Not too long ago I wrote a post about DIY Dry Shampoo Using Essential Oils. That spurred on my curiosity for what else I could make for myself and save money on by using my essential oils.
My husband was blessed with naturally plump lips, I, unfortunately, was not. Seriously, he could be a lipstick model! haha! So when I found out how to make my own lip plumper I was quite excited! It’s crazy simple and only requires 2 things: lipgloss and Peppermint essential oil. Simply put 2 or 3 drops of Peppermint essential oil into your tube of lipgloss, mix well and apply as usual! It would be smart to start with 2 drop then add another if you feel like you need it. I love the tingly sensation and fresh feeling! I’ve purchased lip plumper in the past, some worked and some didn’t, but I would so much rather use my essential oils than the chemicals in the store-bought stuff!
These would also make fabulous gifts! Instead of lipgloss tubes purchase empty cosmetic containers like THIS. Squeeze your lipgloss into a small bowl, add 2 to 3 drops of Peppermint essential oil and mix well. Then you’ll just separate into the cosmetic containers, wrap with a pretty bow and you have the perfect gift!
If you want to change it up a bit you could use Cinnamon Bark essential oil instead of the Peppermint. That would be a great flavor for fall and winter!
