    1. Cinnamon is one of the strongest essential oils out there and is one of the warming oils. It can be a mucous membrane irritant as well as a skin irritant. Even for use with adults, we recommend caution when using.

  1. Fact sheet is off… Cinnamon leaf is from the leaf of the tree cinnamon bark is from the bark. It’s an important distinction.

  2. This is helpful information because I was having a challenging time trying to figure out which one would be best to use in topical blends.

  3. How different is Cinnamon Bark oil? Would the recommendations be similar? Would cinnamon bark be Safe to diffuse with clove? I have no little children, but I tend to be sensitive & also have an elderly German Shepherd. Thank you!
