Since I have really short eyelashes and don’t want to pay a well-known beauty brand big bucks for their magical eyelash growth serum, I decided I would make my own. Plus, I am not fond of all the unknown chemicals that these companies add into their products. I am trying to go through life now with a more natural approach even though it’s a little more expensive. My family and I are important to me and so is our health, so it’s worth it.
The Ultimate DIY All Natural Eyelash Growth Serum
First, you’ll need to get all of your products, some of which can be found locally at natural health and food stores or you can get them online.
I ended up buying the ingredients on Amazon since I had gift cards to use. You can find them with links below.
- 100% Pure Castor Oil
Castor oil is the essential ingredient for hair growth. It’s used for many things but this is one thing it’s great at replenishing since it’s comprised of vitamin E, minerals, proteins and antibacterial properties. Apart from that, castor oil is also rich in triglyceride variant of fatty acids. It is these properties that makes castor oil an effective healing agent.
Coconut oil is great for just about anything. Don’t believe the media that has talked about how coconut oil is bad for you recently if consumed; It’s a bunch of hocus pocus. Anyways, coconut oil is great at moisturizing and fighting fungus and dandruff. Yes, you can get it on your eyelashes. It also contains a bunch of natural fatty acids which are great for strengthening and promoting hair growth.
- Vitamin E blend contains rosehip and jojoba oil
Vitamin E oil is an excellent all round skin protector that helps to combat cell damage caused by free radicals found in common everyday contaminants and air pollution. Vitamin E is an important vitamin required for the proper function of many organs in the body. It is also an antioxidant. This means it helps to slow down processes that damage cells; it repairs damaged hair follicles and encourages hair growth.
- Empty Mascara Tubes (pack of 6)
My sister uses these and swears by them, so I had to pick them up. There are cheaper options but most of them had some bad reviews that they leaked or broke and what have you. So far so good though!
These do come with funnels for easy pouring.
Eyelash Growth Serum Recipe:
First, you want to make sure that your face and eyes are clean and free of makeup. You’ll want to do this at bed time so that your lashes get maximum penetration from the eyelash growth serum.
- 1 teaspoon castor oil
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1/2 dropper full of vitamin e blend
Close the mascara tube with the plug and shake it up!
- Use daily for maximum results.
- If any eye irritation should occur, discontinue use. (there really shouldn’t be any issues, but not everyone’s skin is the same)
- You can also use this on thinning eyebrows if you so desire.
- This can be stored for a year without spoilage as long as it’s not contaminated with water and is sealed.
