How to Get Longer Lashes Naturally

Camellia Oil for Eyelash Growth?

If you've read my previous post on Eyelashes, you'll note my love of lashes.  Long, thick, curled, luscious lashes are sought after by woman of many cultures as it is a symbol of femininity and sex appeal.

I recently ordered some Camellia Oil for my hair from HennaSooq.com.   When I received the oil I loved it and the consistency was really light and smooth.  Camellia Oil, also known as tea seed oil, promises to promote hair growth, so I decided to do an experiment.

EXPERIMENT:  Put Camellia Oil on my lashes (right along the roots) at night time right before bed each to see if it would increase the fullness and length of my lashes.

I started this experiment about a month ago, and to my surprise by week 2, I notice an incredible difference in my lashes! They were definitely fuller, thicker and LONGER!  They also seem stronger with increased elasticity as well.  I decided to research Camellia oil and realized that it is one of the main ingredients in many of the eyelash growth solutions! Who knew? Many naturalistas opt for Camellia oil as opposed to olive oil to condition their lashes as the oil is very light.  

Interesting Fact:  Japanese tea seed oil is used for setting the hair of sumo wrestlers.

Have you tried Camellia Oil on your lashes?   Would you be interested in trying it?


  1. Hi! Hummm I may have to give this a try, my lashes are super short and even mascara really doesn't give them a dramatic look. My only question is do you think that this would work if you have really sensitive eyes? I wear contacts and even the slightest change in my contact solution can cause my eyes to swell. Let me know...thks!

  2. hummm.. to be on the safe side, I would check with your eye doc and see what he/she says! You always want to be careful when wearing contacts. Unfortunately, there is no other place on your body where you can test it out first to see if you will be sensitive to it or not. Hope this was helpful!

  3. Hi, could you please explain how do you apply the oil on your eyelashes' roots? do you just use your fingers or something else? i just got the camellia oil from hennasooq today and i'm pretty excited to try it on my hair and skin :)

  4. @Anonymous - oh goodie! sure! I just put a small drop on my finger tip and then I gently apply it to the base of my upper lashes. that's it!

  5. Nice post!

    Castor oil and olive oil are also effective in generating eyelash growth.

    Glad to find you blog. ♥
