Wow, just like that and summer is more than halfway over. Where does the time go these days? I feel like since January I’ve been moving non-stop with little time to slow down. Hence why I maybe haven’t been present on the blog so much. Have no fear friends because I’ve still been working on some amazing DIY’s that I can’t wait to share. If you’re close to my age (35), then you may know what I’m talking about or be able to relate a little bit better to this. (Also if we aren’t close in age that’s okay too because this DIY can be used by anyone for any reason!!). When I was in my early-to-mid teens having the thinnest eyebrows was so so popular. So I HAD to have them waxed like clockwork every 2-3 weeks. Couldn’t miss that appointment for anything. Well I’m paying for that now I assure you. Is anyone else with me on this?
Once I got into oils I figured there had got to be something to help stimulate the hair growth and help me grow them back in. I still get my brows cleaned up, but I keep them as full as I can because full and big brows are IN! Who would have thought 20 years ago that we would want our brows back? I sure didn’t, and I’m most definitely sad about it now. So what oil am I using I bet is the question?! Well, my friends, the answer is dōTERRA ‘s Rosemary EO! Before I bought any fancy bottles or anything I literally would just take some castor oil and Rosemary EO and mix in my hand and run right on my eyebrows after my evening routine. I wasn’t too fancy with measurements here as I was just messing around to see if this would help. I was using 1 drop of the EO, and 1 drop maybe 2 of the castor oil. I’ve been doing this just over two months and let me tell you I am finally getting somewhere with this regrowth.
I’m not sure how long it’s going to take but the fact that I can see a difference and see them actually bulking back up has made me so happy. I now have this mix in a dropper bottle. I do not have the mix 50/50 as that’s kind of what it seemed I was doing in my hand when I was mixing. It’s more of 1/4 EO and 3/4 Castor Oil. You can most definitely put more Rosemary in there if you’d like or you can snag some of the empty mascara tubes and make the mixture in there for very easy application. I wanted to go that road but because I’m using it every night I was going through it fast and making it more often than I wanted to. Whichever method works for you the mix is going to be great!
Anyone else out there with me on some eyebrow regrowth journey? I’d love to hear from you!
