Many people know about Cinnamon but not many people know about the enormous power of Cinnamon leaf oil. 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. But always dilute before use. Usually to 1% with 99% water.

  1. Odor Control - This extra strong smelling Cinnamon Leaf Oil although not quite as nice smelling as the more expensive Bark Oil is cost effective and has the extra kick for getting rid of powerful lingering odors. The type of odors that cling stubbornly to you Kitchen garbage bin or toilets. Dilute and wipe down all such surfaces or just spray a spurt at 100% with a moist micro fiber cloth and wipe down. If you are spraying the toilet seat, be careful that it is diluted properly to 1%. It is spicy hot like Chilli powder. At 1% it is fine on the toilet seat.

  2. Kitchen Sinks - Do you get that awful smell from your Kitchen sink? Mix 1 tsp. Cinnamon Leaf Oil, 2 tsp Baking Soda with 1/2 cup water. Pour down sink to get rid of nasty odor in the sink and trap. Ideally do it at night just before you go to bed so the Cinnamon Bark can eat away at the odor.

  3. Smelly shoes - Dilute to 1% with water, spray or wipe and let dry naturally. Great for sneakers which tend to be breeding grounds for toenail fungus and athletes foot. Cinnamon Oil will make your shoes smell nice and keep it dry because the oil tends to dry out fabrics. Dilute and use, because using at 100% it will stain your shoes and not to mention being a little too spicy hot on your feet.

  4. Reusable shopping bags - With the advent of reusable shopping, we have new problem. Spilled food espeically from meat that cause nasty odors. Even if you wash them which is not always possible. Next time just spray some diluted Cinnamon Leaf Oil. If it is a cloth bag let it absorb. If it is a thermo inuslated reusabale shopping bag spay and wipe down the inside. Smell gone in seconds plus some other benefits. Chemical free and food safe. Why use chemical to get rid of odors?

  5. Kitchen Cupboards- Add 12 drops to 2 oz. of water in a spray mister bottle shake well, spray and wipe down inside cupboard surfaces with a moist micro fiber cloth to keep away insects. Also great for wiping down the inside of your refrigerator. Spray on cutting boards where meats have been cut. Much better than using chemicals. Even if it gets sprayed on food, Cinnamon Oil is edible and poses no danger. When diluted of course. At 100% it might irritate your skin but it won't kill you or cause serious chemical poisoning.

  6. Ants and Raccoons - By far the best trick to keep ants at bay is Ceylon Cinnamon Leaf Oil. Ever heard of that old wives tale of using Cinnamon to keep away ants? Well it does work. Using Cinnamon leaf Oil works hundred time better because it is concentrated and far less messy.

    Ants do not like the smell of Cinnamon Oil. Dip a Q-tip in 100% Cinnamon Leaf Oil and draw single lines to create demarcation zone. If it is the kitchen, create a line with the Cinnamon dipped Q-tip around the outer edges of your Kitchen. Do not leave gaps in the line. Then vacuum up any ants within your exclusion zone. Ants will not cross the Cinnamon line. Do not spray Cinnamon Oil all over the place if you have ants. The ants will get confused and run around everywhere. Ideally you want to vacuum up the ants and clean first and then apply the Cinnamon Oil line to create an exclusion zone.

    If you got Raccoons and other animals on your outdoor garbage bin, spray Cinnamon oil on the lid. You can either create a single line on the outer edges of the garbage bin lid or spray diluted Cinnamon Oil on the lid. Best is to apply a little on the inside edge of the Garbage bin. That way the Cinnamon Oil will not get washed away or dry out in the hot sun. It will keep on smelling strong to repel those pesky animals.

  7. Plants - Great for avid gardeners to wipe down plant leaves. Spray Leaf Oil diluted to 1% with water on plants. Wash or wipe down the leaves.

  8. Head Lice Shampoo - The spicy hotness of Ceylon Cinnamon leaf oil may be useful as an anti head lice shampoo. Lice do not like the spicy hotness. Best to mix 0.5% - 1% with your shampoo or make your own. Be careful because the leaf Oil is hot and spicy. Put too much and you will be dancing around like the head lice too. Do not get it on your eyes.

  9. Massage - Because of its warming properties Cinnamon oil can be used in blended massage oils to warm your body. When you need extra heat to massage a special sore spots mix Leaf Oil with a carrier Oil. Careful only 1-3 drops is needed for most applications.
