The Neanderthal, I mean husband, that lives at my house is always in search of a good toothpick. Don't you love it when you are in a restaurant and they have cinnamon or mint toothpicks? The best! Today I decided to make a batch of cinnamon. I think my caveman will like them!
Super easy! First gather up your supplies ~
1 small glass jar
1 box of wooden toothpicks
1 bottle of certified pure Cinnamon essential oil
1 bottle of fractionated coconut oil (or any carrier oil you want to use; olive, grapeseed, etc.)
Cover the bottom of the jar with your carrier oil. Don't put to much, just enough to cover it.
Now add that delicious, yummy Cinnamon Bark oil. 15 to 20 drops will do it.
( Make sure you are using a good, 100% pure, unadulterated, therapeutic grade oil. These are toothpicks. They will be in your mouth so you want to make sure you know what's in the oil you are using.)
Toss those toothpicks in! Well, be gentle. You want them standing up and not just all willy-nilly in there.
Put the lid on.
Leave it on for about 8 hours.
After the loooong 8 hours have passed, pour them out onto something flat.
They should be in one layer on the plate. I know. Do what I say, not what I do. You want them to dry.
It might take up to 24 hours. I know. So stinking hard to wait.
When the sand has finally made it's way to the bottom, your toothpicks are finally ready. Yay!
Stick 'em in a tin, maybe a recycled Altoids tin, and enjoy!
Seriously, is it okay to eat wood? Sorry Caveman. These are mine!
