Making DIY eyelash serum

1. Prepare your container

If you choose to use a clean dropper bottle to hold your serum, ensure it is thoroughly cleaned and dried.

If, instead, you are using an old mascara tube as your container, clean it thoroughly along with the brush to prevent contamination.

2. Make the eyelash serum

First, add a half-tablespoon of castor oil to your container. 

Follow with one teaspoon of vitamin E oil. 

Add a half-tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil. Fractionated coconut oil is made by separating the different fats found in regular coconut oil. 

Then drop in three drops each of lavender, rosemary, and cedarwood essential oils.

Mixing DIY eyelash serum

3. Mix your serum

Close the container securely and shake it gently to combine all the serum ingredients thoroughly.

Applying DIY eyelash serum

4. Apply your eyelash serum

For best results, you should use this serum nightly. 

Take care not to get the serum in your eyes, as the essential oils can cause irritation. If you have sensitive eyes, you can omit the essential oils. 

Apply a small amount of the serum onto your lashes using the clean brush or dropper.
