Top 5 essential oils to grow your eyebrows naturally

Thin eyebrows are this decade’s number one beauty blunder. When Cara Delevingne stepped on the Burberry runway in 2011, her thick, full eyebrows took the world by storm—and their influence is still going strong today.

Women coming from the 90s’ thin eyebrow craze, however, may have a hard time keeping up. To have kept up with Drew Barrymore’s signature stick-thin brows required an inordinate amount of overplucking one’s eyebrows.

And, as we’ve emphasized before, overplucking has dire consequences.

Namely: they might not grow back.

Luckily, there are tons of options available for regrowing your eyebrows—you can get store-bought serums, get your brows microbladed, or you can go all-natural and use these essential oils to help your eyebrows get #thick.

DIY eyebrow re-growth serum

top 5 essential oils to grow your eyebrows naturally

The important thing to know about making your own serums from essential oils is that you need a carrier oil. Essential oils are highly concentrated oils and may end up doing more harm than good if you use them directly.

This serum uses castor oil and argan oil as carrier oils. Carrier oils penetrate the skin more easily than essential oils. They also dilute the essential oils without taking away any benefits.

Here’s what you need for you eyebrow re-growth serum:

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp castor oil
  • ½ tsp of argan oil
  • 1 capsule of vitamin E oil
  • 2 drops of essential oil of choice
  • Small clear mascara tubes

Directions

  1. Using a funnel, carefully add the castor oil and the argan oil into your clean mascara tube.
  2. Snip off one end of your vitamin E oil capsule and squeeze the oil into the tube. Use the funnel so you’re sure it all goes in!
  3. Add 2 drops of your chosen essential oil using a dropper.
  4. Firmly screw the lid and give your mascara tube a good shake.

Usage

Use 1 to 2 times per day for 3 months.
