Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

Cinnamon Bark

(Cinnamomum zeylanicum)

topical aromatic

Cinnamon Bark essential oil is used aromatically and topically  while Cinnamon Bark Vitality essential oil is a dietary oil and therefore can be ingested.

Cinnamon Bark oil (not to be confused with cinnamon leaf oil) has a hot and spicy fragrance that is said to unlock feelings of abundance. Many use it aromatically for its warm, inviting tones.  Due to its high content of cinnamaldehyde, cinnamon bark oil is considered a “hot” oil and should be diluted when applied to the skin.

Nothing quite brings out the scents of fall like Cinnamon.  We put it in our pies, our breads, our cider…everything! Take this opportunity to revel in the scents of fall with these favorite fall diffuser blends.

I made this yesterday.  I’ve never made applesauce so I didn’t know how easy it was.  Peel apples, cut, add essential oils, simmer 30 min.  Mash.  Mmmmmmm.

Here’s the recipe from Young Living.  I didn’t know how it was going to turn out so I made half a batch.  2 lbs of apples is approximately 6 apples.  I then added 2 drops of lemon eo and one drop of cinnamon bark eo.  And yes, one drop of cinnamon bark flavors this entire bowl!  Always start with a small amount of cinnamon bark and it is a very potent flavor.  As a matter of fact, if you are making a half batch I would maybe dip a toothpick in the cinnamon bark and drag it through the applesauce and then taste test.  You can always add more.

I opted to mash instead of puree because I like my applesauce chunky.  You want some, admit it.  There’s no shame in that.  The drooling is a little bit embarrassing though – pull yourself together and make your own!
