Cinnamon Essential Oil (Bark) relieves nervous tension, helps fight colds and can stimulate circulation. It's warm, spicy scent is reminiscent of the holidays. It smells beautiful in a diffuser blended with orange, or mandarin.
At Pink Apothecary we like to use Cinnamon Essential Oil in our All-Purpose Cleaner Recipe because of its amazing antiseptic qualities. Cinnamon Essential Oil can be very irritating to the skin so be sure to blend properly before applying topically.

"This essential oil is like a warm wrap that softens nasty side effects of a cold – shivering and painful joints. Added to a liniment or bath oil, cinnamon could help warm older people who tend to chill easily during cold winter months or others who are physically weak or recuperating from illness. Similar effects may be noted for psychological symptoms, like emotional coldness, isolation, tension, and fear. The essential oil arouses physical senses and creativity.
Cinnamon strengthens the heart and nervous system. The oil has strong antiseptic and astringent properties. Cinnamon may also be used for diarrhea, flatulence and stomach or intestinal cramps. Sitz baths or massages may aid women with weak or painful menstruations. Applied externally cinnamon helps warm and stimulate the circulatory system and may be used to relax tense muscles.” - Complete Aromatherapy Handbook, Fischer-Rizzi.
Cinnamon Essential Oil is not suitable for pregnant women, babies, or young children. Skin irritant because of its high eugenol content. Can inhibit blood clotting and be harmful to the liver.
*** As a company, we have chosen not to sell essential oil singles. We believe a properly formulated synergy amplifies the sum of all its parts. While each essential oil is fantastic on its own, it's as a team they become mighty; we like the science of blending. Because of this, I am often asked which retail essential oil company I trust for singles. Ancient Apothecary is a brand I trust: Cinnamon.
