Cinnamon Essential Oil is probably my favorite oil in fall. I diffuse it in almost every autumn blend! It’s spicy aroma seems to warm up in the chilliest rooms. Like Cassia, it is a very warm oil so you CANNOT use it directly on your skin. It MUST be mixed with a carrier. The best thing about the fall blends, is how many of these have antibacterial and antiviral properties, cinnamon is no exception. That means our houses get to smell phenomenal all season long and it’s fighting all those bad germs in the air that our kids, pets, visitors, and even selves bring home from the big bad world out there!
Historically, Cinnamon is an ancient spice used by the ancient Chinese as a cure-all. They used it as a tranquilizer, tonic, stomachic, as being good for depression, and for a weak heart. doTerra Cinnamon Essential Oil is steam distilled from the bark.

You can also use Cinnamon Essential Oil when your recipe calls for cinnamon. Just remember that oils are VERY strong and can be overpowering if you use more than a few drops.
Warning!!! Do not use cinnamon directly on your skin without a carrier oil. It is a very warm oil and will irritate your skin. Do not inhale directly, as it may also irritate the dermal tissue in your nose. In cooking, use very small quantities.
