Tips and Tricks: Naturally Plump your Lips with Cinnamon!

To get fuller, luxurious lips use lip products that contain Cinnamon, Ginger, or Cayenne pepper.

Personally, I prefer Cinnamon e.o..  As you probably know all three ingredient listed above are consider hot.  When they come in contact with your lips, your lips tend to heat up increasing the circulation and blood flow to the lips giving your a plumper look with a red tinge. This effect will usually last for a couple of hours so enjoy.

To make your own lip plumping lip gloss, just mix a tiny drop of Cinnamon Leaf Oil into a lip gloss. The gloss or balm will cool the initial sting of the cinnamon, which can manifest itself as a slight “burning” sensation. When experimenting with essential oils, remember a little bit of the oil goes a long way.  Less is better!

Caution: Cinnamon can be irritating to some, so always dilute!
