Botanical Name: Cinnamomum zeylanicum Origin: Sri Lanka
Organic cinnamon bark oil is steam distilled from the dried bark of Cinnamomum zeylanicum. With properties of both a middle and base note, warm and spicy cinnamon bark essential oil is great in aromatherapy blends with other oils such as nutmeg, mandarin, rose, or clove.
Cinnamon has been a highly prized commodity since antiquity and is one of the most recognizable scents in the world. Cinnamaldehyde is the main constituent in the bark oil. It is used in perfumery to give a blend lift and strength, and is considered a mild fixative. Use this oil with caution in soap making, because it may darken the color of your product.
