Nothing speaks louder of the holidays and winter than the bold notes of cinnamon drifting through the house. Cinnamon is a staple spice in almost every household, and its warm spicy aroma is full of depth and comfort. But who has time to bake cinnamon rolls daily (and who needs the extra pounds!)?
Instead you can use the delightfully warm aroma of Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil, either by itself or combined with your favorite essential oils.
Distilled from shiny green cinnamon leaves, Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil has the benefits of Cinnamon without the potential toxicities that you can encounter when other parts of the tree are used.
Cinnamon is used throughout Egyptian history for foot massages and embalming, and throughout the Asian continent to support digestion and immunity. It blends well with Clove, Frankincense, Ginger, Lavender, Rosemary, and Thyme.
Topical: Mixed with a carrier oil, Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil can be rubbed on the abdomen to support digestion. As a massage oil, it can be rubbed on achy joints and muscles to help soothe and relax. Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil should always be diluted to a concentration of 0.5% essential oil (1 drop of Cinnamon to 2 teaspoons of carrier oil).
Diffuser: Cinnamon Essential Oil can be diffused by itself or in blends to help support digestive and respiratory systems, bring soothing and relaxation to a room, and help cleanse the air during times of illness.
Cleaning: For an antimicrobial boost, add a few drops of Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil to your homemade natural cleaning recipes or your mop bucket!
