Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Cinnamon has a long history of culinary uses, adding spice to desserts, entrées, and hot drinks.
Cinnamon is derived from a tropical, evergreen tree that grows up to 45 feet high and has highly fragrant bark, leaves, and flowers. Extracted from bark, ingested Cinnamon oil supports healthy metabolic function and helps maintain a healthy immune system when needed most.† Cinnamon is frequently used in mouth rinses and chewing gums. Due to its high content of cinnamaldehyde, Cinnamon should be diluted with a carrier oil when applied to the skin and only one to two drops are needed for internal benefits.†
Aromatic use: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in four fluid ounces of liquid.
Topical use: Dilute one drop essential oil to 10 drops carrier oil. See additional precautions below.
