A few weeks ago my cousin told me about putting Lavender Oil into your mascara.  Y'all know that I am kind of a mascara freak :) so I had to try it. Especially once she told me that is will help my lashes grow longer and thicker :) I mean, who doesn't want longer thicker lashes, right? Also, it is supposed to help keep your mascara less clumpy.  

"Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a scent that’s a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm. It’s this dynamic aroma that has made the flower a classic for perfumes, soaps, fresheners, and beauty products."

It was super easy to do, I simply got one of my mascara tubes (yes, I have several tubes of mascara and I use different tubes depending on what type of make-up I am doing ... and that is another blog in itself) and my Lavender Oil. I added 1 drop of Lavender Oil to my Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara, mixed it up real good, and applied the mascara to my lashes.  

The outcome was wonderful, my lashes gave a fresh smell for the majority of the morning.  They were thick looking, and I had good mascara all day long.  I have since used this mascara three times and each time I have really enjoyed it, it gives me a fresh feeling.  I will definitely add Lavender Oil to my future / other mascaras. I did not experience any negative side effects, I thought that my eyes might water, burn, or itch having lavender that close to my eyeball BUT I experienced no such thing. 

"Lavender essential oil isn’t just a favorite because of its classic scent—it’s also highly versatile. From skin care products to relaxing routines, this oil can infuse many areas of your life."

Some other uses of Lavender Oil (these look great, definitely going to try some of these, starting with the body scrub) that Young Living Suggests are - 

·        Treat yourself to this well-loved aroma by adding a few drops of oil to lotions, shampoos, and skin care products.
·        Create a spa-like retreat by combining 1 cup Epsom salt and 4 drops oil and adding to a hot bath.
·        Make a basic homemade body scrub with coconut oil, sugar, and Lavender essential oil.
·        Unwind with a Lavender-infused neck or back massage.
·        Use Lavender as part of your evening routine. Rub oil on the bottom of your feet before bed or spritz your pillow with distilled water and Lavender mixed in a spray bottle.
·        Create a DIY room freshener with Lavender or diffuse it to banish stale odors.
