  1. I did this and it really didn’t pick up much cinnomn flavor. I used almost the whole bottle of cinnamon bark. Not sure it is worth using the $20 bottle of cinnomn for it.

  2. Um… should I be concerned about this recipe since the label on the bottle of doTERRA’s FCO clearly states, “For Topical Use Only?”

  3. I grew up on cinnamon toothpicks and I’m not a big fan of cinnamon anymore because of all the ones I chewed when I was younger. But, I would love to try this with other flavors.

  4. Smart idea using an empty peppermint beadlet bottle. The only problem that I found with that is I had to cut the tip off the toothpicks to make them fit. Maybe some toothpicks are smaller? However, an empty 15 ml. e.o. bottle with the orifice removed fit my toothpicks perfectly. With either option, you probably wouldn’t have to use as much coconut oil if any at all because the bottle is smaller. Maybe that would help with a stronger flavored toothpick. Can’t wait to try.

  5. Using the FCO dilutes the strength of the cinnamon. So if you want a stronger flavor, use less or no FCO and just the cinnamon. Great recipe idea. Thanks for posting it!
