Cinnamon Essential Oil - Cinnamon Bark and Cinnamon Leaf oils

 

CINNAMON BARK Essential Oil

Cinnamomum zeylanicum Madagascar, Cert. Org. Steam Distilled, Bark

Cinnamon Bark is an oil to be used with extreme caution. Please don't use it in any "on the skin" application. Save its power for the aroma lamp or the diffuser.

Cinnamon Bark oil is an extremely strong antibacterial and antifungal oil, a wonderful addition to air cleansing blends in the winter. When inhaled, it serves as a respiratory and circulatory stimulant and antiseptic. It is useful in inhalation blends for bronchitis, pleurisy, can raise body temperature when you are chilled. Cinnamon Bark is wonderful for the type of flu that leaves you shivering.

Emotionally, Cinnamon is useful for emotional and/or mental fatigue and lack of concentration.  

Cinnamon Bark

5 ml $13.00
15 ml $25.00

ORDER

WARNING: Cinnamon Bark is both a strong sensitizer and an irritant. It really has NO use in skincare products or toiletries, and should not be used in massage blends. If it IS the appropriate oil to use in a therapeutic blend please keep the dilution extremely low (less than 1%.)

**For other possible oils to avoid, please see our essential oil contraindications page.

CINNAMON LEAF Essential Oil

Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Certified Organic, from Madagascar 

Cinnamon Leaf

15 ml $10.00

 ORDER

We have never offered Cinnamon Leaf oil before, because I honestly never experienced a sample that didn't smell muddy and lifeless. This oil, product of a dedicated highly skilled distiller is different. Light, vibrant, full of life, it is a beautiful oil. Far less sensitizing than our Cinnamon Bark oil, but still a skin irritant and possible sensitizer so should be used highly diluted. The aroma is similar to a blend of cinnamon and clove (because of its high Eugenol content). Cinnamon leaf is a powerful broad spectrum anti-infectious oil, also anti fungal. Highly diluted it can be an effective addition to tooth and gum care blends. Diffused it may be helpful in respiratory blends. Emotionally some authorities recommend it for feelings of isolation, loneliness and fear. It is also said to stimulate creativity.

Recent studies have indicated that Cinnamon Leaf and Ginger, in synergy, are an effective analgesic and rubifactant.  The combination of the two are more effective at lower dilutions than either one alone.

WARNING: Please avoid use during pregnancy or with children under five. Cinnamon Leaf may induce menstruation or stimulate childbirth contractions. As mentioned above, it is a strong skin irritant.  Avoid use of Cinnamon Leaf if you are on anti-coagulant therapy (blood thinners.)

**For other possible oils to avoid, please see our essential oil contraindications page. 

 
Analysis of the two oils shows the differences in their chemical makeup. GC/MS analysis of Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil and Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil are offered for your comparison.  As you can see,  the bark oil is high in cinnamaldehyde while the leaf oil is highest in Eugenol.  The two do share some common components.
