Cinnamon Bark oil was one of the oils that doTERRA focused on this month in a newsletter they put out so I wanted to review it on here. I’ve written about Cinnamon oil before because of it’s many uses, plus it’s an oil that is in a lot of our popular blends. One of the uses is for helping to soothe overworked muscles and joints by mixing it with a carrier oil or cream and massaging it into the affected areas. I actually did this the other day after I hiked my mountain because I wanted to change up my routine. I usually use Deep Blue and Copaiba oils on my knees after I climb because it allows my body to bounce back quickly. It was nice to use another oil for the target and to also get a positive result as well. ~ Some of the other ways that people like to use this versatile oil are by mixing it into recipes for cakes, cookies, and frosting. The best way to add the oil into the mixes is to insert a toothpick into the bottle letting a little of the oil to soak into it. Then just stir the toothpick into the mixture until you have the taste you’re satisfied with. Cinnamon oil is a strong oil so a full drop might be too much for a recipe. ~ In case of an irritated throat, mix one drop of Cinnamon oil in a cup of warm water or tea and slowly drink it down. This will ease the ‘tickle’ and allow your throat to calm down. ~ The last use I’ll share is that Cinnamon oil is a wonderful, natural insect repellent. By rubbing a little over exposed areas of the skin with a carrier oil, you can relax and enjoy BBQing, boating, or any other outdoor activity without swatting away unwanted pests. ~ For more info about this oil just contact me any time!
Have a great day! Jana
