Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil
Cinnamon Leaf (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) is a top choice for pain numbing and warming. It is anti-infectious. It is helpful to diffuse during cold and flu season when combined with a less harsh oil such as sweet orange. Cinnamon Leaf should not be mistaken with Cinnamon Bark, which is much harsher and can be damaging to the skin if used improperly. Use a low dilution if applying to the skin (no more than 1 drop per ounce of carrier is recommended).

Do not exceed 1% dilution 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 utrasonic diffuser, blending with Sweet Orange will cut the harshness of the cinnamon leaf.
