The best way to lengthen lashes then is to use this lash growth serum recipe that is 100% natural and safe.

Especially those who suffer from hair loss, this eyelash growth serum DIY recipe is perfect. It can take some time to see growth, but it's well worth the wait! This serum is great at promoting both lash and brow growth, but made in bigger batches, can also be used on the hair on your head.

  • 1/2 tbsp sweet almond oil
  • 1/2 tsp argan oil
  • 1/2 tsp vitamin E oil

If I don’t have sweet almond oil, can I substitute for coconut oil or vegetable oil?

Awesome serum!!! I made a big batch, and I use on my lashes, eyebrows, and hair! I put it on my brows and lashes every night before bed, and I massage into hair a few times a week.
