Wholesale High Quality Cinnamon Oil/Cinnamon Bark Oil
Cinnamon essential oil is extracted from a tropical evergreen of the Lauraceae botanical plant family which is native to Sri Lanka, South India, the Comoro Islands, Indochina and Madagascar. The tree produces two very different oils by steam distillation; cinnamon bark oil is obtained from the dried inner bark of the tree whereas cinnamon leaf oil is obtained from the leaves and twigs.
The ancient Egyptians used cinnamon as a foot massage oil; other uses by the Egyptians included using cinnamon as a remedy for excessive bile. Traditional use of cinnamon also included using it as a sedative for birthing mothers and as an ingredient in mulled wine; cinnamon was a traditional ingredient of love potions and incense.
Cinnamon bark oil is primarily composed of the chemical component of cinnameldehyde whereas cinnamon leaf oil is primarily composed of the chemical component of eugenol. Cinnamon bark oil is considered to be the greater skin irritant as its chemical components make it a dermal toxin; cinnamon leaf oil, although relatively non-toxic, could produce a reaction due to some presence of the chemical component of cinnameldehyde in the oil.
Cinnamon leaf oil can be used to help menstrual difficulties and to stimulate contractions in child birth; cinnamon is an emmenagogue, which means it is capable of bringing on the onset of menstruation, and therefore it is advisable not to use cinnamon in pregnancy. However, cinnamon is helpful in relieving menstrual cramps when used in a hot compress.
Cinnamon leaf oil, which we sell, has a warm, spicy musky smell and the oil's color varies from yellow for the leaf oil and red-brown for the bark oil, which is not usually used in aromatherapy. The viscosity is medium to watery.
Origin of cinnamon oil
A native to Indonesia, but cultivated in Sri Lanka and India, the tree is rust-colored and can grow up to 15 meters (45feet), but is kept down to 6 feet for commercial reasons.
It has shiny, leathery green leaves and small, white flowers, with oval shaped purple berries. The bark is pale brown and papery, with thick quills that roll inside one another, and is gathered every 2 years.
The Greek word 'Kinnamon' means 'tube' or 'pipe'. Cinnamon oil was used as a temple incense, while the Egyptians used it for foot massage, as well as a remedy for excessive bile. It was also used as an ingredient for mulled wines, love potions and as a sedative during birth. It was an important trade commodity between India, China and Egypt.
The leaves and twigs or inner dried bark are subjected to steam distillation. The leaves yield 1.6 - 1.8 % and the bark 0.5 - 1.00 % oil.
The essential oil that we sell is extracted from the leaves, as it yields a more delicate oil.
The main chemical components of the essential oil, obtained from the leaves, are eugenol, eugenol acetate, cinnamic aldehyde and benzyl benzoate
Cinnamon oil, that is extracted from the leaf, is non-toxic. Caution must be exercised since the cinnamaldehyde and eugenol contained in the oil could cause irritation, especially to the mucus membranes, so this oil should be used with care. Due to the emmenagogue action of the oil, it should be avoided in pregnancy.
High dosages can cause convulsions. The leaf oil should be avoided during pregnancy, while the essential oil extracted from cinnamon bark should be avoided in total, as it is considered to be a dermal toxin, irritant and sensitizer.
The therapeutic properties of cinnamon oil are analgesic, antiseptic, antibiotic, antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, astringent, cardiac, carminative, emmenagogue, insecticide, stimulant, stomachic, tonic and vermifuge.
