Regular price $38.00 Sale

Cinnamon Bark essential oil has been used as a tonic, digestive aid, and more for centuries. Closely related to Cassia, it's a "hot" oil, so don't go sniffing this one from the bottle if you'd like to keep your nose hairs intact, but diffused its aroma is very spicy and warm.

Because it is rich in antioxidants, Cinnamon bark essential oil is fantastic for scavenging free radicals, reducing inflammation, reducing UV damage and help to stimulate blood flow to hair follicles, which is critical to healthy hair growth.

Emotionally and spiritually, cinnamon oil is related to the lower chakras and can encourage self-acceptance or self-confidence, sexual expression, and the clearing of trapped emotions from past trauma and mood support.

It also correlates to our sense of safety and security, which when out of balance, can leave a person feeling jealous, insecure, controlling, or unable to be vulnerable in relationships. So it may then be beneficial for supporting healthy relationships, health boundaries, and healthy sexuality, as well.
