Cinnamon Oil Cinnamon bark oil is very strong and should not be used on the skin. It has powerful antifungal and antibacterial properties and can be used as a diffuser in aroma lamps to cleanse the air. Inhaling this oil also offers antiseptic benefits and can help clear symptoms of bronchitis, flu and pleurisy. It is useful to improve our moods especially when we feel mentally and emotionally fatigued.
Benefits of Cinnamon Oil
The cinnamon plant is used in a few different ways to produce medicinally beneficial products. For example, you’re probably familiar with common cinnamon spice that’s sold in nearly every grocery store in the U.S. Cinnamon oil is a bit different because it’s a much more potent “extract” form of the plant that contains special compounds not found in the dried spice.
There are two primary types of cinnamon oils available on the market: cinnamon bark oil and cinnamon leaf oil. While they have some similarities, they’re different products with somewhat separate uses. Cinnamon bark oil is extracted from the outer bark of the cinnamon tree. It’s considered very potent and has a strong, “perfume-like” smell, almost like taking an intense whiff of ground cinnamon. Cinnamon bark oil is usually more expensive than cinnamon leaf oil.
Cinnamon leaf oil has a “musky and spicy” smell and tends to have a lighter color. While cinnamon leaf oil might appear yellow and murky, cinnamon bark oil has a deeper red-brown color that most people usually associate with cinnamon spice. Both are beneficial, but cinnamon bark oil may be more potent.
