I often come up with DIY’s as I need them. Lately my brows have looked just plain bushy and weird. I think it has something to do with my makeup. Have you ever applied your foundation and then noticed you got a bit too much in your brows? Then you try to fix it with brow powder or pencil but something still doesn’t look right? Well, that’s been me every time I wear make up. I usually can fix it with a clear mascara but let’s face it, finding a non-toxic mascara is not easy! My make up routine is not 100% clean so I don’t need 1 more product that contains toxic chemicals!
Turns out, like most DIY’s on my blog, this turned out to be a very easy recipe. It worked like a charm and now one more make up product has been made without having to purchase something full of chemicals! Oh, and did I mention, by adding a few drops of Rosemary Essential Oil, you are revving up circulation which helps thicken and accelerate hair growth? I also add a couple of drops of Lavender to help nourish the brows as well. Gelatin stinks so the essential oils really help to cover up the smell.
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp. gelatin
- In a small bowl, thoroughly mix gelatin and warm water. The warm water helps to dissolve the gelatin.
- Using a small funnel, transfer your mixture to a mascara tube. Allow a bit of room at the top for your essential oils.
- Add your essential oils.
- Let set for 3-12 hours to thicken.
