Do you want to pay $76 for an eyelash growth serum? If so, you’re totally in the wrong place — because I’m going to show you how to make your own DIY eyelash growth serum recipe for just about $2 (including the cost of the mascara tube!). Sound like fun? Let’s do this.

Why I Picked These Eyelash Growth Serum Ingredients.

Castor Oil: Literally like food for your lashes. Castor oil is full of nourishing fatty acids like ricinoleic acid that moisturize and protect your lashes.

Think about it — we’re always moisturizing our hair and skin, which can get dried out from the weather, washing with soap, etc. But our poor lashes get left out!

And on top of that, mascara and eye makeup can dry lashes out even more. Dry lashes get tangled and damaged and tend to fall out more easily. The best way to prevent this is to moisturize them!

Lavender and Cedarwood Essential Oils:

Both lavender and cedarwood oils are well known for supporting healthy hair follicles and lash growth. They are also both very calming and soothing oils, perfect for dry or sensitive skin!

Note: Do not get in your eyes!

Essential oils are awesome, but they aren’t meant to go in your eyes. Seriously. So as a precaution, just make sure you don’t get any in your eyes — using a thin layer helps.

This eyelash growth serum recipe is already diluted, but it still may sting a bit if it goes IN the eyes. If that happens — DO NOT WASH WITH WATER.

Get a little more oil (castor, coconut, sweet almond, any vegetable oil will work), and massage it over your eyes to clean it out. Then wipe excess oil away with warm water.

How long until you notice results?

Since it takes time to nourish and restore healthy lashes, you need to use your serum consistently for 1-3 months to see a difference.
