castor oil and petroleum jelly massages on your lashes can help you grow thicker, fuller eyelashes

Worried about thin and scanty lashes? Grow beautiful, long eyelashes with help of these three natural methods.

There are many factors that can affect the health of your eyelashes. Whether its genetics, age or even a medical condition, you can grow beautiful lashes using these three methods at home.

Castor Oil

Castor oil has been used to promote hair growth all over the body for as long as the world has existed.

Dip a cotton swab in castor oil and gently apply to your lashes before going to bed. Leave it on overnight and then rinse it off with lukewarm water in the morning.

Eyelid Massage

When you massage any area on your body, you’re directly stimulating blood flow to that area. With more blood rushing to your eyelids, more nutrients will reach your eyelashes.

Wash your hands thoroughly, apply a bit of petroleum jelly, and gently massage your eyelids in circular motion for 5 minutes twice a day.


Another way to protect your lashes and help them grow faster and longer is brushing, simply. Brushing your eyelashes will help you get rid of dust and dirt, as well as keep pores unclogged.

Put a few drops of castor oil or petroleum jelly on a soft-bristle eyelash brush and comb them gently in upward strokes.
