Start Fall off right with Cinnamon leaf


Cinnamon leaf is at the top of our list of essential oils for Fall, from infusing our coziest blankets to adding to seasonal décor. Here are a few facts, tips and info for getting in the spirit of the season safely with Cinnamon leaf essential oil. 

Cinnamon leaf supports:  

  • The Respiratory system. 
  • The nervous system. 
  • A healthy immune system.  
  • Soothing aches and pains. 
  • A healthy home, reducing microbes. 



Our Cinnamon leaf is steam-distilled from the leaves of cinnamon trees in Madagascar. Its aroma is sweet, spicy and clove-like, caused by its chemical compound cinnamaldehyde.  Cinnamon leaf has a lower percentage of cinnamaldehyde, which in turn gives it a less intense scent than Cinnamon bark essential oil. Cinnamon bark essential oil comes from the same tree, but is distilled from the bark instead of the leaves and has a very different chemical makeup. Cinnamon bark is also advised for different uses then Cinnamon leaf essential oil. 


A Little goes a LONG way! 

Cinnamon leaf essential oil has the highest level of the chemical component eugenol out of all cinnamon essential oils, which means you benefit the most by using small doses (a 0.6% dilution is all you need for its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties to work). Going over the recommended amount can lead to skin and mucous membrane irritation. Use caution with children and animals while diffusing; It is always best to make sure it easy for them to leave the room.
