Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil
Botanical name: Cinnamomum zeylanicum
Extraction method: Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the Ceylon Cinnamon Tree. Carefully-controlled steam is applied to the plant materials so that Essential Oil is released without destroying the temperature-sensitive botanical and aromatic compounds in it. This means you’re getting optimal benefits from our Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil.
Origin: Sri Lanka
Description:now also cultivated in many other countries such as China, India, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Indonesia. This tropical evergreen tree can grow up to 45 feet (15m) in the wild.
Essential Oil can be extracted from both the bark and leaves of the Ceylon Cinnamon Tree, with the Bark Essential Oil being more highly valued (and hence more expensive) for its superior aromatic qualities even though the two Essential Oils may smell similar. They’re slightly different in terms of chemical compounds makeup as they’re extracted from different plant parts of the same tree. Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil is lower in Cinnamaldehyde (which gives the distinctive cinnamony aroma) and higher in Eugenol than its Bark-distilled brother. While the Leaf and Bark Essential Oils can be used interchangeably, most people would use the more affordable Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil for daily functions and reserve the pricier Bark Essential Oil for special occasions.
Blends well with: Thyme, Clove Bud, Lavender, Cedarwood, Orange, Lemon, Neroli, Ylang-ylang, Rosemary
Aromatic scent: Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil smells spicy, warm like its Bark-distilled brother, but with clove-like notes because of its high Eugenol content. If you prefer a more cinnamon spice-like aroma, you should be buying the Bark Essential Oil instead.
