How to Use Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
- In the Diffuser: Cinnamon quickly warms the heart and mind with the qualities of stimulating, delicious spice. Like other spices, this oil will help to open the breath and relieve heaviness and lung discomfort. Diffuse a combination of cinnamon (one drop), and 6 drops mandarin oil to encourage relaxation and lift spirits.
- Safety note. Cinnamon oil should not be applied directly to the skin as it is extremely dermo-caustic. It can be applied in dilution or blends to the palm for direct inhalation or massage, or used in a diffuser.
