Professional Aromatherapy Wild Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil by Oshadhi
Oshadhi - Professional Aromatherapy Wild Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil - 10 ml.
Oshadhi Wild Cinnamon Leaf (Cinnamomum verum) Essential Oil has a warm, spicy and sweet aroma. It is antiseptic and incredibly warming, and can be used as a digestive and respiratory support. This product is harvested in the wild in Sri Lanka.
Cinnamon is strongly antibacterial and antifungal, and is a good support for the immune system, but should be used with caution since it is a strong skin irritant. It is antiseptic and warming, and can be used as a digestive stimulant and respiratory support. It is stimulating and tonifying for the nervous system. However it is important to distinguish between the oil derived from the bark, and that from the leaf, since they have different makeups and different qualities. The oil from the bark has that familiar warm, spicy and sweet aroma. It is a strong skin irritant so this method of use is not recommended, although it can safely be used in a diffuser. The oil from the leaf has similar therapeutic properties, but it can be used with caution on the skin but in very low dilutions (0.5%). Aromatically it is more akin to Clove, than cinnamon. Cinnamon oil blends well with Clove, Orange, Mandarin, Frankincense, and Cedar.

USING ESSENTIAL OILS EVERY DAY!
Diffusers disperse essential oils into the air with a cool air stream or gentle warmth. They are ideal for cleansing and purifying the air and for creating a mood-setting, fragrant atmosphere. Use 4-8 drops of essential oil on the replaceable cartridge or pad for cool air diffusion. Use 25 drops or more in a nebulizer. Use 3-5 drops on warming diffusers. Refresh as needed.
Massage and Body Oil
Massage is considered by many to be one of the best ways to experience aromatherapy due to the combined benefits of touch and essential oils. Massage relaxes muscles and improves muscle tone, circulation, and lymph flow. it relieves physical tension and, in turn, mental stress. Standard dilution is 20 drops of essential oil to 2 ounces of vegetable oil or fragrance-free lotion. Sensitive skin may require a lower amount, such as 10 drops in 2 ounces, or less if necessary.
It's easy to make your own therapeutic massage oils using Oshadhi synergy blends. Simply add one-half of the 10 ml bottle of essential oil into one 200 ml bottle of Oshadhi organic carrier oil such as sweet almond, hazelnut, or sunflower. This makes a 2 1/2% dilution--perfect for a therapeutic massage and body oil.
Baths combine the restorative effects of both water and essential oils in a most pleasurable way. They are perfect to relieve muscle strain, soothe skin conditions, and promote emotional balance. Use 8-10 drops to a full tub of water. it is best to add the essential oil after you have immersed yourself, so you receive the full benefits of the oils as they begin to diffuse in the warm water.
Inhale the fragrance, three or four times, through the nose directly from the bottle or from a tissue sprinkled with 4 drops of essential oil.
Certain situations require a specific, direct application. In these cases, a stronger dilution is used for a brief period of time. The essential oils can be diluted in a carrier oil, or other medium such as aloe vera gel or witch hazel. Certain essential oils such as lavender and tea tree can be used undiluted for small areas such as an insect bite or scratch. Experiment with the strength and adjust to a higher dilution if there is skin irritation. To start: 10 drops of essential oil in 1 teaspoon of carrier oil.
After your shower, put 3-5 drops of essential oil in your hands and rub them together. While your skin is till damp from the shower, quickly and evenly spread the oil over your arms, legs, and torso. Allow to dry.
Foot baths are a wonderful way to pamper yourself--perfect when you do not have time for a full bath. Remember: when your feet feel good, you feel good all over! Use 2-4 drops in a tub of water. Adjust the temperature of the water to suit your needs: cool water invigorates and energizes, warm water sedates and relaxes.
A compress is a clean, damp, folded cloth that has been infused with essential oils and then applied to the skin. It employs either warm or cool water, depending on its use. Fill a basin with water and add 2-5 drops of essential oil. Stir briskly, lay in the cloth, wring, and apply.
Put one drop of essential oil on the hot rocks or mix 5 drops of essential oil in one cup of water and pour over rocks.
Personal fragrancing is an alluring way to express yourself. Mix 10-20 drops of essential oil in 1 tablespoon of jojoba oil. Apply to one or more of the pulse points--behind the ears, underside of the wrist, inner elbow, behind the knees, and on the backs of the ankles.
Using aromatics for meditation and spiritual focus has been used for thousands of years. Oshadhi has several oils well-suited for this purpose, such as frankincense, patchouli, sandalwood, and myrrh. Diffuse in the area or put a drop in your hands, rub them together and inhale the aroma.
