Cinnamon Leaf Oil

Cinnamon Leaf Oil

Cinnamon essential oil has a wonderful spicy fragrance. The scent reminds me of those wonderful cinnamon toothpicks we used to love as children. It has many benefits and uses, especially for diabetics. This has always been one of my favorite scents. I love candles, toothpaste, and much more that have this essential oil in it. Cinnamon oil was used in ancient times as a temple incense and used in mulled wines. ((mmmm, cinnamon wine……….))

 

What is Cinnamon Leaf Oil

Cinnamon leaf oil comes from the leaves of the Cinnamomum Verum. The evergreen tree can be found in many countries in over 100 varieties. The tree itself has shiny green leaves and small, white flowers. The fruit of the tree is a purple oval berry.

Cinnamon Leaf Oil vs Cinnamon Bark Oil

The oil made from the leaf of the cinnamon tree is high in eugenol which provides pain relief and it contains cinnamaldehyde. The oil produced from the bark of the cinnamon tree is high in cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamaldehyde is used in many chewing gums. Both of these oils are helpful and have great benefits. They are fragrant and spicy and blend well with many other oils. The cinnamon leaf oil is less expensive to create whereas the cinnamon bark oil is extremely refined and more expensive to create.
