Many people know about Cinnamon but not many people know about the enormous power of Cinnamon leaf oil. Just like Apple Cider Vinegar which cures so many every day ailments, Cinnamon Leaf Oil should be an essential tool for healthy living. It is so powerful that just one small 2oz bottle of our concentrated high quality Cinnamon leaf oil is enough to last a year or more for most people.

  1. Home Health Remedies - If you have a stubborn toenail fungus, Ceylon Cinnamon Leaf Oil is by far the best solution. We have customers who have used Ceylon Cinnamon Oil who have seen rapid results. . Click here to read our in depth blog post on how to use Ceylon Cinnamon leaf Oil and Cinnamon sticks and tea to solve your toenail fungus issue.

    The oil is also good for athletes foot because it dries the area and is a powerful anti-fungal. If you are prone to foot fungal infections as a result of playing sports a Cinnamon Oil foot wash is just the thing. In addition, spray 1-3% diluted Cinnamon leaf Oil on the infected area and let it dry naturally. You can apply 100% too, but be warned this oil is very hot and may cause irritation.

    If you have any gum issues or tooth pain, dilute to 0.5 % with water and rinse regularly. Dentists have used Eugenol (the principal ingredient in our Ceylon Cinnamon leaf oil but usually Eugenol comes from clove) for reducing pain. They say the Eugenol that comes from Ceylon Cinnamon Leaf Oil is much better. Can also be diluted and used as a mouthwash, as cinnamon also has anti-bacterial properties. For a mouthwash we recommend 0.5%. No more.

  2. Disinfectant - You can create your own natural disinfectant and hand sanitizer at home. 1% Cinnamon leaf oil mixed with water is enough to meet all your disinfectant needs for disinfecting kitchen counter tops, trash cans, inside your refrigerator, bathrooms and toilets, car interiors,door knobs, cutting boards, and the kitchen sink. Unlike commercial hand sanitizers, this is child and pet friendly. All you need to do is NOT to exceed the 1% dilution ratio because it is that powerful.

  3. Odor Neutralizer - Because of its strong germicidal, anti-septic and anti bacterial properties it is commonly used in toilets, cat litter areas, trash cans and kitchens to get rid of odors. Use it in your vehicles to get rid of bad odors and bacteria that accumulate in a closed environment. If you have children you know how your car windows and virtually every surface can get smothered in germs. Spray 1% Cinnamon Oil diluted with 99% water and wipe down or leave it without wiping depending on the surface. While not as nice smelling as the Cinnamon Bark Oil (which is also good for odor control) the leaf oil has a stronger smell that is more cost effective and still pleasant.

  4. Insect Repellent- If you have the common black ant problem in the house during the summer months spray Cinnamon leaf oil on your kitchen counter tops and virtually any surface where the ants tend to congregate and wipe with a wet cloth. Read our instructions on how to get rid of ants.

    Spray those annoying flies with diluted cinnamon leaf oil. It will bring them down so you can catch them and eliminate them.

  5. Fungicide - Cinnamon Leaf Oil is a must for the avid or casual Gardner! If you have plants that seem to get infected with one fungus infection or another or get inundated with all kinds of pests, a 1% Cinnamon Leaf Oil to water spray will prevent many of the problems. Remember it is an anti bacterial and anti microbial so it will kill any fungus. It is truly important to get rid of any fungal infections in indoor plants which may damage your health.

    And insects just don't like the smell of Cinnamon which is why it is a favorite of orchid growers whose orchids suffer from more pests and fungus issues than most other plants due to their fragile nature. But you can use it on virtually any kind of plant or fruit. And its safe to eat, all natural and contains no manufactured harmful chemicals.

  6. Massage - Because of its warming properties Cinnamon oil can be used in blended massage oils, to improve blood circulation. Good for bronchitis, diarrhea, chills, infections, flu, rheumatism and arthritis. Combine cinnamon oil with massage oil or Jojoba to increase circulation and relieve tense muscles. Here are a few massage oil recipes using both leaf oil or bark oil.

    Brings heat to sore muscles to aid the healing process by relaxing the muscles and stopping lactic acid build up. Mix 1% cinnamon leaf oil with water or carrier oil and apply. Studies seem to indicate that low level heat is better than things like Ibuprofen.

Cinnamon Oil Ratios for scenting
Here are some basic guidelines if you want to use Ceylon Cinnamon Leaf Oil or Bark Oil for personal use. Best to scent from the lower end of this scale with the base whether it is hand cream or shampoo because Cinnamon oil is very hot and becomes progressively hotter on skin. On first contact it won't feel hot. So test with low doses and see how it feels over time. For dilution chart click here - Cinnamon Oil Dilution Chart
