TC Essential Oils
Cinnamon has been a highly prized commodity since antiquity and is one of the most recognizable scents in the world. Cinnamon is derived from a tropical, evergreen tree that grows up to 45 feet high and has highly fragrant bark, leaves, and flowers. Cinnamaldehyde is the main constituent in the bark oil. It is used in perfumery to give a blend lift and strength, and is considered a mild fixative. Due to its high content of cinnamaldehyde, Cinnamon should be diluted with TC jojoba oil when applied to the skin.
