5 Great Ways To Use Cinnamon Bark Oil

5 Great Ways To Use Cinnamon Bark Oil
December 21, 2015 No comments

Cinnamon Bark oil is one of the spiciest oils that you can use. It has been used for centuries for healing in many parts of the world to aid in arthritis, cold and flu, and intestinal issues. Many people tend to think that this is a mild oil with a light scent, like sniffing a spice jar of cinnamon. It is anything but mild. The cinnamon used in the extraction process comes from the most pure, “true cinnamon” originating in Sri Lanka. It is an incredibly potent oil so you will want to handle it with caution. You should never sniff the scent straight from the bottle, and it must be diluted before use because it can cause irritations or burns to your skin. Carrier oils, such as coconut oil or almond oil, mix well with the scent. Here are some great uses for the oil as well!

  1. Calming - Cinnamon oil has often been used to help balance people out emotionally. The oil can help to calm anxiety and boost feelings of self confidence when diffused. It brings over a calming sense of relief and warmth when used. The intoxicating spiciness envelopes you making you feel cozy and invigorated.
  2. Improve Circulation - If you are having problems with swelling or bruising, cinnamon oil works wonders when massaged into the affected areas. Cinnamon has blood thinning properties which help to improve circulation and blood flow. When using the oil topically, only mix 1 drop of oil per tablespoon of carrier oil.
  3. Pain Reliever - Cinnamon oil also makes a great natural pain reliever because of its aid in circulation. Joints and that are inflamed or stiff will greatly benefit from a cinnamon massage. It can also help with headache pain when massaged onto the temples, or diffused.
  4. Common Colds - If you are suffering from a nasty cold or flu, cinnamon oil could be your saving grace. When breathed in via a diffuser, it will help to break up any mucus and help to get your blood circulating better which can help speed up the healing process. Cinnamon oil also has antiseptic properties that will help kill those viruses.
  5. Cleaning Solution - Cinnamon oil can also be used to clean with. You can mix a couple drops with tea tree oil solution and pray it on whatever you need to clean. Not only is it antibacterial, but the oil also acts as a deodorizer.

This oil is a favorite, especially during the fall and winter. It has such a variety of uses and is a smell that most people will love. It puts you back on your feet in no time if you’re feeling down or funky. Colds and flu’s are the worst, and this is one of the few things that will make me feel better. Please remember to use the oil properly since it is so potent in its undiluted form.
