Natural Homemade Mascara

What you’ll need:

2 tsp coconut oil
4 tsp aloe vera gel
1/2  – 1 tsp bees wax pellet
1 – 2 capsules of activated charcoal (for black) or cocoa powder (for brown)
a clean mascara container

* Due to temperature differences you may want to add more beeswax to give more “hold” to your mascara. Keep in mind that coconut oil is a liquid above 75 degrees. I’d increase the beeswax to 3/4 or even 1 tsp if it’s really warm where you live… or if you want more of a “waterproof” mascara.

**Activated charcoal might not be good to use close to your eyes. If you’re worried, go with the cocoa powder to be safe.

Directions:

1. Put coconut oil, aloe vera gel, and grated bees wax in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until beeswax is completely melted.

2. Open 1 – 2 capsules of activated charcoal (depending on desired color, about 1/4 – 1/2 tsp) and pour into oil mixture. Stir until completely incorporated. Remove from heat.

3. Pour into a small plastic bag, pushing the mixture down to one corner. Then cut a very small hole in the opposite corner of the bag.
