in this they used cinnamon bark oil. There is a difference in the compounds within the oil. You can search it out to find out how they differ (innamyl aldehyde etc).
For anyone wondering the differences:cinnamonvogue.com/which_cinnamon_oil_is_right_for_you.html
LEAF OIL FOR EVERYDAY USE
For most everyday applications Ceylon Cinnamon Leaf Oil is fine. It smells great but not as good as the Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil. What gives cinnamon it's characteristic cinnamon smell is an ingredient called Cinnamaldehyde. For example our Cinnamon Leaf Oil has about
10% Cinnamaldehyde while our Cinnamon Bark Oil has about
40%-50% cinnamaldehyde. The more cinnamaldehyde you have the more exotic and cinnamony the oil will smell.
LEAF OIL HAS MORE EUGENOL
Cinnamon Leaf Oil trades some of the smell for more of the Eugenol, which smells more like clove oil with hints of citrus. Eugenol like Cinnamaldehyde is a powerful anti bacterial and anti fungal.
Because Cinnamon Leaf Oil comes from steam distilling the leaves of the tree it is much cheaper. That makes it very cost effective for everyday household applications like disinfecting, getting rid of really bad smells in the toilet and kitchen, use for toenail fungus (read our blog post here), athletes foot and mold removal.
BARK OIL SMELLS BETTER
What makes Ceylon Cinnamon Bark very expensive is that one cinnamon stick has very little Oil. It too is steam distilled and very labor intensive, requiring skilled craftsmen to elicit the right quality. As a result there is a lot of wastage but the end result is an amazingly refined oil.
Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil (as opposed to the Cassia Cinnamon Bark Oil), is significantly better in quality. color, taste and aroma. Which is why the French perfume industry will only Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil in some of the most famous perfumes in the World. As does Coca Cola in making Coca Cola. All you need is a drop of this amazing oil.
FOR INGESTION USE BARK OIL
The chief benefit of Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil is that you can ingest it. But you should only do so with the help of a good essential guide book.
That is not to say our steam distilled Ceylon Cinnamon Leaf OI cannot be taken internally. Some do take the Cinnamon Leaf Oil internally for Lyme disease. But for obvious reasons we will not accept any liability if you do take any cinnamon oil internally. You need to be careful and follow a proper guide book or the advise of a medical professional.
BARK OIL IS BETTER FOR AROMATHERAPY
The best way to enjoy Cinnamon Bark Oil is with aroma therapy. Add 2-3 drops into an aroma therapy diffuser and the resulting scent is truly uplifting. Research shows that the scent of Cinnamon improves your mood, keeps you alert
, focused yet calm and collected. The perfect antidote for the winter blues.
MASSAGE WITH BARK OIL
You can also use Ceylon Cinnamon Bark in massage Oil. Mixed with a carrier Oil it warms the skin, improves blood circulation and the exotic scent will relax you from the most hectic of days. Which is not to say you can't use Cinnamon Leaf Oil in massage. You can and it is just as effective, but won't smell as nice.
Maybe you can get a bottle of each? Just guard your bottle of Cinnamon Bark Oil as you would an expensive perfume.
