Organic Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is often used within a number of personal care and wellness applications, and we encourage you to research the numerous benefits of this helpful oil. It does pose a higher risk of skin sensitization and we encourage heeding Tisserand/Young's maximum 0.07% dermal limit for the oil for leave-on skin formulations.
For holistic aromatherapy applications, Organic Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is especially energizing and uplifting. Although spice oils like Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil are warming and are most commonly used during the Autumn and Winter seasons, the oil is lovely to use at any time of year. As a warming oil, it is a wonderful addition to massage oil blends. However, it is highly sensitizing and great care must be used when using it topically.
For topical formulations intended for adults, Essential Oil Safety Edition 2 by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young recommend a dermal maximum of 0.07% for Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil.
