WOW! Mark, I was just filling the empty capsules with cinnamon oil and I think I had an allergic reaction to it just now. My skin turned into red and the pain was massive. I tried this on my fathers skin to experiment and his pain and skin colour changes were not significant like mine. I don't know, I'm going to ingest it in a small dose. Did you have anything like that? Any sudden skin reaction with massive pain?
Edit: I just dropped some cinnamon oil onto my tounge to test and I think I may be allergic to cinnamon oil. I'm not sure if the reaction I get is from my immune system(allergy, sudden inflammation) or it is not an immune reaction but the cinnamon oil itself...
I'm going to experiment with thyme oil now.
Edit 2: Similar reaction to thyme oil on my skin and tongue. This is interesting, I have been using a very concentrated peppermint oil to treat my migraines and I don't get this kind of reaction from it.
"The taxonomic family Lamiaceae is known as the mint family. It includes many other aromatic herbs, including most of the more common cooking herbs, such as basil, rosemary, sage, oregano, and catnip."
Mark, would you like to test some pure, liquid cinnamon oil and thyme oil on your skin and tongue to see if you get this kind of reaction?
I'm not going to ingest these oils, I find them suspicious for now. I'm afraid of irritating my already inflamed digestive wall, that can cause tremendous pain and maybe increased bleeding.
Edit 3: I read some other users comments and the reactions I get seems very common with others as well. I'm going to try some thyme oil and see; but I still think it may be dangerous.
