Spread these powerful essential oils for strong immune health!
Cinnamon bark essential oil for immune health
Cinnamon bark is a powerful essential oil for immune health!
it contains More than 60% cinnamaldehyde– A powerful natural ingredient that can boost immune health and reduce the presence of microbes.
In a dispenser, cinnamon bark essential oil can help:
- Purify the air and reduce airborne germs
- Boost your immune health
- Calm stress and inspire confidence
- Fill your room with the wonderful scent of cinnamon!
Safety must come first!
The cinnamaldehyde in cinnamon oil can cause serious irritation to the skin or mucous membranes (such as the inside of your nose).
Less with this oil!
Take care not to stain your skin with undiluted cinnamon bark oil. If you do, rub the area with a carrier oil (such as jojoba) to dilute the essential oil, or wash your skin with soap and water. And definitely wash your hands before touching your eyes!
Cinnamon bark should be avoided during pregnancy and lactation, and we suggest not spreading it around infants and young children.
In this week’s recipe, I mix one drop of cinnamon bark with three other immune health essential oils.
Immune health diffuser blend with cinnamon
- 3 drops of sandalwood essential oil (Santalum Album)
- 2 drops of wild carrot essential oil (Dojos Caruta)
- 2 drops carat thyme linalool essential oil (Thymus vulgaris Ct. Linalool)
- 1 drop of cinnamon bark essential oil (Cinnamum xylanicum)
So how do the other three essential oils for immune health support cassia cinnamon?
Sandalwood essential oil
Sandalwood is a rich, deep woody oil.
It is very soothing to the body and mind. Sandalwood oil can help you manage stress and get a more restful sleep, thus improving your body’s natural immune health.
The Santalol This oil contributes to its calming effect, and has also been shown to be effective against a variety of microbes (including some viruses).
Thyme i. Linalool essential oil
Thymus vulgaris i. Linalool
In World War I, thyme oil was used in field hospitals to treat bandages for wounded soldiers.
This is just one example in a long historical tradition of using thyme to protect the body from germs!
Some types of thyme can cause irritation. Since we already have cinnamon oil in this dispenser blend, I am using a gentler type of thyme that contains Linalool (Which also happens to be one of the main ingredients in Lavender.)
Using thyme i. Linalool essential oil for immune health provides strong protection, albeit with a delicate touch of lavender.
Wild carrot essential oil
We feature Wild Carrot oil in our weekly Aromahead emails for January!
Wild carrots A-Benin The content contributes to the air-purifying effects of the diffuser mix, helping to reduce airborne microbes.
The light, earthy and woody scent of wild carrot oil is peaceful and deeply rooted. It works alongside sandalwood to calm the nervous system, allowing the body to recover from the effects of stress.
