With a scent that is spicy, warm, and sweet, cinnamon bark oil is a middle-note that has an odor intensity of a full five out of five. Blending companions include citrus and woods. Its stimulating, warming, digestive, and antispasmodic properties make it useful for many physical ailments. Emotionally, cinnamon oil helps by energizing, increasing feelings of abundance and prosperity, and it is even thought to stimulate psychic awareness. This native of the Near and Far East produces essential oil from the leaves (mild) and inner bark (sweet and hot). Cassia oil (C. cassia) is similar in fragrance.

Cinnamon has been a popular flavoring for thousands of years, but has only recently attracted the attention of serious medical researchers. And what these researchers are finding is exciting, especially for diabetics. But, except for those with thrush, there is little hard evidence that there are any benefits to be derived form using cinnamon-containing products. On the other hand, the risk of use appears to be minimal, and there would certainly be no reason not to experiment with cinnamon-containing products. If unexplained mouth pain is experienced, it probably is a consequence of irritation produced by the cinnamon.
