About Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

Known and loved as a spice and herbal medicine for centuries, cinnamon has nourished and warmed many hearts, bodies and minds. It is one of the most recognizable essences even among those who are unfamiliar with aromatherapy. It will bring warmth to a cool day and has many wonderful uses in your home apothecary.

Pungent, spicy and warming, cinnamon nourishes and restores the body's own ability to produce a healing response. Applied topically in extremely low dilution, cinnamon oil assists in restoring ease and comfort to tired, fatigued or overworked muscles and joints. The fragrance of this stimulating oil will awaken the senses and stimulate the appetite. Traditionally, used as a spice in cooking, in ground or powdered form, cinnamon is used as a warming stimulant tonic to increase metabolic activity.

Cinnamon can be used to create a sensual atmosphere, so include this exotic spice to blend in your diffuser with ginger, cedar and vetiver. Diffusion of cinnamon can energize a sluggish mind and can be useful to stimulate creativity.
