Description: The cinnamon tree is an evergreen native to China and mainland South East Asia. It is an evergreen which reaches maturity at 10-12 years. It has shiny, leathery green leaves, and small, white flowers with oval shaped purple berries. The CO2 extraction method yields a greater number of aromatic compounds from the cinnamon than any other distillation process. In certain conditions at a low temperature Carbon Dioxide or CO2 can be pressurized to become a liquid. This liquid then acts as a solvent and is used to extract the oil from plants. After extraction is completed, the extraction vessel is brought back to normal temperature and the CO2 rapidly converts to gas leaving behind high quality oil that is free of solvents. CO2 extracted essential oils may have slight gelling or clouding when oils are cold. When the product is warmed slightly the oil will become a clear liquid again.

Aromatic Scent: Cinnamon Bark CO2 Oil has a warm, spicy scent that is somewhere between clove and cinnamon. It is slightly herbaceous with pepper notes.

Common Uses: The traditional use of Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is highly respected, because of the antiseptic and antimicrobial properties of the oil. It has been used to treat diarrhea and other problems of the digestive system. With its pleasant scent, it has been considered to be a perfect additive to creams, lotions, and soaps. From a spiritual perspective, it is believed to have a warming and uplifting characteristic.

Important Note: Cinnamon Bark CO2 is clear at warmer temperatures (room temperature or just above). As the temperature drops it will become cloudy, which is normal. If the oil is reheated, it will become clear again.

History: The medicinal use of Cinnamon Bark was first recorded in Chinese formulations as early as 2700 B.C. The herb has been used as a healing aid for stomach upset and gas, diarrhea, rheumatism, kidney ailments, and abdominal pain. The Egyptians used it as a foot massage, as well as a remedy for excessive bile. It was used as an ingredient of mulled wines, love potions and a sedative during birthing.
