Hey. Let me share with you my DIY eyelash growth serum I’ve been using for so long now. I always suffered with short, fragile eyelashes that tended to fall off very often. I have tried bunch of eyelashes serums from different brand but what turned out to be best fit for me was this DIY eyelash growth serum considered of 3 simple ingredients you can get at any pharmacy, drugstore or online.

What you’ll need:

For serum:

  • castor oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Aloe vera plant

Utensils:

  • flask
  • knife
  • needle

How to DIY eyelash growth serum:

Prepare your flask. You can use old mascara bottle after you clean it up or get small bottle with a brush – I got mine at pharmacy where I work at.
Fill 1/3 of your bottle with castor oil of your choice – I don’t really have a preference it’s – all the same oil just the brand differs. You can get some on iHerb – one of my favourite website with very fast shipping.
You can get vitamin E capsules on iHerb as well. You have to choose gelatine capsules and you’re not gonna swallow those pills. You need to take a needle and pinch a hole into the capsule and let the vitamin E oil drip out of the gelatine capsule into your bottle with castor oil. You need to use like 10-20 pills depending of the size of your flask.
Last ingredient you’ll need is fresh aloe vera leaf. There are plenty of tutorials online on how to extract aloe gel out of the plant. It’s quite simple and sooo satisfying. You would need just one leaf and scrap the gel right into the flask. Some recipes online recommend you even blend the gel but doing so would only create too liquify consistency  and you want it to be gelly like for easier application.

Shake the bottle with all of the substances and make sure you shake it before each application. I store mine in fridge so it would last fresh for longer time.
Apply thin layer to your eyelash roots or even whole length of your lashes at least once a day – ideally at night-time. Whole serum is oily and gelly like so you might have sticky feeling having it on your eyes but unless you’re allergic to one of the ingredients or have sensitive eyes you really don’t have to worry. It’s odorless serum – maybe subtle smell of castor oil depending of the brand you used.
My eyelashes are thicker, longer and much stronger. Applying mascara to healthy eyelashes adds whole new dimension to my eyes. Mascara holds better and even the removal become much easier.
Totally recommending. It’s easy and it works.
Thank you for your attention

    This seems like a great recipe! I use castor oil only, and it’s true that mascara holds better and is more easily removed afterwards

    I used to put Vaseline on my eyelashes! (Bad idea!) this seems so cool! Great post, would mean a lot if you checked my recent one out too! X

    Thank you for the tips. I spend a lot of time outdoors, and I am always looking for better ways to take care of my skin after being out in the sun all day. Great stuff.

    Petroleum jelly (vaseline) also works well.

    How long does it take for you to start noticing a difference in your lashes?

    Hi, can I use this on my eyebrow? I need to have blacker eyebrow so that I won’t have to draw it frequently and just plugged it to shape it. Do you have tips for that? Thanks.

        Wow. Good news. I’ll try it later, I love natural remedies. Have you ever use LuckyVitamin(dot)com to make purchase? It’s a similar site to iHerb but shipping seems more than iHerb. Can you do a review on their service(if you have not)? Thanks.
