I’ve used cinnamon spice in my baked goods for more years than I care to admit (and I’m sure you do as well). That was, until I discovered Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil.
Cinnamon Bark Essential oil has been used by many for centuries. Due to its’ warming properties, cinnamon essential oil has been known to help with circulation and infection.
This oil is hot and a little goes a long way. Use sparingly in your baked goods people. If you add too much to your cake batter, it may be too hot for you to eat.
If you are using this oil topically, be sure to dilute it with a carrier oil. Recommend a 1:3 ratio – 1 part cinnamon essential oil to 3 parts carrier oil
If you are baking with it, add it toward the end of your ingredients and use a toothpick to swirl a bit in your mixture.
You’ll find a handy cheat-sheet in the photograph of the majority of properties that one can benefit from with cinnamon bark essential oil use.
Using quality oils is extremely important. That is why I only recommend the oils I personally use. To learn more about essential oils, head on over to my essential oils page.
