Sweet Almond Oil, first extraction, in a small glass jar

Women have been trying for centuries to make their eyelashes grow longer then usual, with a wide range of products such as mascaras, secret formulas and herbs. The best way to encourage eyelash growth is to use natural remedies, since your eyes are sensitive and you don't want chemicals near them. The results are long-lasting, although the process may take some time. Sweet almond oil is an ideal product for eyelash growth when applied regularly for a period of time, as well as hair growth.

Understanding How Eyelashes Grow

It is important to take care of your eyelashes, as they have a specific growth cycle and it is difficult to find something that will make them grow faster. On average, an eyelash needs several weeks to grow back, with each lash having a life cycle of about six months before falling out naturally (unless they are pulled out, dislodge while rubbing eyes or washing). Sweet almond oil is an ideal way to moisturize your eyelashes and encourage growth when applied regularly and correctly .

Benefits of Sweet Almond Oil

Almond oil is known as a rich source of Vitamin e, fats, magnesium and calcium. This makes almond oil a very moisturizing substance, especially raw almond oil. It is extracted from almond kernels and is a pale gold color. Almond oil adds shine and luster to hair and eyelashes (not to mention the benefits for skin and health). It nourishes the hair and smooths the cuticles, while making it thick, long and strong after a period of time. It can also prevent your hair from falling out.

Using Almond Oil on Eyelashes

Using sweet almond oil for eyelash growth is simple. After washing your face nightly and removing all eye makeup, dip a small eyelash brush in the oil and carefully apply it to your eyelash and comb in. Be very carefully so you don't get it in your eyes. You can also use a Q-tip to drag oil along the lash line to seep into it. A few drops should do the trick massaged into your eyelashes and eyelids. Make sure it does not drip into your eyes. Do this only at night, and leave it to soak in while you sleep. Do this each and every night for four weeks, and you should see a significant difference in the appearance and growth of your eyelashes. Continue doing it for maximum effect for when your eyelashes grow in next.
