How to make your own natural lip plumper

Updated on March 5, 2013

Lip plumpers

Having big beautiful full lips has been a popular sensation for a long time. Not every one is born with lips like this. People try all kinds of products and procedures to obtain this look. These procedures and products can be dangerous. Luckily there are some all natural ingredients that you can use to make your very own all natural safe lip plumper. These natural ingredients irritate the lips slightly so that they swell up a little and look more full. Using these recipes are just as effective as the store bought plumpers but are way less expensive. When making your own plumper you control the potency so that you can choose how much your lips can handle. This prevents burning sensations that can be painful.

Essential oils that will make your lips plump up

Essential oils can be used for all kinds of things. They can even be used to plump up your lips. A list of essential oils that will make your lips fuller is listed bellow.

  • Peppermint
  • Spearmint
  • Cayenne pepper
  • cinnamon
  • Wintergreen
  • Menthol
  • Ginger

Only use one or two drops per 2 ounces you don't want to burn your lips.

Choosing the carrier oil

Alright so you have picked out your essential oil and now you are ready for the next step. Now you need to pick your carrier oil or other liquid you choose to water down the solution. A few different kinds you could try are listed bellow.

  • Jojoba oil
  • Olive oil
  • Water
  • Coconut oil

You can use what ever carrier oil you would like but I get the best results with olive and jojoba oil. Water is the least expensive but doesn't seal in moisture the same.

What you will need

You will not need much this recipe is pretty simple and the best part is it barely costs anything.

  • One small 2 ounce container
  • The essential oil
  • The carrier oil

What to do next

  • Take your carrier oil and fill the container almost to the brim
  • Add one or two drops of the essential oil
  • Seal and shake well
  • Now that you have mixed it give it a try to see whether or not it needs to be watered down

When you test your lip plumper you will feel a slight tingly feeling. Tingling is good this means it is working properly. If your lips feel like they are burning the solution is to strong and needs to be watered down some with the carrier oil. Make sure that you don't have any allergies to the oils you choose before making the lip plumper.

I would love to hear what you think leave a comment

      That actually sounds like a really cool idea two tasks in one. I would just make sure that its not to strong so you don't burn your lips. I would love to hear how this works for you.

      Hmmm...what if I tried a cinnamon scrub instead of a cinnamon essential oil? I always use a lip scrub so if I could substitute cinnamon instead of sugar for a nice boost, that would be great!

      Good hub and good information, voted up!

      I'm not a huge cosmetics girl, but this sounds pretty interesting. Those lip plumper products are very expensive and I'd never spend the money on them, but I might try this. Nice hub, voted up.
