Product Overview

Our organic Cinnamon Bark has an extremely powerful, very warm, diffusive, spicy-sweet aroma with a persistent dryness and warm, lasting powdery note in the drydown. The sweetness of Cinnamon adds warmth and a spicy appeal to perfume compositions when used in trace amounts and is often used in Amber and chypre perfumes to add a spicy, warm and sweet touch.

Cinnamomum zeylanicum is indigenous to wet tropical regions of Sri Lanka, India and Southeast Asia. The scented, bushy evergreen has an aromatic bark that is removed from the young shoots, then cleaned and dried into golden brown aromatic quills.[1]

Cinnamon is a well-known the world over for its extensive use in the realm of spices and in natural perfumery. It can add warmth to dry woody and spicy Ambers, and also adds a gourmand note to sweet, accords as it has the familiar association of freshly baked goods. It can also be used sparingly in florals as well as in fougère and aromatic herbal perfume formulas. We strongly emphasize that because perfumes are topically applied, potential skin irritancy needs to be kept in mind when Cinnamon Bark is incorporated into perfume compositions.

The essential oil is perfect for use in a diffuser, particularly around the holiday season. However, please note that Cinnamon Bark oil is a known skin irritant and must be used with respect and care if needed for topical applications. Please be sure to see Blending Suggestions and Safety Considerations.

The perfect Abramelin Oil ingredient


I've been searching for a while to find the best Cinnamon Oil possible to use when making Abramelin Oil for Thelemic practices, and this is the one hands down. Nothing else has that burn I've been looking for, but this one comes out miles ahead of anything else I've tried. Using Crowley's formula, this one provides that perfect amount of burning warmness I've been seeking. I'll never source my Cinnamon from any other place now.

Love it


This oil smells amazing, think Big Red, but better, and is very, very long lasting. It is my absolute favorite oil to use in my diffuser.

Red Hots!


If you've ever had red hots candy, then you'll know exactly what this smells like.

Review by Justin 9/30/2017

warm and cool


Lovely, slender, stripped-down cinnamon. I also found it surprisingly cool, fresh like a bergamot. But it also contains the spicy essence of cinnamon, so if you want to warm it up with vanilla or tonka bean, it's lovely that way. I have mixed this cinnamon with vanilla absolute, violet leaf, and tonka bean for a lovely warm-but-fresh home fragrance.

Review by Rachel 10/20/2016

Finally, true cinnamon.


I was expecting the usual cinnamon that you smell everywhere, but nope, not this one. This is the real deal and not that cheesy New England potpourri version of cinnamon that you usually find. I'm not a fan of cinnamon leaf at all so this bark version is a real keeper. You can actually smell the woodiness of it. Next I'll have to try Eden's CO2 version. Use sparingly because not only is it intense but it's also one of the reddening/irritant essential oils. Mucus membranes, watch out (like Ginger). I love this Cinnamon Bark and I wonder if it's because it's organic that it's such a high quality, true scent.

Winter Recipes

We all deserve a little pampering before, during and after the holidays. This time of year often means stress, dry skin and a chill in the bones.
