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.
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.
