Healing With Cinnamon

G'morning all....We are going to get back on track this morning with "Healing with Cinnamon". It was a nice break yesterday with the carrier creams and I *hope* it was a beneficial post to ya'll.

Have a great day and don't forget to stop and *sniff*  the aromatherapy!

~Peace~





Healing With Cinnamon




A familiar food flavoring, Cinnamon is one of the oldest known spices. The essential oil has a peppery, dry and spicy aroma - an excellent warming restorative oil for anyone feeling tired, cold and weak.

It stimulates the mind and body and is effective in treating stress.

Cinnamon is an effective abdominal massage oil, useful for relieving digestive spasms, constipation and diarrhea. It also stimulates the circulation, especially to the extremities.

A wonderful reviving room fragrance, it promotes a general sense of vitality and enthusiasm for life. The strong antiseptic properties of Cinnamon make it a valuable room fumigant, protecting against infections and other illnesses.


Active Ingredients Of Cinnamon Oil

***DO NOT USE DURING PREGNANCY***

***Cinnamon can be irritating to the skin, so it is best to test it on a small area before use***


Phenols~Up to 90 percent of Cinnamon Oil is made up of Eugenol. Eugenol gives Cinnamon its potent antiseptic, antibacterial activity. It is also responsible for its immune-boosting properties and uplifting, reviving effects.


Proanthocyanidins~This specialized group of bioflavonoids has powerful antioxidant effects and is also a great aid for stimulating blood circulation to the extremities, especially in cold weather or in warming baths.
