Hi geeks,

After reading on here how marvellous Castor Oil was at making your brows grow I couldn't wait to try it. Only to find that NOWHERE has it!! People in shops were giving me strange looks when I asked for it as it is associated with something naughty :suprised:

What's the next best thing to try on my brows? (Preferably cheap). I hardly have any brows as I'm so fair haired!

Thanks! xx

It's not naughty it's for constipation.

You can buy it in chemists or from Gracefruit.com

Thank you will try Solar Oil, I use plenty of that on my nails anyway!

And nooo it is actually naughty! Every single chemist i tried yesterday told me they can no longer stock it as its associated with bomb making........... :eek:

So glad i'm not the only one! I thought it would have been easy peasy given that so many people on here have recommended it! x

If you google soap making suppliers, you'll be able to find some online suppliers of it.

Apparently citric acid is another product difficult to get of these days in chemists as it too is associated with bomb making :eek:

Thanks girls.

Tried both Holland and Barrett and Boots yesterday but they were both No's.

The girls in H&B did say Citric acid was the same now, very hard to get a hold of!

Will try the Solar Oil but might just try online- don't want the bomb brigade turning up at my door though! :o

Hiya! My local healthstore sells it here. I'm in Cork, Ireland. I bought a bottle of it a few weeks ago and OMG - the DIFFERENCE in my brows (and eyelashes for that matter) - If you want me to send you some of mine, pm me. I've LOADS and won't ever use it all (it only came in the one size, big bottle)

Don't suppose any of you have before and after photos of the effects castor oil has had on your brows have you? .. I'm intrigued to see the difference it has made and am thinking of giving it a go myself!! :) xx

BOMBS? Jeez I had no idea!!

I buy it from Gracefruit.com because for soapmaking - it helps make lovely bubbles.
