History: Cinnamon has been used by the Chinese as early as 2700 BC and the tree has been grown in Ceylon since 1200 AD. The Egyptians used it in their embalming process. Only the royalty of Greece and Rome were allowed to use the spice. The spice has been highly sought after and was often more valuable than gold. The Chinese used it for depression and to strengthen the heart. The Japanese used it to kill off bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms.
Advisory: Use with caution. Cinnamon Bark essential oil is a skin irritant when undiluted. It is considered a dermal toxin, irritant and sensitizer. It is also an irritant to the mucous membranes when undiluted. According to Robert Tisserand, the author of Essential Oil Safety, suggests that a recommended maximum dilution would be no more than 0.1% before applying to the skin. That’s equivalent to one drop in 30-40 ml of a carrier oil. Although there are some who feel that Cinnamon Bark oil should never be applied to the skin no matter what dilution. Do not use in pregnancy, on babies/children or the elderly. It is sudorific (makes you sweat).
