Observations and Anecdotal Information
Cinnamon Leaf essential oil was one of the oils used for the mummification process in ancient Egypt. Its use as a medicinal herb around the world dates back to antiquity. It is a heart strengthener, increasing blood flow, and has blood thinning properties. It is anti-parasitic, and is effective against a broad range of parasites, including worms, amoebas, cysts, and other microscopic parasites.
Cinnamon Leaf essential oil carries pain relieving properties that are effective for arthritis pain, muscular and soft tissue pain, and spasm.
It helps strengthen and balance the reproductive system in males and females; and helps almost every kind of digestive disturbance, including ulcers, vomiting, nausea, indigestion, gas, and colon inflammation.
Cinnamon leaf essential oil is the preferred oil for many aromatherapy uses, as it is a little milder than the traditional oil made from the bark of the tree. It was once thought that cinnamon bark oil was superior to cinnamon leaf oil. Since 2007, there have been several studies worldwide that show that the opposite may be true. Cinnamaldehyde, the constituent that gives the oil its spicy aroma and many therapeutic properties, is just as strong in both oils. The leaf oil is less sensitizing to skin, and is less likely to cause irritation when used topically.
- Generally recognized as safe at normal doses.
- It can be sensitizing, and should not be used with sun exposure as it can create a rash or increase sun burn. Proper dilution rates will minimize this type of result, but sensitive people should test a little oil on their inner elbow for several hours before using it topically.
