|Article number:||Cinnamon EO 5mL|
This is an exceptional certified organic (NOP) cinnamon bark oil. It has powerful antiviral and antibacterial action. External use not recommended due to potential skin reaction.
Cinnamon Bark has an extremely powerful, very warm, diffusive, spicy-sweet aroma with a persistent dryness and warm, lasting powdery note in the drydown. Cinnamomum zeylanicum is indigenous to wet tropical regions of Sri Lanka, India and Southeast Asia. The scented, bushy evergreen has an aromatic bark that is removed from the young shoots, then cleaned and dried into golden brown aromatic quills.
Cinnamon is a well-known spice used extensively in food preparation, traditional and herbal medicine, and natural perfumery. The essential oil is beautiful in a diffuser, particularly for immune support around the holiday season. However, please note that Cinnamon Bark oil is a known skin irritant and must be treated with respect and care. Please be sure to see Blending Suggestions and Safety Considerations below.
The sweetness of Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) adds warmth and a spicy appeal to perfume compositions when used in trace amounts and is often used in Oriental and chypre perfumes to add a spicy, warm and sweet touch. It can add warmth to dry woody and spicy Orientals, and also adds a gourmand note to sweet, ambery Orientals as it has the culinary association of freshly baked goods (cinnamon buns, apple pie, etc.). It can also be used sparingly in florals as well as in fougère and aromatic herbal perfume formulas. We strongly emphasize that because perfumes are topically applied, potential skin irritancy needs to be kept in mind when Cinnamon Bark is incorporated into perfume compositions.
