Cinnamon leaf oil is created when the leaves of the Cinnamomum zeylanicum plant are distilled by steam, until nothing is left but the essential oil. Some people find putting cinnamon leaf oil on their lips beneficial.
Cinnamon leaf oil is not necessarily intended for application to the lips, however when applied carefully it can result in plumper or fuller-looking lips.
Lips become plumper due to irritation of the mucous membrane and an increase in blood flow to the lips. Users commonly report a tingling feeling.
Experiment with low doses or diluted cinnamon leaf oil to prevent damage or burning the lips. Lipaugmentation.com suggests applying a sample to an inconspicuous area to test for possible reactions.
Experiment with adding a few drips of cinnamon leaf oil into lip gloss or other lip moisturising treatments.
