You already love the scent of cinnamon; now put the oil to work solving intestinal woes and fighting those pesky infections that threaten your household. When colds or flu strike, cinnamon bark oil in honey can warm you and relieve your pain as it gets to work fighting the infection. And it works to protect other family members from catching the illness too. If diarrhea, vomiting, or flatulence is a problem, cinnamon bark oil calms the spasms of the digestive tract to relieve these disturbing symptoms.

Preventative Blends: Cinnamon bark is great for that stubborn virus infection (and as a preventative if others in the home are sick), add 1 drop of Cinnamon Bark to a tablespoon of honey and take internally – repeat 1 to 3 times per day, no more than 3 drops per day. Don’t allow the oil to touch the tongue (because it will be irritating to the skin) – “ball it up” in the honey.
Foot Care: Great for a foot massage blend! Use cinnamon bark in a foot massage oil at a 1% dilution (5 –6 drops per 1 oz. carrier of oil). Great for relieving achy, cold feet, making them feel pain-free and toasty warm!
