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)

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.

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.

I attended in April. I  helped my 70 y.o. recently widowed neighbor who suffers with anxiety attacks by giving her a roll on blend from Lorries recipes. She just called me and asked for more! I must find my notes as soon as this session is over!

 I really recommend the class. Life changer!!!

Diane Maiorisi

Your class has given me the tools to use more essential oils. I am teaching two oil classes at a local hospital. I am studying your materials and you really set the stage for that. I am so glad I took your class. It was so great.

Your books are so good and useable. I was so impressed with your class. I certainly came home with so much more than the cost.

You are amazing. I am so glad I got to meet you and consider you one of the most gifted and loving souls in this business and I really mean that. Have a great day.

Linda Kantor, Wyoming 

My eyes were opened to many new techniques for Emotional Healing. The Essential Oil blends made in the class lead me to more understanding about how to use Flower Essences and Essential Oils. Then learning how to reshape a negative personal story are some of the valuable things that I learned in the Emotional-healing Workshop with Lorrie Hargis RA. So thankful that I will receive the recording of this as well because it was packed with valuable information on Emotional Healing that I will share in the near future.
