Eyebrows – you either notice them or you don’t. I never used to pay attention to them, and then in came the mid-2010s and BOOM, it’s all I see!
I wanted to find a natural alternative to store-bought growth serums and came up with this eyebrow conditioning serum recipe. It contains ingredients known to nourish the skin and hair, and promote hair growth. While I can’t scientifically demonstrate the effectiveness of this recipe, I can say that I noticed a marked improvement in the condition and thickness of my eyebrows while using this serum. I believe it also helps ‘tame’ those wayward hairs that want to rebel and grow sideways!

My Choice of Essential Oils
My favourite essential oils in this recipe are rosemary and lavender, but don’t be limited by my suggestions. Use oils that fit your budget, or those that you already have in your collection. Read here for more information on essential oils.
Add all of the ingredients to a small bowl and mix until combined. You might find it easier to add ingredients directly into a glass bottle with dropper top, or glass roller bottle, and shake to combine (add essential oils first to lessen the risk of them overflowing when you secure your lid).
Apply a small amount of serum to brows. Using a clean brow brush, sweep through in the direction of hair growth, and leave on.
