Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is steam distilled from the bark of the cinnamon tree. The bark oil is generally preferred over Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil. However, oil distilled from cinnamon bark tends to be much more costly than that distilled from the leaves.

Aromatically, Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is much richer in aroma than ground cinnamon. Cinnamon Bark Oil tends to be warming, stimulating and energizing. It blends well with many other essential oils especially oils in the wood, spice, citrus and mint families.

It is my understanding that most of the “Ground Cinnamon” that we purchase in grocery stores, and even most of the “Cinnamon Sticks” that are sold are not true cinnamon, but are really its more affordable cousin, Cassia, Cinnamomum cassia.Topically, both Cinnamon Bark and Cinnamon Leaf essential oils should be used with extreme caution, if at all. The dermal maximum for Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is even less than for Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil
