Cinnamon Leaf: Though non-toxic, this essential oil is a skin irritant and potentially a skin sensitizer so you should use it highly diluted if you're using it in any leave-on skin products.
This essential oil smells like (shocker) Cinnamon and is considered a broad spectrum anti-bacterial and anti-fungal oil. It is a helpful addition to tooth or gum products at a highly diffused rate.
Distillation Method: Steam Distillation Country of Origin: Indonesia Botanical Name: Cinnamomum Zeylancium Part: Leaves and twigs
NOTE: Cinnamon is not to be used with pregnant women or children under the age of six years. Also, do not use Cinnamon Leaf if you are on blood thinning medications.
Since this oil often causes skin irritation, we do not recommend using Cinnamon Leaf essential oil in lotion or other leave-on products.

Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Jayne! I'm sorry you were disappointed with this essential oil. We love the straight cinnamon smell; this is an essential oil so it is 100% pure and smells exactly like what it is. If you're looking for a sweeter cinnamon you might like Cinnamon Sugar Fragrance Oil, Hot Apple Pie Fragrance Oil, or Arabian Spice Fragrance Oil.
