Try real Cinnamon toothpicks made of Cinnamon wood.

You must only use Ceylon Cinnamon oil to make the Toothpicks.

The Cinnamon Oil we buy in the US is actually Cassia Oil. Cassia has a chemical called Coumarin which could be toxic.

I used less than half an ounce of artificial cassia oil, in a closed container over night, and the toothpicks are hot enough to burn the lips- in other words - way too hot. Do I need to use less oil, soak for less time, or "cut" the oil with another oil like sunflower, hemp, etc.? Any suggestions?

I put the toothpicks directly in the oil bottle for two hours. They were plenty HOT!
It reminded me when my Mom made them for me as a small boy. Brings back memories!
