One of the most interesting areas is the philtrum or groove between the nose and upper lip, this area was originally called ‘fertility and creativity’. It also corresponds to the reproductive area of the body and shows how well it functions.
It was believed that if you have a strong groove, you have the ability and energy to have and raise a large number of children. Any extraneous markings on the groove indicates a problem with fertility. A small philtrum indicates fewer potential children and decreased fertility… We were taught how to improve that area.
