Learn How to Make Your Own Natural Lip Plumper

Some women are born with lush, full lips, and some are blessed with thin lips. I have the latter, and sometimes I just want a plumper lip.

There are all kinds of chemicals that can help make your lips appear fuller, and some makeup tricks will give the same illusion, but I wanted to do it naturally.

To get fuller looking lips, you don’t need chemicals. Just whip up some of this DIY lip plumper!

A Natural DIY Lip Plumper

The idea is to irritate your lips slightly so that they fill with fluid and become flushed. The effect doesn’t last long, but is far less toxic than some of the chemicals that produce the same results. Some of the most common irritants are:

  • Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil (do not use if pregnant)
  • Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Cinnamon Powder
  • Cayenne Powder

There are several ways you can make a great DIY lip plumper with these key ingredients, and I’ll share two simple recipes below!

DIY Lip Plumper Recipe #1 (Using Powdered Spices)


  • 1 teaspoon cayenne powder or cinnamon powder
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


Mix all ingredients together and let sit a few minutes. You’ll need to wait for the oil to soak into the powder. Add a bit more oil if you need to make it a more spreadable consistency. Transfer to a small jar with a tight fitting lid.

To Use

Prepare lips by cleaning with a gentle cleanser to remove makeup or lip balm, then use a lip scrub to exfoliate dead skin cells. Using a clean finger, scoop a small amount of lip plumper out and gently rub it onto your lips. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, then wipe off. Your lips will probably sting or tingle, but this is normal. Follow with your regular lipstick or lip balm.

DIY Lip Plumper Recipe #2 (Using Essential Oils)

(WARNING: The essential oils in this recipe are not recommended for use if you are pregnant.)


  • 1 teaspoon beeswax pastilles
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil, melted
  • 5-6 drops peppermint or cinnamon leaf essential oil


Melt the beeswax into the coconut oil. Add the essential oil and mix thoroughly. You can add a few more drops if you like.

To Use

Prepare lips by cleansing and exfoliating. Apply lip plumper to lips (using a clean finger if lip plumper is in a tin). With this blend you can either leave it on, or wipe it off after about 5 minutes. As with the mixture above, your lips may sting or tingle a bit.
