About Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

When applied topically in extremely low dilution, cinnamon oil warms the body, nourishes and supports healthy muscle and joint function, and promotes healthy inflammatory response. This stimulating oil can also be used for increasing the appetite. Traditionally used in ground or powdered form as a spice in cooking, cinnamon is a digestive tonic, aiding nausea, diarrhea and flatulence. The spice has been revered for thousands of years for its ability to enhance blood circulation and to regulate metabolic activity. Cinnamon oil also enhances romantic moods and can be diffused for this purpose (always diluted with other essential oils). Diffusion of cinnamon enhances circulation in the brain, promoting calm and relaxation and supporting cognitive function.

How to Use Cinnamon Bark Oil

Note: Please see safety guidelines for cinnamon oil before use.

Cinnamon oil should not be applied directly to the skin as it is extremely dermo-caustic. It may be applied to the palms for direct inhalation, or used in a diffuser.

One drop of cinnamon in 0.5 oz carrier oil can be massaged into legs, arms and joints to warm and relax the body.

Diffuse a combination of cinnamon (one drop), and 6 drops mandarin oil to encourage relaxation and lift spirits.
