While it may not be the first personal-care product that comes to mind for many of us, Castor Oil has been revered by cultures around the world for thousands of years. I remember forever and more, my mum oiling my hair with Castor oil before putting it into plaits. “The hair will be healthy and full forever” she used to say. (If I knew then what I know now… i wouldn’t have done it yelling and screaming 🙂 )
It has many beauty applications and is particularly valuable for the eyes.Much like the natural oils of the skin, castor oil is extremely rich in triglycerides, so when it comes to preserving the delicate skin around the eyes, castor oil may just be the all-in-one eye care product you’ve been looking for.
Castor oil is extremely rich and luxuriously thick. It’s not surprising that this incredibly nutritive oil can be used as a nourishing and clarifying eye cream to maintain the plump suppleness of the skin around the eyes. In Ayurveda it is the main ingredient in “Kajal” or Kohl for the eyes. It is deeply soothing to the eyes themselves, so you don’t have to worry about keeping the oil completely out of your eyes.
Thick, nutritious, and deeply moisturizing, castor oil can also be used to encourage the growth of luxurious eyebrows and eyelashes, or as a grooming “gel” for your brows and lashes. The serum made from this oil, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E Oil will gently condition, thicken, nourish, strengthen and stimulate the lashes and eyebrows without any side effects. If by chance it goes into the eye… its actually good for you! So its a win:win!
Castor oil is thick and sticky, so it tends to stay put. Just a tad applied under the eyes or to the eyelids adds a natural sheen that is lovely either on its own or as a complement to your eye makeup (not to mention the deeply rejuvenating properties of the oil itself on your skin).
Care should however be taken to use only Hexane Free Castor oil. and remember as in everything else… too much of anything is bad!
