Did you know you don’t have to be genetically blessed to get gorgeous lashes?? Sure you can pay for a doctor’s visit, get a prescription and pay over $100 bucks for Latisse-which has scary side effect by the way, but why when you can make it yourself and get results naturally??
This DIY eyelash serum contains nourishing and easy to find ingredients that will “feed” your hair follicles naturally! Not only is the serum EASY to make, it also WORKS! Honestly can you really have lashes that are too long or too thick. NO!
OK, this is a fun post! There are actually several recipes floating around the internet for DIY eyelash lengthening and thickening serum. I’ve researched all the suggested ingredients, done some tweaking and used the serum on myself. The results were surprising and I couldn’t be more satisfied!
DIY Eyelash Serum Ingredients:
Castor Oil is the main ingredient in this serum. Castor oil for eyelashes can be extremely beneficial when it comes to growing hair. Castor oil is full of Omega 6 fatty acids, vitamin E and proteins. It is easily absorbed into the hair shaft and locks in nutrients. Using Castor Oil for hair growth dates all the way back to the ancient Egyptians! You can even massage castor oil into your scalp before bed for more hair growth on your head! Castor oil also has a pulling action which I believe the pulling detoxes the hair follicle allowing hair to grow.
Sweet Almond Oil is nourishing and conditioning to the hair.
Vitamin E is moisturizing and also helps to strengthen the hair. Both Vitamin E and Aloe helps to lengthen the lashes but adding aloe to this recipe doesn’t work well since aloe vera is water based and does not mix well with oil.
From the research I have done, it seems like the more you nourish your lashes and brows, the more they grow and thicken. Many different oils have worked for different people but Castor oil always stands out in these recipes.

How to Use a DIY Eyelash Serum
- Use your serum at night right before bed.
- Apply a small amount to the eyelash from base to tip. Be sure you get the oil at the base. This is important.
- Wash your face as usual in the morning.
This serum’s result vary from person to person. Some people see results immediately. I read of one woman’s testimonial that she had to stop using the serum because her bottom lashes got too long! REALLY!!??
I have been using this eyelash growth serum for a couple weeks and can see a difference.
Remember that a little goes a long way-you don’t want the oil running down your face all night so get a minimal amount on your mascara wand before you apply. You can still see without too much blurriness after you’ve applied, it’s actually very comfortable.
You have nothing to lose with making this DIY eyelash serum. Castor oil for hair growth is an incredibly effective, yet natural method for thickening hair.
