When combined with other treatment methods, use of natural products, both topically and in the diet, can encourage eyelash growth, strengthen them and make them thicker. This is particularly important if the lashes have been traumatized from pulling, or if they have become thinner with age or due to medical conditions such as hypotrichosis.

You should avoid getting the oil in your eyes. After leaving the oil on for the night, wash it off the following morning.
