Eyelashes play a big role in your daily get up. I have found that a good mascara and some lip balm can do wonders and change up your whole look from frumpy and tired to a bright eyed natural look.
I have always had fairly long lashes. However, regular use of mascara leaves many lash casualties at the end of me removing my make up and going through my cleansing routine. When I first got started with Young Living one of the first things that I started implementing into my beauty routine was adding lavender to my bottle of mascara. It helps with eyelash nourishment and growth.
Later, I saw an instagram friend (Sweetjamieleejoy) post about her oil infused eyelash serum. This girl has the most beautiful long natural lashes. My interest was immediately piqued. I asked her what the ingredients were and shortly after placed an order for the supplies that I needed (aside from the oils). Once I received my materials I got to work on creating ratios that worked for me. Trial and error of course. Initially the first batch that I created had way too many drops of essential oils because the scent was too strong for my eyes. Second time was a charm!
Supplies + Ingredients:
*Disclaimer: I only recommend the use of the most pure and natural therapeutic essential oils (Young Living). I am not responsible for any damage created by or caused by use of adulterated essential oils. Oil purity is extremely important as FDA onlyrequires 5-10% of the actual oil in order for an oil to be labeled 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oil. When in fact the rest could be fillers, solvents, chemicals, or otherwise.
Sanitize the mascara tubes and other parts prior to use.
Add two drops of each essential oil to the mascara tube
Fill about ¾ of the tube with castor oil
Add rubber insert and seal with wand/lid
Apply nightly before bed
If at any point you get an essential oil in your eye, DO NOT FLUSH WITH WATER.
Water drives the oils, and will in turn intensify the discomfort.
Grab a carrier oil (jojoba oil, castor oil, olive oil, or coconut oil, etc.) and gently put some in your eye. Rest your eyes until discomfort is over.
I would love to see your before and afters!
