100% pure essential oil from Sri Lanka. Cinnamon Bark is an exceptionally potent antibacterial and should be used with care. The Sri Lankan CO2 oil is the finest Cinnamon we've ever come across, perfect in every way, and is considered the best Cinnamon essential oil on the planet. Wonderful! This Cinnamon Essential Oil is available from sample size up to 1kg or more.

ABOUT THE PLANT

The Cinnamon tree is native to many countries with tropical climates such as Southern India, Burma, and Madagascar, but the Ceylon Cinnamon tree originated in Sri Lanka. Each country has a different species of Cinnamon each with differing aromatic compounds. These trees are evergreen and typically grow up to 15 meters in height with strong, thick branches. The Sri Lankan varietal produces 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.

ABOUT THE OIL

This Cinnamon oil is a medium yellow hue and is distilled using CO2 from the inner bark of organically cultivated Sri Lankan Cinnamon trees.

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.
