Eyelashes can sometimes take a bit of a battering from constant mascara use but this easy serum gives you DIY Beautiful Lush Lashes in not time at all.
The success of this simple recipe lies in the quality of the ingredients that you use, so it’s really worth sourcing organic cold pressed caster oil, pure aloe vera gel and 100% lavender essential oil.

Castor oil has extraordinary powers of renewal so it wonderful for skin, nails and hair growth, it’s anti bacterial too so it fights off any infection and keeps everything in tip top condition. The essential lavender oil is famously soothing and calming but also has great anti-bacterial and healing powers.
The benefits of aloe vera are well known for treatment of sunburn, and it’s these soothing and healing properties that are so useful for keeping a fresh, even complexion. It also has the multi tasking abilities of both moisturising and toning at the same time, delivering a potent dose of antioxidants with a natural source of vitamins C, E, betacarotene, minerals and amino acids.
The quantities for mixing the serum are simple: Half castor oil to aloe vera and then add 6 – 12 drops of lavender depending on the size of the bottle you use.

Be sure to use it every night before you go to bed and happily it’s a an effective anti-wrinkle eye treatment too, so not only will your lashes be lush and beautiful but it will also keep the wrinkles at bay!
