Cinnamon Leaf organic Essential Oil
This Soil Association Certified Organic Cinnamon Leaf is a real winner we find.
Organic oil producers put their heart and soul into their oils and this tends to be reflected in the overall quality and this version truly reflects that. A top notch Indian Cinnamon leaf oil, with a greater scent depth and a fragrance edge over our therapeutic range (amber glass), though both are stunning.
There is little to choose between them but this organic edge it. Cinnamon Leaf Oils are from the leaf and have a warm, musky, spicy aroma, reminiscent of clove. Contrast with the expensive bark oil which smells like the cooking spice. Bark oil is highly irritant where as our leaf Indian example is the non-toxic variety but can still irritate the skin so use with caution.
This beautiful burnt orange oil has a Middle to Base note and is said to be a great digestive and stimulant. Said to be anti-spasmodic and help with digestive problems including hiccups, colic, stomach ache and cramps, flatulence, nausea and diarrhea. Also said to ease menstrual cramps. It has a warming effect on emotions and has traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac. This warming also makes it good as a minor ingredient in massage oils for poor circulation, aching muscles and joints, arthritis, rheumatism and to ease the chills and discomfort that come with colds and flu.

KEY BENEFITS & CAUTIONS
1 - Cinnamon oil is an anti-spasmodic and can help with many digestive problems including hiccups, colic, stomach ache and cramps, colitis, flatulence, nausea and diarrhoea.
2 - The oil can also be successfully used to ease menstrual cramps, especially when combined with clary sage.
3 - The oil has a warming effect on the skin and the emotions. This quality has meant it has traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac. Whilst a small proportion of this oil in combination with others can increase sensation in the skin, it should never be used on the genital area where it can cause a burning sensation.
4 - This warming effect also makes it good as a minor ingredient for massage for poor circulation, aching muscles and joints, arthritis, rheumatism and to ease the chills and discomfort that come with colds and flu.
5 – The oil can also be used very successfully when vaporised. Again it has a warming and comforting effect, making it especially good for use in winter. For a traditional winter fragrance, try combining with Orange and Ginger. It also blends well with Benzoin, Cedarwood, Cypress and other citrus oils.
