CINNAMON BARK ESSENTIAL OIL
PART(S) USED FOR PRODUCTION
Cinnemonaldehyde, Eugenol, Benzaldehyde, Cuminaldehyde, Pineen, Cineol.
A peppery, earthy, spicy, bright yet slightly woodsy aroma
Our oil is a steamdistilation of the Cinnamon Bark from India. The bark has a bright Cinnamon aroma. Cinnamon bark is distilled from the new shoots of the inner bark of the tree.
While many aldehydes are cooling, Cinnamaldehyde is hot and stimulating. Used mostly for diffuser blends as the Cinnamaldehyde makes it virtually impossible to use on the skin. (Very high skin sensitiser). Only use 2-3 drops in a blend.
It is no wonder this essential oil brings warmth and energy to the present moment, especially when feeling withdrawn and separated. Dennis Willmont states in Aromatherapy with Chinese Medicine, “Cinnamon bark is one of the strongest natural antibacterial agents known…. It is the classic assistant oil in that it boosts the actions of other more directional oils.” Blends well with citrus oils such as lemon and orange.

Many cultures rely Cinnamon Bark for its internal use where its antispasmodic and anti-infectious effects are remarkable. In the tropical areas it is also used internally for intestinal parasites. We definitely don’t recommend to use this oil internal.
Make an uplifting blend for you mood and add 1-2 cinnamon with 2 drops lemon and 3 drops orange in your aroma diffusor and feel the warm, uplifting atmosphere.
To be used carefully on the skin as it can cause burning and blistering along with skin sensitization and contact dermatitis. When using in a skin blend, only use 1 drop per 40 ml. This is a little less than 1 drop per ounce. Not to be used during pregnancy or while nursing or with children under five.
Use care when diffusing as some people’s eyes can be sensitive to the Cinnamaldehyde and Eugenol.
The suggested shelf life is 4-5 years.
