Cinnamon Leaf Cinnamomum zeylanicum 15 ml
Like clove, cinnamon leaf is a powerful local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory. Although fiery and hot, if used in small amounts (3-5 drops per oz of carrier) it can be safe on the skin and very effective for chronic inflammation. The oil smells beautifully of cinnamon and clove.
For colds & flu prevention use at a 1% dilution, 5-6 drops per ounce of carrier oil or lotion. Combine with other oils such as Ravintsara, Pine, Sandalwood, Lavender and Ginger when a cold is coming on.
Cinnamon Leaf has a strong character and can be used to emotionally support someone who is feeling weak and in need of more energy. Its spicy, warm aroma lends itself to an uplifting effect when used in a blend. Use with caution as you would Clove Bud.
