Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil- Is it Powerful?

Hello,

Lots of people ask me what is one of the most powerful essential oils?  For me it is Cinnamon Leaf not Cinnamon Bark however I have decided to really go into depth about Cinnamon Leaf and Cinnamon Bark for the next 3 months. We will discuss their therapeutic  properties, how to use them and their contraindications through videos on my Youtube Channel called Learning Essential Oils with Lorrie .

Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil- Cinnamomum verum J.Presl (Syn : Cinnamomum zeylanicum Blume)

Botanical Family- Lauraceae

Country of Origin- Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Indochina

Major Chemical Constituents- Eugenol (<= 85,00%) Eugenyl acetate (<= 8,00%) Benzyl benzoate (<= 7,00%) Beta caryophyllene (1,50 to 7,00%) Cinnamal (Cinnamaldehyde) (<= 3,00%)

Cinnamon Leaf in Madagascar

The aroma is  spicy, stimulating, warm, and sweet. It is middle note in perfumery. Cinnamon leaves are steam distilled. The color- pale yellow to brownish. Cinnamon leaf is high in a phenol called eugenol. Eugenol has also shown excellent antimicrobial activity in studies, being active against fungi and a wide range of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria (Marchese A, Barbieri R, Coppo E, Orhan IE, Daglia M, Nabavi SF, Izadi M, Abdollahi M, Nabavi SM, Ajami M. 2017)

Eugenol molecular structure

Cinnamon leaf essential oil also has shown to be effective against Salmonella Newport on organic leafy greens. (Todd J, Friedman M, Patel J, Jaroni D, Ravishankar S. 2013)

In my  five videos, you will learn how to effectively and safely use Cinnamon leaf essential oil  in formulations for colds, flus, coughs, as a protective air spray and for the chills! In these videos, you will see what essential oils that I have combined with Cinnamon leaf.  Here are the essential oils that combine well with Cinnamon Leaf (Hargis L. 2015)

Clove*, Orange, Lemon, Bergamot, Nutmeg*, Coriander, Cardamom, Frankincense, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Ginger, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Rosemary, Niaouli, Ravintsara, Tea Tree, Black Pepper, Sandalwood, Jasmine, Rose*, Myrrh, Lavender, Lime, Pine, Mandarin Red or Green, Oregano, Thyme thymol, Thyme linalol, Savory, Spearmint, Spikenard, Wintergreen, Yarrow and Ylang Ylang

Contraindications- Do not diffuse alone; always blend with other essential oils. Do not use in pregnancy. Skin Irritant. Do not use in bath or steam inhalation. Do not use on children under 8 years of age. When using Cinnamon leaf only use in 0.25 max in most IFRA categories.

*IFRA- Rose and Clove contain methyleugenol which is considered a skin Irritant when combining Cinnamon leaf with them  this could cause  formulations to exceed the IFRA restriction limits to be considered safe. Nutmeg contains safrole which can only be used in very small amounts and Cinnamon leaf contains small amounts blending them together can cause restrictions in formulations according to the IFRA Standards.

Enjoy all the wonderful attributes of Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil.

Fire and Smoke Exacerbate and Cause Breathing Problems!! Can Essential Oils Help?

Hello,
I have been staying in California this summer visiting family and friends! I love my home state however this year the fires and smoke have kept the Golden State under siege with damaged lands, homes and health!

My students in my aromatherapy certification program have clients who cannot get out of their homes due to existing breathing problems and others who don’t normally have breathing problems are starting to suffer because they have get out to do their daily work . The population most at risk are children, older adults, and those with asthma, COPD and bronchitis or chronic heart disease and diabetes. You can see the ash on homes, cars and anything sitting outside. So what is this doing to our bronchioles and lungs?

Here is what the lung association says, “One of the many pollutants found in wildfire smoke is particle pollution, which is a mix of very tiny solid and liquid particles suspended in air. How tiny? Many of the particles in wildfire smoke are no larger than one third the diameter of your hair. These particles are so small that they enter and lodge deep in the lungs.

Particle pollution triggers asthma attacks, heart attacks and strokes—and can kill. Studies of children in California found that children who breathed the smoky air during wildfires had more coughing, wheezing, bronchitis, colds, and were more likely to have to go to the doctor or to the hospital for respiratory causes, especially from asthma.

