Other Comments:


Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to man. It was a valuable commodity in the spice trade. The Egyptians used cinnamon as perfume, incense and medicine. The Arabs considered cinnamon a symbol of wealth, and it is said that Alexander the Great knew he was near the coast of Arabia when he could smell the spices from the shore wafting past his barge.


Diffusing the essential oil of cinnamon leaf disperses unwanted smells and prevents the spread of infection.

The leaf and the bark of the cinnamon tree each yield essential oils that are chemically different. Cinnamon leaf oil contains a high percentage of the phenol eugenol, also found in clove. This may irritate the liver in repeated doses. It has a milder smell, and can be used in diluted form in topical and perfume applications.


Cinnamon leaf oil makes pleasant aromatic diffuser blends and works well to combat sleepiness. Cinnamon bark oil contains cinnamic aldehyde, which is an excellent infection fighter.


This makes cinnamon bark the oil of choice for severe infections. Cinnamon bark oil is also effective for stimulating menstruation and helping with uterine contractions during childbirth (Price, 79).


However, the bark oil is quite irritating to the skin and should not be used topically.

Both essential oils are excellent antifungals, antivirals and antibacterials. They stimulate digestion and may be used to destroy intestinal parasites.
