Cinnamon has a calming effect on the nervous system when used as an inhalant, yet can also feel invigorating to the senses. It is also useful for digestive complaints such as indigestion and diarrhea. When added to a liniment, it will add heat to the formula. It is good for use against infections, including bacterial bladder infections. It should be used sparingly, as the heat from its spicy nature can irritate the skin.
This is an exceptional certified organic (NOP) cinnamon bark oil. It has powerful antiviral and antibacterial action.

Appearance: yellow to brownish liquid
Uses in Aromatherapy: Powerful antiviral and antibacterial and has been used effectively to treat various infections.
Uses in Natural Perfumery: The sweetness of Cinnamon Bark adds warmth and a spicy appeal to blends when used in minute amounts. Cinnamon is often used in Oriental and chypre perfumes to add a spicy, warm and sweet touch. It can add warmth to dry woody and spicy orientals, and also adds a gourmand touch to sweet, ambery Orientals as it has the culinary association of freshly baked goods (cinnamon buns, apple pie, etc.). It can also be used sparingly in florals as well as in fougère and aromatic herbal blends.
