Swollen lips may be caused by allergic reactions or trauma to the soft lip/mouth tissue. Here are some natural remedies to help speed up the recovery of your lips so you can have your beautiful smile back.
Place an ice pack or cold compress on the affected area to ease the swelling.
Placing a cool tea bag (after soaking in warm water) on the swollen lip can do wonders in relieving the discomfort and swelling.
This is especially helpful if the lip swells because of an allergic reaction, or because of insect bites. Applying the aloe vera gel directly on the lip greatly eases the discomfort and bruising.
Apply honey directly to the lips and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse with cold water, and repeat a few times throughout the day.
Apply a warm compress alternately with the cold compress to bring down the swelling of the lips. However, do not use a warm compress if the lip has a cut, or if the skin is broken.
