DIY Lip Plumper

diy lip plumperIngredients:
5 ml lip gloss container
Shea Butter
Cinnamon Leaf EO
4 Drops Vitamin E



Place the shea butter into your container until it is almost full, leaving just enough room for the other ingredients. Add 4 drops of vitamin E and stir to incorporate. Add the cinnamon leaf essential oil [Tip: make sure it is cinnamon leaf essential oil, and not cinnamon bark essential oil. Cinnamon bark is highly irritating and can be toxic.] one drop at a time and mix thoroughly. Test on your lips after each drop to see just how much is comfortable for you.

Warning: Do not use this lip plumper, or anything else with cinnamon leaf essential oil if you are pregnant. Do not use on broken skin. Make sure you test on a small area of skin prior to use to make sure you don’t react badly to any of the ingredients.