Another threat from forest fire smoke is carbon monoxide(CO)—a colorless, odorless gas most common during the smoldering stages of a fire and in close proximity to the fire. Inhaling CO reduces oxygen delivery to the body’s organs and tissues and can lead to headaches, nausea, dizziness and, in high concentrations, premature death.Wildfires spread many other harmful emissions, including nitrogen oxides and many hazardous air pollutants.”1

What can we do with Essential Oils to help us feel better when going through this disaster?

I decided to do a video to Learn How to Use Essential Oils to Help with “Breathing Problems!”

https://youtu.be/mfc5T85hv6c

4 drops Ravintsara essential oil

6 drops Rosemary 1.8 cineole essential oil

4 drops Peppermint essential oil

4 drops Geranium essential oil

6 drops Lemon essential oil

1oz. carrier oil such as Sunflower, Almond or Apricot

In an amber bottle, place essential oils and carrier oil. Roll between your hands thoroughly. Apply to sinus areas, chest and upper back and corresponding reflex points on your hands and feet.

Contraindications: Do not use in pregnancy and children under 2 years of age or if suffering from epilepsy.

Please go to the lung organization below to follow precautions to take when in disaster such as fire.

“Good morning, I’m sharing a couple of things today…SELF-SABOTAGE has been a running theme…

8 months ago @ the emotional healing class with Lorrie Hargis RA, I noticed myself self sabotaging pretty much all weekend. I’m thankful for being “present” in that class since it’s been a huge part of my fantastic journey.I got past the urge to sabotage myself when it was time for the “check-in” webinar we had recently with Lorrie. The self-talk was real. So I sat down with all items needed and “checked-in”It felt literally like I “choked” on my breath twice during the breathing exercise. A lot was revealed to me during that most wonderful, necessary, caring, safe and nurturing space with my EO tribe.I am well on my way, enjoying the journey immensely and proud of myself for honoring myself and giving myself the gift of tapping into all that is offered here and the harmonious exchange between us. Namaste🙏🏽.”

Essential Oil Blending Workshop in Indiana – Sept 2018

Hello,

Do YOU want to know how to make your own blend using essential oils?

I can’t wait to teach and train you how to blend in a fun, easy, yet scientific way – where you will learn how to make formulations according to the international fragrance standards. This is something that I did here in France as the owner/operator of an organic skin care company for over 11 1/2 years where I transformed over 120 products from Natural to Organic.

It took 7 years to do it! However I did it with a wonderful team and lovely, intelligent chemistry interns from Universities all over France. As you can see in the photo below, I continue to teach Masters II Chemistry Students as visiting professor at the Faculté des Sciences, University of Montpellier – teaching them how to use essential oils in skin care products (facial & body).

So this is where I am coming from – researching ingredients, developing products that were certified organic by Ecocert  and meeting the international standards and European regulations on using essential oils in skin care. Now I am going to share  this information with you, in this Essential Oil Blending Workshop.

Anxiety- Emotional Healing with Essential Oils and Flower Essences

Hello,

Did you know how many people suffer with Anxiety? According to the Anxiety Disorder Statistics. Anxiety Disorders affect 18.1 percent of adults in the United States (approximately 40 million adults between the ages of 18 to 54). – National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).

This is a lot of people and it seems to be growing. We can look at society in general and see why everything is going at lightning speed and yes our brains work fast but do our emotions? Well, the answer to that is a BIG FAT “NO” ! We have to have time to process our emotions. It is difficult to go from identifying an emotion and recognizing where it came from and then go straight to solution. It is IMPORTANT that we give ourselves time to process the emotion, recognize why we feel that way and where it all begin otherwise we are constantly being worried by the same thing,  in our present or past that can lead to Anxiety and no solution how to resolve it and let it go.

So Before we go to solution which is what we all want to do instead of going through the process. Let’s look at what anxiety is? Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe.

We all have some anxiety in our lives at point or another. For example- you could feel anxious before a test, performance or job interview which is perfectly normal. However if you are spending most of your day worrying and it is affecting your day, then you need to recognize it and seek help.

