Because I am very curious and passionate about natural remedies, a few years ago I wanted to try and check if this vegetal thick oil was really effective…

mascara tips

my routine was to apply the oil with an old toothbrush (I sterilized my brush by letting it a whole night in oxygenated water) every evening just before going to bed…and a couple of months later…wow, indeed…it was thicker and…I believe…longer…. It seems to be effective on eyebrows and on hair too.

What I used to do than, was to regularly keep my old-empty mascara container…and to fill it with a few drops of castor oil (be sure to buy a hexane free, organic and cold pressed castor oil).

That tip is a real 3 in 1.

-you recycle

-you treat

-you apply your mascara.

Castor oil benefits the scalp by improving blood circulation and moisturizing dry, flaky and itchy skin. Castor oil benefits the hair shaft by locking in moisture and the hair roots are nourished by essential fatty acids. With so many great benefits, it is no surprise that this oil is such a popular hair treatment.

Other castor oil benefits for the hair include:

  • Providing the minerals essential to grow strong hair
  • Supplying omega 6 essential fatty acids  for healthy hair
  • Getting vitamin E where it is needed most
  • Strengthening the hair
  • Treating split ends
  • Helping to cure infections (it is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral).

    You have the most beautiful skin! Not only your face skin, but your arms and neck and chest area. Natural works for you! I have “sun” spots on my skin. I don’t like very much. 😦 I love your video. Castor oil is a wonderful oil and you make a great point that only hexane free, organic, cold pressed. Great video!
