Extend The Life Of Your Mascara

Mascaras can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Did you know you should replace it after just a few months so as to avoid bacteria growth?

Well, Lavender oil to the rescue. Add a drop of Lavender Oil to your tube when you first open it and extend its life.

It’s best to do this when you open a new tube but I’ve added it to old tubes too.

Some say Lavender Oil will kill and control the mites that could possibly already living in your lashes. Doesn’t that sound gross?

The lavender essential oil can also promote lash growth plus strengthen and volumize your lashes not to mention it makes them smell, too.


Add 1 drop of Lavender Oil to your mascara to extend its life. Get rid of mites and promote lash growth.
