Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil (Cinnamomum verum) ~ The warm, spicy aroma of cinnamon has been sought throughout the ages both as a valuable commodity and for its ability to improve wellness. Cinnamon oil is now being used in many recipes as a tangy, inventive ingredient. Historically, cinnamon was so popular it was the main reason behind the occupation of Ceylon by first the Portuguese, then the Dutch, and then the British. Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ cinnamon bark is meticulously tested to ensure that no dilution from similar-smelling oils has occurred. Cinnamon is thought to promote healthy cardiovascular and immune function, and acts as an antiseptic. You can also use it to enhance your cooking, or dilute and massage into chakras to create a soothing, relaxing sensation. It is best to dilute cinnamon bark before topical application or direct inhalation. Cinnamon Bark has an approximate ORAC of 103,448 (TE/L).
