Long, full lashes are every woman’s dream - at least it has always been mine! I was born with short stubby lashes that even with mascara can barely be seen. I have been searching for something that would boost their growth naturally, because many come with a hefty price tag, questionable or downright toxic ingredients, and a ton of side effects that I have seen first-hand with friends. It can be a bit scary to venture into that world and I am not about to do it! I do have good news- you can easily create your own eyelash serum with ingredients that are readily available!
Castor oil is a key ingredient in eyelash growth and conditioning, and it’s the foundation of our recipe. It contains ricinoleic acid, which promotes hair growth, and nourishes and strengthens lashes. Combine this with Aloe Vera gel, which contains gentle moisturizing properties, and Vitamin E oil, rich in antioxidants, and you’ll have a winning serum on your hands.
Next in line are essential oils to enhance the serum. Lavender oil contains properties that moisturize the lashes, while Cedarwood enhances blood circulation, effectively promoting hair growth. Rosemary oil is the finishing touch, boosting circulation and anchoring your lashes firmly.
Eyelash Serum Recipe:
1 teaspoon castor oil
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
1 teaspoon vitamin E
2 drops lavender
2 drops cedarwood
1 drop rosemary
To create the serum, start by mixing all the ingredients in a jar and stirring until they combine well. Store it in the fridge for a couple of hours to form a thicker consistency before applying it using a clean mascara wand. You can use it daily, before bedtime, and observe noticeable differences in your lash growth and thickness in no time.
But you’re probably wondering, why this particular recipe? Firstly, castor oil, aloe vera gel, and Vitamin E oil can do wonders to the stubborn/thin lashes by deeply nourishing them and enhancing their growth capacity. Essential oils add to this power and also provide an uplifting aroma that can also help you de-stress and relax before bed. This serum is easy to apply, quick to make, and extremely cost-effective compared to store-bought alternatives. The possibility of negative side effects is also very low.
This recipe is just one of the many ways you can create a nourishing, growth-boosting eyelash serum using natural ingredients. In a world where we are becoming increasingly conscious of what we put on our bodies, it's essential to use safe and healthy alternatives that combine the benefits of nature with nurturing our own beauty routine. So, go ahead and experiment with various combinations of natural ingredients, and soon you'll have the perfect serum that provides you with luscious lashes and happy feelings.
