DIY lash & brow serum

Swiitch&Co. Admin

 

 

these are the ingredients you will need :

castor oil: is full of nourishing fatty acids like ricinoleic acid that moisturize and protect your lashes. our hair and skin are always getting washed, moisturized and treated because they get dried out by the weather, products we use, and everything around us - however our lashes never get the same attention. on top of not giving your lashes the necessary attention, we are always putting mascara on and use eye makeup removers that cause tension on the lashes. and if your lashes are dry, just like your hair, it can get brittle & begin to break. the best way to prevent this is to keep them soft and moisturized.

 

 

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

 

 

 

how to make it:

you will need any form of an empty tub or tube - cleaned properly of course will do, as long as disposable spoolie can go in and out of it. snd then of course disposable spoolies - these can be found at just about anywhere, dischem has a ton for super cheap (you'll be throwing them away anyway). you can use an old, small and preferably soft makeup brush too to get closer to the roots - the spoolie may be too bulky for that.

 

 

step number 1 :

first clean out whichever empty container you are going to make your formula in. make sure it is also dry 100% before you mix your oils/serum in there - as any left over water will interfere with the formula.

step number 2 :

3/4 of your tub or tube has to be filled up with caster oil. then add 2 drops of lavender essential oil and 2 drops of cedarwood oil.

step number 3 :

make sure your tub/tube is closed nice and tight before you give it a good shake to mix all the oils together.

step number 4 :

apply a thin layer nightly before bed to give your lashes and eye brows some good old love. this recipe is shelf stable for a decent period of time.

6 months to be safe

 

 

note: don't get in your eyes!

essential oils are great, with a lot of amazing properties, but they aren’t meant to go in your eyes. so as a precaution, just make sure you don’t get any in your eyes — using a thin layer helps.

 

 

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.
