Wholesale Certified Organic Cinnamon Essential Oil

100% pure Cinnamon Bark essential oil from Indonesia is a potent antibacterial and should be used with care. The certified-Certified Organic Indonesian 'burmanii' variety is exceptional and the lower demand on the world market for the cinnamon bark itself results in a lower price for this fantastic oil. Our Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is available from sample size up to 1kg or more.

ABOUT THE OIL

The Cinnamon tree is native to many countries with tropical climates such as Southern India, Burma, Madagascar, and Indonesia, where this variety is sourced from. Each country has a slightly different species, each with differing aromatic compounds. These trees are evergreen and typically grow up to 15 meters in height with strong, thick branches producing thin, smooth bark with a light-yellowish brown color. It is this bark that is harvested for essential oil production and then allowed to re-grow. This Cinnamon oil is a medium yellow hue and is distilled using CO2 from the inner bark of Certified Organically cultivated Cinnamon trees. Cinnamon burmanii  produces the same essential oil as the higher priced Sri Lankan varieties, but with a much lower cost. This is solely due to the lower cost of the raw material, though we find that the oil is at least as fine, if not better, than the Sri Lankan variety.

Aromatherapy Notes

This Cinnamon essential oil has a deep orange-like top note, followed by a sweet and warmly spiced middle note and a dry, powerful savory undertone. Cinnamon oil typically blends well with all citrus oils (particularly lemon and orange), Frankincense, Geranium, Lavender, Rosemary and Cardamom.

Traditional Uses

Cinnamon has been employed for centuries to provide rapid relief of bladder and urinary tract infections, digestive tract issues, as well as enzymatic deficiency in the gut. It was also used as a powerful anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-infectious, anti-viral, and antifungal. The oldest known uses include treating toothaches and fighting bad breath. Regular ingestion is believed to stave off the common cold and help digestion.

Regarding Cancer: Pharmacological experiments suggest that the cinnamon-derived dietary factor cinnamic aldehyde (cinnamaldehyde) activates the Nrf2-dependent antioxidant response in human epithelial colon cells and may therefore represent an experimental chemopreventive dietary factor targeting colorectal carcinogenesis. The USDA-FDA published an article that mentions the anti-cancerous actions of Cinnamon.

Regarding anti-oxidant properties: The antioxidant capacity of Cinnamon is second only to Clove oil. The CO2 distilled oil has a more complex chemistry than the steam distilled and should be an even more broad-spectrum antioxidant. Oxidative stress is involved in many diseases, such as atherosclerosis, Parkinson's disease, heart failure, myocardial infarction, Alzheimer's disease and chronic fatigue syndrome, but short-term oxidative stress may also be important in prevention of aging by induction of a process called mitohormesis.Reactive oxygen compounds (such as those found in Cinnamon essential oil) can be beneficial, as they are used by the immune system as a way to attack and kill pathogens.
