The next time you need a fuller pout, you know what to use. Using cinnamon oil for lips is the best way to get an instant (but temporary) plumping effect. You can use it in your DIY lip balm or lipstick recipes and carry them with you. However, cinnamon oil is extremely potent and may irritate the skin.

However, remember that you may experience a minor tingling sensation when using cinnamon oil. In case of excessive discomfort, stop using the oil and consult a doctor immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the plumping effect permanent?

No! Nothing can permanently alter your lips (unless you are going for a cosmetic procedure). The effect of these cinnamon lip plumpers lasts only a few hours.

Can it be reapplied throughout the day?

Yes, you can reapply it as required.

Can it be left on overnight for best results?

Don’t do this. Leaving it on for an extended period will not work as the plumping effect happens just after you apply it. Leaving it for longer will increase the risk of ingesting the plumper.

Can it be used daily?

Yes, you can use it on a daily basis. However, do a patch test before applying and wait for at least 24 hours before using it.

Does cinnamon oil cause dry lips?

There is no evidence to suggest that cinnamon oil can make your lips dry. On the contrary, being an oil, it may seal the moisture in your lips to prevent them from drying out.

Key Takeaways

  • Cinnamon oil contains cassia that increases blood flow to your lips and gives a plump effect.
  • You can mix cinnamon with shea butter, vaseline, and peppermint for hydrated and plump lips.
