Cinnamon Essential Oil for the Holiday’s

Cinnamon

Many people associate the aroma of cinnamon with the Holiday’s. You will find many candles, incense, aroma lamps, etc… oozing cinnamon into the atmosphere.

Cinnamon has a very strong, overpowering scent, and is not among my personal favorites, but I wanted to take a look at it for those who enjoy the scent.

Cinnamon Essential Oil, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, is steam distilled from the bark, or leaf, of the cinnamon tree. The oil has a slightly oily feel and is golden yellow, or brown, depending on the part of the tree that was steam distilled. As mentioned above, Cinnamon Essential Oil is a strong aroma. It is an earthy, peppery, spicy, and woodsy scent.

Cinnamon Essential Oil helps increase blood circulation, reduces flatulence, and helps lessen stress, making it a perfect scent for the Holiday’s.

Cinnamon Essential Oil blends well with Cardamom Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Lemon Essential Oil, Geranium Essential Oil, and/or Rosemary Essential Oil. It is best to start with only two to three essential oils, until you come across a blend that feels and smells right for you.

An excellent Essential Oil Blend Recipe to use in Aroma Lamps, Diffusers, or Oil Lamps is as follows:

Add the following essential oils in one ounce of your favorite carrier oil, (I prefer jojoba):

12 drops Cinnamon

16 drops Lavender

17 drops Geranium

Swirl gently to make sure all the oils are well blended, before each use.

Use 3 – 5 drops of the oil blend placed into water in a dish of an Aroma Lamp, Diffuser, or Oil Burner.

*Do not use this blend in a bath or wear as a body perfume as Cinnamon Essential Oil is volatile to the skin*

A good room spray recipe:

Add the following essential oils into an ounce of water in a spray bottle:

12 drops Cinnamon

16 drops Lemon

17 drops Rosemary

Shake well, until thoroughly blended, then spray around a room. Make sure to shake often.

  1. One of my favorites is cinnamon essential oil with tangerine! Regarding use on the body, I never apply cinnamon neat (on its own undiluted), but do make things such as lip balm using a small amount and love the result.
