How To Grow Eyelashes Longer Naturally

Fake lashes are quite popular, but I don’t prefer using them, even on special occasions as they don’t look natural. Moreover, I don’t like to put glue onto my skin. Yuck, who knows what types of chemicals are in that and plus it’s especially not good to apply it so close to your eye because the skin around the eye area is highly sensitive.

So, I was looking for natural ways to grow long, thicker lashes without applying the toxic glues required for fake eyelashes (which can sometimes fall off) or chemicals in store bought mascaras!

I researched the various natural ways for growing eyelashes longer and thicker. I tried them on my lashes and I want to share an update with the ones that gave me the best results and also how they worked!

Read on here a combination of best 3 DIY ways to grow thicker, fuller and longer eyelashes fast naturally, which I have found to be the most effective.

1. Castor Oil: It contains beneficial antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which in combination with its powerful follicle-stimulating property can help you get lustrous and voluminous lashes. It also helps to keep in control micro-organisms, which otherwise obstruct hair growth. This oil not only can help you get long lashes, but also is good for growing your hair and for eyebrows too!

How To Apply It:

(i) Make sure to use a natural and hexane-free brand of castor oil.

(ii) Wash your eye area thoroughly to cleanse it of any makeup or products.

(iii) Use a clean brush, a cotton swab or your finger to lightly apply castor oil on your lashes from the roots of the lashes to the ends before going to bed. A drop or two are enough to cover the lashes of each eye. For added benefits, add a drop of vitamin E oil to the castor oil before applying.

(iv) Leave it overnight and then rinse it off well with water the next morning so that your pores and glands don’t get clogged. Be gentle while you clean your eyes – don’t rub them. Use this remedy for about 2-3 months.

Alternatively, you can also apply extra virgin olive oil. This oil is contains vitamin E and oleic acid, both of which can nourish and add volume to your eyelashes.

Another option is organic coconut oil. It contains lauric acid, which can help boost hair health and growth by preventing protein loss.

Natural Beauty Tip: Castor oil is one of the most commonly recommended oils for growing longer, fuller lashes. Always try to use organic, hexane-free brand of castor oil.

2. Homemade Eyelash Growth Serum Recipe: (Coconut Oil And Lavender Essential Oil): I was researching on the advantages of applying orally lavender essential oil and how it helps to augment eyelash growth. I discovered this easy and quick DIY recipe to use on the eyelashes. Lavender essential oil assists to get rid of damaging free radicals and may also contribute considerably to enhance hair growth. Coconut oil is an ideal carrier oil to mix it with. It is soothing, nutrient rich and moreover it has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.

What you need:

(i) Coconut oil: 1/2 teaspoon, organic

(ii) Lavender essential oil: 1-2 drops


(i) Combine the coconut oil and lavender essential together. You can even mix these two together in the palm of your hand. If you want to make more, use the same ratio in larger quantities, and store the mixture in an air-tight container at a cooler place, away from light.

(ii) Gently wash your eye area with your hands thoroughly to cleanse it of any makeup or any other products. Use a clean brush, a cotton swab or your finger to lightly apply it along your eyelash roots down to the ends of your eyelashes.

Note: If you want quicker results, you will need to use an eyelashes growth serum to help fastest growth.

3. Eyelids Massage: Massaging the eyelids increases blood flow to the hair follicles, and so more nutrients reach your follicles. This nurtures your lashes, make them grow as well as prevents thinning and breakage of your lashes. Do it every night.


(i) Before massaging your eyelids, make sure to wash your hands first.

(ii) Use a few drops of coconut oil, petroleum jelly or shea butter and with the help of your fingers gently massage along your lids and lash-line. While massaging sweep your fingers along the length of your eyelids towards your eye – downwards on your upper eyelid, and upward on your lower eyelid.

(iii) Be careful that the oil/petroleum jelly or shea butter doesn’t go into your eyes. Also properly wash your eyes area afterwards so that the oil doesn’t clog the pores.

(iv) Just apply a gentle pressure onto your eyelids while massaging them. The pressure shouldn’t be so hard that it hurts your eyeballs or eyelids in any way.

(v)Massage for a couple of minutes every day for few months to see the results.

Natural Beauty Tips:

(i) Remove your makeup every night. Makeup can dry out your lashes, making them brittle and prone to break or fall out.

(ii) Use a gentle makeup remover for your eyes. Coconut oil is a good option because it will not only get rid of your makeup, but also moisturize your lashes at the same time.


(i) If you suffer from styes or any other eye related issues, consult a dermatologist before you use anything on them.

(ii) Eyes and the skin around them are sensitive, so if you experience any irritation from any of the application you are putting on your lashes, discontinue immediately. If the irritation still continues after you have stopped using the treatment, consult a doctor.

    • @ Remi:

      Some people claim that petroleum jelly helps eyelashes growth, though some people are skeptical about this little beauty trick’s chances. Petroleum jelly’s moisturizing emollients helps moisturizing dry and brittle eyelashes and restoring it to its former glory. This is probably why some people notice a significant change in their eyelashes while using it.

      The main qualm people have against this product is the greasiness that comes with it. Because petroleum jelly is so greasy a lot of people complain about their pores being clogged. Not only do they claim to be getting acne but they also claim to have gotten eye irritations such as sties.

      • Thanks for great post. I had the same problem with my eyelashes. Petroleum jelly did nothing to my eyelashes. I started using Careprost (Bimatoprost) ? earlier this year (2-3 times a week). So happy I found ‘GET24BIMA’ ❤️ in Google and got Careprost a way cheaper. It is a generic form of the same liquid Latisse. Careprost gives great results for eyelash growth. It works well to stop eyelashes from falling out even when you are removing your make up or while washing your face. The results are visible in just 2 weeks. I found it worked great, my lashes are longer and thicker and look really pretty.

    • @ Mano:

      One of the best and natural ways to make your eyelashes look bolder and thicker is coconut oil. You can apply it directly to your lashes. After a couple of months, you’ll notice how fewer eyelashes will fall out, and the ones you have will start to grow thicker. They will also grow longer.

  1. Extra virgin coconut oil and olive oil work perfectly. Natural stuff always creates miracles. But as I was tired from oils and their texture, and got too busy, I started to use Cherish Lash serum. Longer eyelashes and zero side effects as well. Do what is best for you at this period of time
