This oil is extracted from the inner bark of a type of tree called Cinnamomum, which is a genus of evergreen aromatic trees, and is an excellent source of important minerals like iron and calcium. Cinnamon can also be made in to a powder but it is easier to rub on to skin in oil form like this. Cinnamon is notable for its warm, spicy aroma and it is no surprise that when it is used for baking and cooking that its distinctive smell is unmistakable.
One of the benefits of Cinnamon is its energy boosting prowess in the way it increases blood flow around the body. The uses of Cinnamon as an ingredient within aromatherapy can be traced back to ancient civilisations and ancient Egypt in particular. This supplement is said to have an ‘uplifting’ effect and you can blend this with a suitable oil carrier before massaging on to your skin.
