Some information about cinnamon

Organic cinnamon essential oil

Cinnamon is an evergreen tree of about 15 meters high with thick leaves and white flowers. The bark is harvested every 2 years and then dried and sold in the form of sticks for culinary use. The leaf of the cinnamon tree gives an essential oil very rich in eugenol, which gives it marked insect repellent properties. In addition, the essential oil of these leaves is spicy and similar to clove, known for its purifying properties. As such, it is excellent for reducing bad smells such as tobacco or cooking.

The very fragrant aroma of cinnamon is reminiscent of lemon balm. You can mix it with citrus, lavender, pine or rosemary. This essential oil is a powerful insecticide, antiseptic, antiviral and antibacterial. You can use it to treat insect bites, colds and viral infections.

Usage tips

Essential oils are powerful natural substances and should therefore be used with care. Even if essential oils have been used since Antiquity, their mode of use and the precautions for use are often poorly known. Many books deal with essential oils. It is therefore advisable to refer to it to find out about the traditional modes of use.

As an indication, some examples of use 

Utilisation par voie orale

Helps stimulate the body's natural defences. The recommended daily dose is 1 drop diluted in a teaspoon of honey, then in a hot drink, once a day.

Cinnamon, with its warm and spicy smell, is very appreciated for flavouring teas, infusions or cakes. Put 1 drop previously diluted in a teaspoon of honey or in neutral vegetable oil.

Inhalation use


In case of respiratory infections, flu, colds or sinusitis, pour 3 drops of cinnamon essential oil into a bowl of hot water and inhale for 10 minutes, with your head covered with a towel.


Use by diffusion

To maintain vitality and intellectual tone but also to clean the air in your home, diffuse 15 to 30 minutes of cinnamon essential oil in the living rooms.


Application by massage or compress

It is advisable to mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil (sweet almond, jojoba, macadamia, rose hip, argan, olive, etc.) to use it as a massage oil.

In case of nail fungus, insect bites, acne, 15 to 30 drops diluted in 100ml of St. John's wort oil, applied locally or incorporated into a warm moistened compress.

Dans le bain

As essential oils are not soluble in water, they must be mixed with an emulsifier before being poured into the bath. For example, they can be mixed with a liquid soap or a neutral shampoo (1 tablespoon). You can also use our Solubol® dispersant. It is advisable not to stay there for more than 20 minutes. The use of 10 drops of Ceylon cinnamon in a bath will be good in case of fatigue, colds, sinusitis. It is also associated with good effects in cases of impotence or frigidity.

100% pure and natural oil

Accéder au dossier

An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.

Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
