How to Make Your Own Cinnamon Toothpicks

Cinnamon can be used in various different ways. Cultures from various eras used cinnamon for many health purposes, as a spice and for flavoring. Cinnamon toothpicks are most commonly used by people that want to quit smoking. However, people on a diet can use them too. Or you can freshen your breath, or simply remove food from your teeth. Here is how you can make your own:

First of all, take a mason jar and fill it with two ounces of cinnamon bark oil. Use enough oil that it covers the bottom of the jar. Also, make sure that you can properly seal the jar afterwards. Another sidenote: the glass should be made of glass and not plastic, otherwise it will affect the soak. You can find cinnamon oil in drugstores.

Secondly, take all of the toothpicks that you want to use and put them in the jar. You should do as many as you can. Over 100 pieces should be an optimal amount. If you worry about making a mess, place a towel around your work area. This makes it easier to clean up later.

After placing the toothpicks inside the jar, seal it with the lid. Make sure that it is an airtight cover. The lid will help keep the oil fresh and help the toothpicks absorb the oil. The next step is to prepare a non-absorbing are to dry your toothpicks. The area should not be exposed to direct sunlight. Lay out some towels or rags for the toothpicks to rest upon. Avoid napking, toilet paper or anything that can absorb the oil.

Remove your cinnamon toothpicks from the jar and place them onto the prepared worksurface. Lay them out flat and spread them out. Re-seal the jar afterwards, to preserve the oil. You can still use it later. After a few hours, check the dryness of your toothpicks. If they are dry, prepare to store them away.
