What you Need to know about Cinnamon Essential Oil

The most common type of Cinnamon sold in North America is cinnamomum aromaticum, which is grown in southeastern Asia. Cinnamon has been used for medicinal purposes in Chinese, Indian and Persian cultures, as it contains both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Today it is used as a potent essential oil and is a favorite in many aromatherapy blends.

Cinnamon essential oil is believed to promote improved circulation, reduce stress levels, and when applied topically, aid in pain relief and ease muscle tension. It is important to note that cinnamon essential oil is very concentrated and can cause skin irritation and burns if applied without a carrier oil. If you are using cinnamon essential oil topically, be sure you are diluting it with a safe, organic carrier oil such as olive oil, jojoba oil or coconut oil. Recommended ratios are 4 teaspoons of carrier oil per one drop of cinnamon essential oil. Discontinue use immediately if irritation or burns occur. Do not use on children under the age of 12 or on pets.

Cinnamon essential oil can provide a warm, inviting scent to your diffuser blends and is a great way to freshen your home without using toxic air freshening products or chemical laden candles.

When choosing a cinnamon essential oil product, be sure you are choosing one that is organic and does not contain fillers or other non organic ingredients. Mary Tylor Naturals is proud to offer a USDA certified, premium cinnamon essential oil product.
