Organic Cinnamon Essential Oil
Cinnamon has a sweet, spicy, warm and woody scent. It is our most common culinary sweet spice but as an essential oil it is a potent antiseptic, antispasmodic and circulatory tonic. Cinnamon contains high levels of the constituent eugenol which gives it a similar anaesthetic effect to clove, however it is known to cause severe skin irritation and therefore is not recommended for topical application. Cinnamon is best used for an inhalation of in a room diffuser, that way you get the anti-bacterial, anti-viral and immune supportive qualities dispersed into the atmosphere.
Essential oils are suitable for use in oil burners, diffusers or vaporisers. Simply add a few drops of your chosen essential oil in water or suitable carrier recommended for your diffuser. To create a therapeutic massage oil or nourishing body oil dilute your essential oil in a carrier oil as recommended below.
ESSENTIAL OIL SAFETY
Do not apply essential oils to your skin undiluted. Some essential oils, when diluted are suitable for use in skincare formulations. Please contact us for more information if you are using essential oils on your skin for safe dilution ratios. Use Cinnamon essential oil with caution - generally 0.5% of essential oil diluted in a carrier oil such as jojoba oil or sweet almond oil and patch test before use. Some essential oils can cause irritation even in dilution and are not suitable in skincare. We do not recommend ingesting essential oils. Essential oils are very potent plant extractions and can cause irritation and damage to your mucous membranes as well as other health risks such as poisoning. Ask our Herbalists about safe plant extracts for internal use. Store essential oils away from children at all times. Seek advice before using essential oils for children.
