The Love of Luscious Lashes

The Love of Luscious Lashes


As crunchy as I am, I won't live without a fine tube of mascara.  My eyes need it to be seen and my psyche needs it to feel pretty here in wild Wyoming where the elements are tough on a girl! With a drop of this and a drop of that, you can turn that fine tube of mascara into a conditioner, lash lengthener and, keep your tube bacteria free in the doing, yee haw! Let's start with pure Rosemary essential oil... Regular use of rosemary helps to stimulate follicles, making hair grow longer and stronger. It is also believed that rosemary oil slows down premature hair loss and graying of the hair. Rosemary can protect the cell membranes that help to neutralize the action of free radicals generated by uncontrolled oxidation reactions that take place in the tissues. It can also help to inhibit the formation of the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) directly implicated in alopecia. Next up, pure Lavender essential oil... Lovely Lavender is antimicrobial and regenerative, it's the perfect addition to your fine tube of mascara to keep nasty bacteria away. It's a well-documented fact that bacteria eventually invades that dark, moist cosmetic environment after a certain amount of time.  Bacterial growth in your mascara tube can translate to styes and chalazion, common eye issues that can take a week or more to get under control and may require an eye specialist's attention.  And of course, the added regenerative talents of pure Lavender are just the properties you want to keep hair follicles healthy and producing. I know I come off as a broken record but seriously, pure EOs are about as versatile as they come. When they're not helping you recover from an epic cold or flu virus, they're lengthening and conditioning your lashes, genius! :-)
