Is there any natural remedies for a mucocele on rim of lower lip? Evening primrose? Salt solution?

In brief: Not really

Usually they will not respond to otc or home remedies.
A minor office procedure will easily remove it. That is your best solution.

In brief: Mucocele elimination

I am not aware of any, & these would only perhaps aid in a reduction of inflammation.
The pathology behind a mucocele dictates that almost 100% of the time it will repeatedly present itself & require excision. If anyone has a successful, evidenced-based natural remedy i would be interested to know about -as the founder of the nation's first fully sustainable & eco-friendly oral surgery facility.

In brief: Mucocele

Simply put alum on the mucocele and let it set for around 10-15 minutes.
Follow up with listerine for 2-5 minutes. Repeat this every day until the mucocele has resolved.
