You are tired of lash extensions, false lashes, or eyelash growth serums? You would like to try natural methods of growing healthy and long eyelashes?

Check out our natural remedies: We tell you how to get longer eyelashes without any side effects!

It is one of the best-kept secrets in the world of natural beauty and the number one home remedy when you want to have longer lashes: castor oil!

Do you think that’s utter rubbish? You better try!

How does castor oil help you to grow longer lashes?

Castor oil is used not only for increasing growth of eyelashes, but also for growing your hair and thicker eyebrows.

It contains omega 9 fatty acids, which are nourishing to both the hair and the follicle, as well as the surrounding skin. It includes antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which in combination with a rich source of nutrients aids in encouraging hair growth. Since the oil is very thick, it may help to prevent hair loss simply by coating the hair and protecting them from falling out.

NOTE: Always use a 100% pure, organic, and cold pressed castor oil.

How to use the castor oil for growing long eyelashes:

Wash your face and make sure that there’s no make-up on your eyes. Then, use your fingers to apply the castor oil from the roots to the ends of the lashes. You only need a drop or two to cover the lashes on each eye. Always apply the oil before bedtime and wash it off when you wake up in the morning.

How long do eyelashes take to grow when using the oil?

Some people claim to see the first results after only 1 week, most say that they saw a clear improvement after 2 weeks. If you want a dramatic effect, be patient: After 4 months your lashes may have reached their maximal length.

How to get longer eyelashes? Other home remedies that can help!

We collected four other tips and tricks that you could try if you’re wondering how to get massive eyelashes:

  • Vaseline is also great for getting longer lashes! It stimulates hair and lashes growth. Apply it before going to bed in the evening and wash it off when you wake up in the morning. It can be put on with your fingers or a thoroughly washed brush from an old mascara.
  • Massage Eyelids Massaging the eyelid area and near the lashes helps increase blood flow and circulation, which encourages your lashes to grow! You can also do this for your hair by massaging the scalp. Just use your fingers (be sure to wash your hands first) to gently massage the eyelid area along the lashes. You can also use a few drops of oil, e.g. olive. Preferably, do it once a day or at least a few times a week.
  • Diet You can also help your eyelashes grow longer by improving your diet. Supplements like silica or biotin which are the ingredients of our Chewable Hair Vitamins , support hair growth and also affect skin and nails. The easiest way is to take it as a daily supplement. The noticeable effect can be seen after about three months. Protein-rich foods like eggs and millet, as well as, foods that contain vitamins A, C and E are also very helpful.

    In Addition, you can use Women’s Best Vitamins to supply your lashes, hair and nails with an extra boost of energy. 
  • Ditch the eyelash curler Stop using it! Eyelash Curlers weaken the lashes and can cause breakage. Also, consider having some breaks from wearing make-up from time to time and change your mascara every 3-6 months.
