Lashes! Did you ever notice how baby boys usually have the most amazing eye lashes?! Long, curled and gorgeous, just placed there like they were photoshopped on.

I’ve been seeing all these amazing lash extensions and expensive lash serums that produce such amazing, full lashes, but I’m on a budget over here. A budget that definitely does not have room for lash extensions.

So, I did some investigating and found that I had all the ingredients to make my own lash serum right at my finger tips!

Ahhh , essential oils. My love language. If you don’t already have your starter kit, go grab it here.

I had these babies on my shelf already (Lavender comes in the Premium Starter Kit)

I purchased castor oil and empty mascara tubes off of amazon

The recipe is so simple!


  • 5 drops Young Living Lavender Essential Oil
  • 5 drops Young Living Rosemary Essential Oil
  • 5 drops Young Living Cedarwood Essential Oil
    Fill mascara tube with castor oil
    • Apply to dry, clean lashes 1x a day
      Use caution as to not get serum in eyes
  • I apply it before bed but also if I’m just staying around the house, sometimes I apply it in the morning as well
  • Top photo: Before
  • Bottom photo: one week of 1x daily application
  • Here is my progress photos after just ONE WEEK! I. Am. So. PUMPED!
  • Follow me on Instagram @shorthairsandlongnaps to be updated with my month and two month results!
  • They have gotten noticeably thicker and I cannot wait to see the results a month brings!
  • I’ve received some concerned comments like “HOW DO I KEEP IT OUT OF MY EYES?!?!?!?”

    Guys, when you put mascara on, do you layer a coat of it on your eyeball? No. So just use the same caution with the serum as you would with mascara or any other cosmetic you put around your eye.

    If you would happen to get some in your eye, it’s heavily diluted with castor oil already, but just dilute with more castor oil or another carrier oil if you find it to be bothersome.

    Never try to dilute oil with water. It causes the oil to spread and does not act as proficient dilution.

    Also, I only recommend Young Living Essential Oils. They are 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oil and their seed to seal guarantee is unmatched. You can read more about Seed to Seal here.
