Cinnamon Essential Oil

What is the Genus Species? Cinnamomum verum

Why is this Information Important? With so many species of cinnamon, as well as hybrids, and different parts of the plant being marketed, it is no wonder that people are so confused.

To add more misinterpretation, many of the species do not have the health benefits of cinnamon that are reported. So, please be careful and know this information when purchasing and using essential oils.

What Part of the Plant is Used? Bark (for the purposes of this website)

What is the Bark versus the Leaf Debate all About?

There is debate over the essential oil from the bark versus the leaves and which one you should use, or which one is better. So, all I can do to answer this question is to present the facts. Then it is up to you to evaluate and choose for yourself!

What are the Facts?

The health benefits of cinnamon have been widely studied as presented in the beginning of this page. Those studies document the difference between using the oil of the bark versus the leaves.

And the good news is they both have supporting benefits. Some websites will tell you that there are no benefits of cinnamon leaf.

However, while there are some similarities, there are also some differences that can be attributed to their chemistry. (I know…here she goes with the chemistry thing again!)

What is the Chemistry of the Bark versus the Leaf?

Cinnamon bark contains approximately 41-51% aldehydes. It contains cinamaldehyde or cinnamic aldehyde (an aromatic aldehyde) which gives the flavoring that people love in mints, gums, etc.

Aldehydes are known to be calming. Cinnamonaldehyde. In high amounts and when used every day incorrectly, it can be toxic to the body and is a skin irritant as with the leaf oil. However, it is also interesting to note that Cassia Oil contains twice the amount of the same compound!

Cinnamon leaf contains approximately 80% phenols. It contains 68-87% eugenol. Eugenol is the primary ingredient in clove (75-85%). It also must be used sparingly because it is a skin irritant and can be very irritating to the mucous membranes.

Which Do I Choose?

I choose chemistry over controversy. I choose what I know over what I don’t know. I know to choose quality over quantity, price or plant part! But as you can see, there clearly are benefits of cinnamon which ever part you choose!

I hope that helps and remember the information contained on this page is built on the BARK, not the leaf!

What is the Origin of the Plant Name? Cinnamon is believed to come from the Hebrew word kinamon, or the Phoenician word “kinnámmon”. Sounds like we really still don’t know, because the spice and the word are so old they can’t say for sure!

Why is this Information so Important? Its not, it’s just a fun fact!

What is the ORAC Value? 10,340 µTE/100g

Most Interesting Historical Reference?

Did you know that Cinnamon is recorded in Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest Egyptian texts on record? Ebers Papyrus dates to about 1550 BC and contains over 700 remedies including embalming.

What are the Plant Properties? Purifier and warming it supports healthy wealth mindsets and attracts loving support.

What are the Documented Uses and Health Benefits of Cinnamon? Supporting healthy lifestyle.

What is the Aromatic Affect on the Mind? Its hot and spicy aroma attracts wealth!

What is Nan's Mental (Mindset), Emotional and Spiritual Interpretation of this Oil?

The health benefits of cinnamon also have a spiritual side of things.

Cinnamon is said to attract wealth by transforming our core beliefs of limitation into abundance. It will release buried anger and frustration that  deal with our dependence and addictions.

It is good for those of us who really want to look at and change their belief systems or their old patterns. This will help those who need to release memories of negative situations whether it is this life or a past life.

What Chakra is Affected? Solar plexus chakra.

What is the Corresponding Chakra Color? Orange

How Do I Use It?

Use diluted - 20:80 dilution (one part essential oil: four part of vegetable oil). Then,

  • Apply several drops (2-4) on location
  • Apply to chakras
  • Diffuse

Then check out Cinnamon Vitality Essential Oil!

Can this Oil be Used for Animals? Yes, but honestly it is such a hot oil that I use it in professionally made blends, such as Magnify Your Purpose, Abundance or Thieves Essential Oils.

If you would like to use cinnamon than a very high level of dilution is recommended for pets.

Note About Animal Use: Certain oils can be very toxic to cats. Pine and citrus products and oils in particular that are not of therapeutic quality! Please consult your vet if you are not sure about applying any essential oil to your pet.

I only recommend using Young Living Oils on animals at this time.

What are the Safety Precautions? First, only use therapeutic grade essential oils for best results!

Because it is approved as a Food Additive (FA) by the FDA, food grade cinnamon oil is readily available on the market. Please remember, these are not the same oils and are often adulterated (changed).

One of the health benefits of cinnamon oil is that is generally regarded as safe (GRAS); however repeated use may result in extreme contact sensitization. Diffuse with caution may irritate nasal passages.

Although it may be used as a dietary supplement, it is advised not to use it in this manner for children under 6 years of age. Women who are pregnant should avoid using this oil.

If pregnant or under a doctor's care, consult your physician.
