Do not exceed 1% for skin application. We recommend starting with just 1 drop of essential oil to 1 tablespoon of unscented lotion or carrier oil and gently massage in skin as needed to relieve muscle pain or improve circulation. Consider pairing with a skin friendly pain oil such as Balsam Copaiba. If diffusing in an ultrasonic diffuser, blending with Sweet Orange will cut the harshness of the cinnamon leaf.

My husband uses this oil mixed with oregano oil for oil pulling as recommended by his dentist. His dentist is very pleased with how his gums have improved. After taking your Green Cleaning Workshop, I plan to incorporate it in some of my cleaning supplies, especially over the winter months and cold/flu season.
