A few days ago I wrote about the Wonder Oil that makes your eyelashes grow. Here's an addition to that article.
The Wonder Oil is also known as Castor oil. The oil has a very thick structure. You can water it down with some almond oil. This has a nourishing effect as well! It's used in a lot of cosmetics. I'm only going to focus on the effect of external use of Castor oil.
I have done some research about this oil, because originally it's used as a laxative, in case of internal use. But it seems that it's effective on problem skin and it makes hair grow (faster) too! That's good news for the ladies with a bad haircut.
A while ago my mom suffered from food poisoning. This made her eyebrows fall out. She had thicker eyebrows than I have. Drawing them back on just wasn't an option. So I told her to use the oil on her eyebrows, since it worked on my lashes too. She could at least try it, right? She used it every night for about a week and the results were incredible. Her eyebrows grew back! They grew back thicker than before. So the oil doesn't only make your eyelashes longer, but it also makes your eyebrows thicker. I have a little gap in one of my eyebrows and I started used the oil on it, so as soon as I see results, i'll let you guys know!
Not only your eyebrows and eyelashes take advantage of this wonderful oil, but your hair also. I haven't experienced it yet, but it seems that the Castor Oil makes your hair grow faster, thicker and more healthy. Apparently when one of your hair falls out and you're using Castor oil, the new hair that grows back will grow back thicker than the old hair. Besides that it's nourishing for the scalp too. To use this oil on your head, you apply some on your scalp only, because washing it out is a hell of a job. After you massaged it on your scalp, put a cloth or towel on your head and wait for about an hour before you wash it out. You can water it down with some almond oil if you think the Castor oil is too thick.
What I have also read is that it's very useful for acne, swimmer's itch, wrinkles (especially around the eye area), warts, eczema and hard skin on your feet. BUT it's never scientific tested or proven. These are only observations of people who have used it for those purposes. Besides everyone reacts differently on it.
I bought my bottle of 110 ml at a local drugstore for €2 something. It was very cheap! Since it has a very thick structure, you only use a little. So it takes a while before you run out of product! The ingredient is Oleum Ricini. Warning: this oil should not be used by pregnant women without consulting your doctor. (I don't know if it counts for external or internal use, but I don't want anything on my conscience!)
Haha, I wrote a lot more than I expected. I hope this article has been useful to you. If you have any questions, don't be a stranger and ask me! :)
