What is cinnamon essential oil used for? Here are some of the most popular ways cinnamon oil is used today:
1. Heart Health-Booster
Cinnamon oil can naturally help to boost heart health. An animal study published in 2014 demonstrates how cinnamon bark extract along with aerobic training can help to improve heart performance. The study also shows how cinnamon extract and exercise can help to lower both overall cholesterol and LDL “bad” cholesterol while raising HDL “good” cholesterol.
2. Natural Aphrodisiac
In Ayurvedic medicine, cinnamon is sometimes recommended for sexual dysfunction. Is there any validity to that recommendation? Animal research published in 2013 points towards cinnamon oil as a possible natural remedy for impotence. For the animal study subjects with age-induced sexual dysfunction, Cinnamomum cassia extract was shown to improve sexual function by effectively boosting both sexual motivation and erectile function.
3. Improves Blood Sugar Levels
4. For Skin, Hair and Lips
Cinnamon Oil Interactions & Precautions
Are there any potential cinnamon oil dangers? Cinnamon oil is generally considered safe, but there’s always the chance that some people might react to essential oils. It’s possible for sensitive people to experience allergic reactions when cinnamon oil is taken or applied topically. This might show up as skin irritation, such as itching and rashes spreading on the body.
It’s best to do a skin test on a small patch of skin when using a new essential oil to make sure allergies aren’t a problem. And if you ingest cinnamon oil and experience issues like nausea, stomach pain and diarrhea, stop taking it right away.
A small number of people have reported a burning sensation and pain when taking cinnamon oil, especially people who have ulcers in the mouth. And for anyone with a highly sensitive heartbeat and cardiovascular system, it’s possible for cinnamon to react with medications and cause dyspnea (difficulty breathing).
If you are currently pregnant, breastfeeding, taking medication or being treated for a medical condition, speak with your health care provider before using cinnamon essential oil.
