Cinnamon Bark

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. It's most commonly used for matters of the immune system, and to help the body fight off funk. But it can also be useful for cleaning, air quality, and mood support.

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. 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.
