It is important to distinguish between the two variations of cinnamon oil, cinnamon bark oil and cinnamon leaf oil. Cinnamon Leaf Oil is considered much safer to use in aromatherapy. Cinnamon bark oil has a spicy smell whereas cinnamon leaf oil is said to smell like cloves.
Cinnamon leaf is anti-bacterial, anti-infectious and carminative. It is also antiseptic, an astringent and anti-spasmodic. Cinnamon leaf can be used for cystitis relief, depression, stress, constipation, indigestion, flatulence, rheumatism and poor circulation.
