Name - Cinnamomum Cassia Leaf Oil
Origin - Sri Lanka
Did You Know? CINNAMON OIL is an aromatherapy libido booster for many men (and women) and a super systemic hemostat (as is cayenne.) Cinnamon is probably the most benign of the popular self-medicating herbs. A drop of cinnamon oil in the hair or under the pillow can enhance a romantic encounter. Its use in food complements the usual extremely hyperglycemic foods which trigger a strong insulin response immediately after being eaten.
Cinnamon Essential Oil is a product of a dedicated highly skilled distiller. Light, vibrant, full of life, it is a beautiful oil. Far less sensitizing than Cinnamon Bark oil, but still a skin irritant 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.
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.)
Cinnamon is a better potpourri scent than a soap scent. The strong nature of cinnamon can be an irritant to the skin, so place your potpourri everywhere and scent your soap with something else. Cinnamon can also accelerate the trace of soap, in case you wondered. When blending with cinnamon we recommend clove, litsea cubeba and orange.
When used in lip balms this flavor is fun but it should also be used lightly! When getting this much bang for your buck you have to appreciate the flavors and essential oils that are a bit stronger than the average. I don't know about you, but I think getting more scent out of less oil use means a real cost savings!

Using Essential Oils Safely:
Do not apply undiluted essential oils directly to your skin, because they are so very concentrated.
Essential oils are absorbed through the skin, so using too much can result in an overdose. Make sure you store essential oils out of the reach of children. Do not get essential oils in your eyes, nose, or ears. Wash your hands thoroughly after using essential oils. If working with pure essential oils, you may want to get disposable latex gloves. Do not take essential oils internally. Even small amounts can be toxic. Do a patch test if you have allergies or think you might be sensitive to an essential oil. Overuse of essential oils can trigger a headache or dizziness. Don't exceed recommended amounts. If you have a medical condition, consult a qualified practitioner before using essential oils.
