months for best result.

2. Castor Oil and Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe vera chas a lot of vitamins and nutrients

The best is obviously to use fresh aloe vera - if you have an aloe vera plant, you learn how to make your own gel here. If not, then buy a gel without too many additives like this one

  1. Mix 2 tbsp. aloe vera gel with 2 tbsp. castor oil
  2. Use a clean mascara brush or cotton swap, to put the blend on the lashes and into the lash lines before going to bed.
  3. If needed you can gently clean the corners of the eyes with a wet cotton swap to remove excess oil.
  4. Leave the on overnight, and rinse off in the morning.
  5. Use daily for 2-3 months for best result.

3. Castor oil and olive oil

Olive oil is rich in Vitamin E and other nutrients that are particularly good for the skin and hair, and it can help make the eyelashes thicker, and to keep them dark.
