Homemade Lip Plumper with Essential Oils

Last Updated on December 29, 2017 by Ellen Christian

I own several lip glosses that plump your lips while providing gloss and color. Both cost close to $30 a tube which to me is a bit much. Don’t get me wrong, I love lip gloss but for $30 I can buy a pair of shoes instead. When I can, I really prefer to make my own beauty products as long as they work as well as what I can buy at the store.

Homemade Lip Plumper

If you’ve seen those stars who have unbelievably full, pouty lips, chances are they’ve have Botox or some sort of lip augmentation. They’re at least using lip plumpers regularly for their photo shoots.  Beware which lip plumpers you use, some of them use chemicals to get the irritation that causes plumping. This homemade lip plumper does not.


  • Beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil or olive oil
  • Peppermint or cinnamon essential oil
  • Small jar if using a liquid or tin if using a solid


  • Pour the oil into the jar or tin.
  • Add 2-3 drops of peppermint or cinnamon essential oil.
  • Apply to lips using a cotton swab.

Apply as needed throughout the day. This isn’t permanent but the essential oil will stimulate blood flow to your lips which will give them a plumped look. Discontinue if irritation occurs.

  1. I will share the lip plumper with my wife. We have been trying to incorporate more of our home made products with essential oils.

  2. I must be the only girl who could care less if she has plump lips or not, lol! I don’t have thin lips so guess that’s the reason. I do love shea butter and have several tubes of beeswax from Walgreen’s since they were a great buy. I put any color or gloss over that and skip the tingle of the peppermint or cinnamon. I love those two in a tea though!