Here are several conditions where Anxiety can be the main symptom:

  • panic disorder
  • phobias such as agoraphobia or claustrophobia
  • post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • social anxiety disorder (social phobia)

Today,  I am only discussing generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) which is a chronic condition that causes you to feel anxious about a lot of situations and issues, rather than one specific event. I call it being a worry wart. This is where you are anxious most days and you have a hard time remembering when you felt relaxed. Usually as soon as one anxious thought or worry is resolved, another one appears.

This can cause mental and physical symptoms.

Mental Symptoms:

  1. Trouble sleeping
  2. Feeling restless/ worried
  3. Not being able to concentrate
  4. Irritated
  5. Constantly on “edge”
  6. Sense of dread
  7. Socially withdrawn from family and friends
  8. Find work difficult or stressful and start taking more days off

All these symptoms can lead to more worry,  lower the self esteem and escalate the Anxiety

Physical symptoms:

  1. Heart palpitations
  2. dizziness
  3. tiredness
  4. muscle aches and tension
  5. trembling or shaking
  6. dry mouth
  7. excessive sweating
  8. shortness of breath
  9. stomach ache
  10. feeling sick
  11. headache
  12. pin and needles
  13. difficulty falling or staying asleep (insomnia)

What can trigger Anxiety?

If you know what is causing your anxiety such as a specific phobia like claustrophobia you would know that being confined in a small space will trigger your anxiety. Not knowing what is triggering your GAD then it can intensify the anxiety and you may start to worry that there is no solution.

However, if you have GAD there are  self -help treatments that could be help easy the symptoms of anxiety yourself.

Self Help Suggestions:

Try an online course with a trained therapist or go to a cognitive behavioural therapist

This usually involves working from a book or computer programme for around six weeks or longer. In some cases, you may be closely supported by a trained therapist who you’ll speak to every week or two. Some treatments only involve minimal or occasional contact with a therapist, who monitors your progress. Also cognitive behavioural therapy is very beneficial for anxiety. It can help you understand your condition and learn ways to manage your anxiety by modifying negative or unhelpful thoughts and behavior.

Exercise

Exercise regularly, particularly aerobic exercise, may help you combat stress because it encourages the brain to release serotonin which improves your mood helping you to not worry so much.

Good aerobic exercises include:

  • walking fast or jogging
  • swimming
  • cycling
  • tennis
  • hiking
  • football or rugby
  • aerobics

Learn to relax

As well as regular exercise, learning how to relax is important.

You may find relaxation and breathing exercises helpful, or you may prefer activities such as yoga or pilates to help you unwind.

You can also try this

Avoid caffeine

Drinking too much caffeine can make you more anxious than normal. This is because caffeine can disrupt your sleep and also speed up your heartbeat. If you’re tired, you’re less likely to be able to control your anxious feelings.

Avoiding drinks containing caffeine – such as coffee, tea, fizzy drinks and energy drinks – may help to reduce your anxiety levels.

Avoid smoking and drinking

Smoking and alcohol have been shown to make anxiety worse. Only drinking alcohol in moderation or stopping smoking may help to reduce your anxiety.

Essential Oils for Anxiety:

Lavender, Grapefruit and Patchouli are the essential oils that I am going to use today for you to make an Anxiety Spray.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia Miller) Lavender Fine has a mellow, peaceful aroma which can be overwhelming. It is good for all kinds of nervous disorders like anxiety, hysteria, panic, mental exhaustion and headaches.

Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi Macfad) Grapefruit has a fresh and sparkling aroma. It helps with clarity and confidence mentally.

Patchouli ( Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) BenthPatchouli has an aroma which is hot and earthy. It is helpful for depression, stress and exhaustion.

Anxiety Spray:

20 drops Lavender(Lavandula angustifolia Miller)

20 drops Grapefruit(Citrus paradisi Macfad)

6 drops Patchouli( Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth)

2oz. water

2oz. amber glass bottle with sprayer.

Place essential oils in amber bottle. Add water. Roll between your hands to mix the essential oils thoroughly into the water. Shake before using. Spray in all four directions of the room.

Contraindications: Do not use in pregnancy.

Caution: Do not get it on your furniture. Essential oils can possibly damage varnished wood.
