DIY Lip Plumper Ingredients

Add the following essential oils to a 5 ml roller.  I am obsessed with these super cute rollers that I recently found on Amazon!


  1. Add the essential oils to your roller. 
  2. Then, top the roller with carrier oil. I prefer to use MCT oil* for this recipe since it will potentially be ingested if you happen to lick your lips.  I love this one because there are no chemicals or fillers used, and it is packaged in the USA. *

*Organic Fractionated Coconut Oil will work in a pinch although it's not really recommended to consume it, so don't lick your lips! 

To use the lip plumper, just roll it on your lips like lip gloss.  It will even give your lips some shine like lip gloss.

Extra Benefit: This Lip Plumper smells fantastic and you'll get the aromatic benefits of all four oils, since they are just below your nose

Cinnamon essential oil is considered a 'hot' oil' (meaning it is very warm when applied topically to skin).  

Hot Lips!

Your lips are sensitive so be sure to use a bit of caution with the number of drops of Cinnamon essential oil you add to your lip plumper.

Be sure to only use 10 or less drops of Cinnamon.  Start with less drops if you tend to have more sensitive skin.  Add up to 10 drops If you your skin can handle it.

Feeling All Tingly

Your lips will feel a bit tingly when you put this on.  

If you find it's a bit too tingly, then just rub a bit more MCT oil or coconut oil over your lips to dilute the oil even more. Do not use water as this will cause the oil to penetrate faster and deeper into your lips.

The Cinnamon and Peppermint essentials oils make this DIY Lip Plumper Taste amazing!!  But you're going to need to refrain from licking your lips for a few minutes after application so that it has time to take effect and work effectively.

Choose your essential oils carefully - most are not what they seem.
never buy doterra essential oils on amazon because of tampering
Why doTERRA and not something from Amazon or Walmart?

Did you know that most essential oils at drugstores are synthetic fragrance only?  And did you know that most oils on Amazon, even doTERRA, are adulterated (tampered with and diluted with coconut oil), and can't be trusted? 

I choose to use doTERRA essential oils.  They are the purest, highest quality and only brand I trust to use for my family.  Find out Why I LOVE doTERRA here.  It's not only just for their fabulous essential oils. It's for their sustainability and the way they work hand in hand with the farmers and communities who grow the plants.

 The cheapest way to get doTERRA is with a starter kit which start at only $55.  Check out the details here or fill in your information in this quick form and I'll email them to you.

Holistic Living Mom with years of experience with essential oils. I have a doTERRA Essential Oil Specialist certification, and Aromatherapy with distinction diploma. Essential Oils enabled my son to live life again to his fullest after struggling to do basic activities like go to school and play soccer. Because his life was so drastically improved, a passion was ignited in me to learn as much as possible about essential oils, including how they are sourced, tested, and ultimately how they work in the body. I love to make my own all natural beauty products and rarely purchase cleaners or otc products from the store. doTERRA is the first essential oil brand I was ever introduced to and it has worked so well for us that I am now a loyal follower and educator.
