DIY All Natural Eyelash Growth Serum

DIY All Natural Eyelash Growth Serum

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 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!


  1. Use daily for maximum results.
  2. If any eye irritation should occur, discontinue use. (there really shouldn’t be any issues, but not everyone’s skin is the same)
  3. You can also use this on thinning eyebrows if you so desire.
  4. This can be stored for a year without spoilage as long as it’s not contaminated with water and is sealed.

  1. I need to try this stuff! My lashes are not what they used to be. They’re not much of anything at all, frankly. LOL

    I will have to try this! I have the shortest eye lashes, and it has always bothered me.

    This sounds like such a great way to promote eyelash growth. I wonder if it would also work on eyebrows…that is my problem area!

    That’s neat that you can make your own. This would be nice to have on hand. Love that it’s all natural too.

    There are so many things you can use coconut oil for these days. Well, it has always been around, it’s just much more popular than it once was. That’s a good thing.

  13. / 10:26 PM

    Coconut oil is amazing. I use it on my skin frequently, even in homemade sugar scrub. I always knew Vitamin E was good for the skin, my grandpa swore by it. I will have to try this serum on my eyelashes.

  14. / 8:18 AM

    This is what my eyelashes need because they are so thin. I’m excited to try this and see the results!

  15. / 11:29 PM

    I’ve never tried a DIY natural lash serum before. Sounds like an interesting recipe.

    Great Article! Studies show that coconut oil is safe for use around the eyes. Along with being safe to use in this delicate area, coconut oil can work double duty and provide benefits not just for your eyelashes, but also the skin around your eyes. I really like the long lashes.
