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. It is a helpful addition to tooth or gum products at a highly diffused rate.
Performance in Cold Process Soap: This essential oil can cause some extreme acceleration and gel phase. Use it at a very light usage rate (.5%), or in a blend to help it to play nicely!
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.
