Cinnamon Essential Oil
Plant and Oil Description
Few spices are as emblematic of warmth and good tidings as cinnamon. Harvested from the inner bark and leaves of Cinnamomum trees, the fragrance and flavor have captivated mankind since it was imported to ancient civilizations as gifts for royalty and the Greek god Apollo. It was so highly prized for its uniquely powerful aroma that its source was kept secret for centuries by merchants in the spice trade.
What’s it Good For?
Not only does it offer warm and toasty aromatherapy goodness on chilly days, SenseLAB’s Cinnamon Essential Oil has a wealth of beneficial homeopathic uses.
- Stress reduction – The sweet and spicy aroma of cinnamon makes every day feel like a holiday. The addition of our cinnamon oil to a diffuser, massage oil, or bath helps to create a tranquil environment to aid in stress reduction and increases the effectiveness of therapeutic relaxation techniques.
- Pain relief – The natural warming sensation it produces makes cinnamon an excellent choice for calming sore muscles and stimulating circulation during massages.
- Insect repellent – SenseLab’s cinnamon oil can be used as a natural insect repellent. It has been shown to be particularly effective at warding off mosquitos and therefore offers increased protection against the diseases they transmit, such as malaria, dengue, West Nile virus, yellow fever, and more.
How to Use It?
Cinnamon oil is best used in low concentrations (1-2 drops) due to its natural strength. It can be added to an aromatherapy diffuser or vaporizer, or mixed with a carrier oil to be added to baths or directly to the skin. Great choices for carrier oils to use with cinnamon include hemp seed oil and jojoba oil.
How it’s made?
It takes approximately 3 pounds of cinnamon bark to produce 10 ml of pure SenseLAB Cinnamon Essential Oil
