Remember it is an anti bacterial and anti microbial so it will kill any fungus. It is truly important to get rid of any fungul 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, or diluted in the bath, to assist with bronchitis, diarrhea, chills, infections, flu, rheumatism and arthritis.

  7. Anti-Bacterial Foot Wash - If you are prone to foot fungal infections as a result of playing sports a Cinnamon Oil foot wash is just the thing. Use the 1% diluted Cinnamon Oil to soak your feet for 5-10 minutes. Not only is the warmth of cinnamon oil soothing, but it will kill any fungal infections like athletes foot. Depending on your skin sensitivity you can increase the dilution ratio to 3%. You maybe be tempted to exceed this ratio but this is unnecessary and may cause a burning sensation as Cinnamon oil is pretty powerful. But boy does it soothe aching feet and kill any germs as the same time.

  8. Anti-bacterial Mouthwash - Can also be diluted and used as a mouthwash, as cinnamon also has anti-septic properties. For a mouthwash we recommend 0.5%. No more.
