: It is actually easy to make. I used organic cotton balls and
: them with a few drops of rose eo and a few others but just a few
: drops of any edible oil will work(cooking oil). The oil makes it
: smoke more. When you burn it have something over the flame to get
: black with the soot. The soot is what you use as kohl.
: Most recipes I found for kohl called for the use of wick which may
: explain the lead. There can be a problem with lead in wicks. They
: also use things like mustard oil.
: At least making it myself I know what is in it.
: I would NOT use eye shadow in my eyes like kohl. While they are
: free most of them contain a variety of preservatives that kill
: bacteria. It could cause problems with your eyes if you put it on
: inside.
