Cinnamon Bark by Amrita Aromatherapy is used for oral care & diffusion primarily because it is too irritating to use on the skin. In addition to smelling heart-meltingly sweet, cinnamon oil is antiseptic, pain-relieving & stimulating.
Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is spicy and warm. The scent floods the senses with the fiery and infinitely sweet aroma, reminiscent of cinnamon disk hard candy.
Because it is too irritating to use on the skin, it must be diluted extremely well before applying to the skin. A dilution of 0.2% should be the maximum and a patch test should be done before topical use. Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is often used in small quantities to give a slightly spicy tone to essential oil blends.
