Cinnamon bark oil
(Cinnamomun zeylanicum)

There’s no doubt that Cinnamon Bark is a favorite during the winter season, as its sweet and spicy scent evokes memories of the holidays.

Also available in Vitality.
(Cinnamomum verum)

Cinnamon Bark Vitality essential oil has a warm, spicy flavor that complements a variety of classic culinary treats and drinks.

Cinnamon bark originates from the Lauraceae botanical family, and the oil is carefully distilled from the bark of a small evergreen tree that is native to Sri Lanka. The Cinnamomum verum tree can grow up to 30 feet tall and is recognizable for its thick, leathery leaves with pointy tips. Among the leaves, you can find inconspicuous yellow flowers and small, black, fleshy berries.

Cinnamon Bark essential oil’s warm and comforting aroma exudes a familiar scent from the naturally occurring constituent cinnamaldehyde.
