Cinnamon Bark

No, you don't gnaw on it, though I can understand the temptation. eZoetic recommends you dilute a drop in a liquid, such as goat's milk, or apply to your skin and have it absorb that way. Think how "Christmassy" you'll smell. Historically, cinnamon was so popular it was the main reason behind the occupation of Ceylon by first the Portuguese, then the Dutch, and then the British. Who remembers that from 4th grade history?

Why essential oils?:

Young Living's therapeutic-grade essential oils deliver positive benefits to the body through smell, direct absorption into the skin, and by normal digestive processes. Antiseptic, calming, stimulating, soothing, Young Living's essential oils bring balance to all systems of the body.

I just like the idea of smelling like a cinnamon cookie during the holiday season.

$26.97 at eZoetic.

Note: Deb from eZoetic writes to say: "eZoetic notes "Always dilute before applying to the skin. It's also an oil that can be used in a diffuser, or mixed into plain, unscented
massage oil for a wonderful uplifting aroma."

morfydd:

Um, I don't know if they use a special formulation, but cinnamon oil can burn the skin, expecially if you're sensitized to it.

I'd recommend diluted patch tests, and/or applying it to clothing instead of skin.

Laura:

eZoetic.com is very cool -- lots of organic products, for home or personal use. Also they give a percentage of every sale to one of three charities devoted to wellness and health issues. I've bought a couple things from them before.

Deb:

Hi -- eZoetic notes "Always dilute before applying to the skin." It's also an oil that can be used in a diffuser, or mixed into plain, unscented massage oil for a wonderful uplifting aroma. Enjoy!
