Cinnamon bark essential oil has a warm and comforting aroma that evokes memories of the holidays. But this essential oil offers so much more than just a pleasant aroma.

What It’s For

Cinnamon bark is a great oil to balance chakras and encourage the fire element for more energy and passion in your life. It is also powerful as an aid to releasing trapped emotions from past traumas.  A few drops of cinnamon bark in your diffuser will uplift the atmosphere and support emotional well-being.

Because of its warming properties, cinnamon bark can soothe sore muscles and ease tension, as well as warm the body.

Constituent Highlight

Cinnamon bark contains up to 55% transcinnamaldehyde. This constituent is responsible for the spicy aroma as well as some of the therapeutic actions. Aldehydes are very calming to the nervous system and can encourage stress relief and relaxation.

Who Should Use Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

Cinnamon blends so well with many other essential oils, so it is a great choice for the diffuser. Many people enjoy adding a few drops of cinnamon bark to lotion or massage oil for a warming treatment.

Because cinnamon bark is a hot, spicy essential oil, there are some cautions for its use. This video will give you some ideas about dilution and ways to incorporate it into your daily routine.

Companion Products

There are so many wonderful blends to create using cinnamon bark. Get started by combining it with a citrus oil, like orange, and clove. Amp up your Thieves AromaBright Toothpaste with a drop of cinnamon bark for increased cleansing power and a spicy flavor.

Don’t Have Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil?

Cassia essential oil is just like cinnamon bark, only stronger. Clove is another good option to try.
