Cinnamon Bark oil comes from a tree that grows up to 50 feet high but is usually cultivated as a large shrub. The oil can be extracted from both the leaves and bark, with the bark containing far more of the compounds that produce the classic cinnamon fragrance. Valued for both its medicinal and cooking uses, Cinnamon has been used and prized for centuries.*
While Cinnamon Bark takes you right to the holidays, this oil can be used all year long! Here are some of our favorite ways to use it! (Some might be for the holidays, but who can resist?!)
Mouthwash - Cinnamon makes a great mouthwash! Be sure to dilute it heavily since Cinnamon is a “hot” oil. We recommend 1 drop for every 10oz of water!
Cinnamon Bakes - Cinnamon Bark Oil is a great way to add the flavor of cinnamon to your cooking, cakes, waffles, or french toast are best friends with this oil!
Immune Booster - A main chemical in Cinnamon is called “cinnamaldehyde” which may help to support a healthy immune system
Spicy Cleaner - Cinnamon is another oil that is great for cleaning! Its powerful anti-bacterial properties make it perfect for keeping surfaces clean all year long!
Cold Much? - Mix a drop of Cinnamon with 4 drops of coconut oil and rub on those cold feet! Cinnamon can help promote circulation, which is a part of why you may feel cold!
