CINNAMON ESSENTIAL OIL
Cinnamon is one of the oldest medicines in the world. In many ancient civilizations, used in healing techniques, cosmetics, religious ceremonies, culinary recipes, and love poisons.
A cinnamon tree has different aspects and grows in different geographies such as China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Madagascar, Seychelles and Dominica.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations report, 75 percent of the cinnamon production is made in China and India in 2016.
Cinnamon essential oil is distilled from either leaves or twigs of the tree.
In aromatherapy, cinnamon essential oil is mainly used for joint and muscle pains associated with sprain, strain or rheumatoid arthritis because it relaxes and recovers the muscles and heals the infections.
It boosts your immune system and cleanses your body from toxicities. That also makes cinnamon essential oil amazing for colds and coughs.
To use cinnamon essential oil in aromatherapy, you can use only a few drops in your vaporizer or diffuser. Or you can drop the oil in cotton or handkerchief and smell it from there.
To use it in your bath or on the skin, you need to mix it with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. The cinnamon essential oil shouldn’t be used directly to the skin, as it might cause skin irritations.
Note: If you’re pregnant or on medicine, you should talk with a practitioner before starting aromatherapy.
