Cinnamyl aldehyde: 65%
Botanical Name: Cinnamomum cassia blume
Plant Part: Bark
Extraction Method: CO2 Extraction
Description: The cinnamon tree is an evergreen native to China and mainland South East Asia. It is an evergreen which reaches maturity at 10-12 years. It has shiny, leathery green leaves, and small, white flowers with oval shaped purple berries. The CO2 extraction method yields a greater number of aromatic compounds from the cinnamon than any other distillation process. In certain conditions at a low temperature Carbon Dioxide or CO2 can be pressurized to become a liquid. This liquid then acts as a solvent and is used to extract the oil from plants. After extraction is completed, the extraction vessel is brought back to normal temperature and the CO2 rapidly converts to gas leaving behind high quality oil that is free of solvents. CO2 extracted essential oils may have slight gelling or clouding when oils are cold. When the product is warmed slightly the oil will become a clear liquid again.
Color: Clear dark yellow to brown liquid.
Aromatic Scent: Cinnamon Bark CO2 Oil has a warm, spicy scent that is somewhere between clove and cinnamon. It is slightly herbaceous with pepper notes.
Strength of Aroma: Strong
Common Uses: With its pleasant scent, this essential oil has been considered to be a perfect additive to creams, lotions, and soaps and is especially popular in shaving soap and foot creams.
Important Note: Cinnamon Bark CO2 is clear at warmer temperatures (room temperature or just above). As the temperature drops it will become cloudy, which is normal. If the oil is reheated, it will become clear again.
History: The medicinal use of Cinnamon Bark was first recorded in Chinese formulations as early as 2700 B.C, and the ancient Egyptians used it for foot massage. It is still used in Ayurvedic medicine, and remains popular as an ingredient in mulled wines and cooking around the world.
Cautions: Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil can be irritating to the skin and mucous membranes - particularly in large doses. When using this oil, care must be taken because of the amount of active ingredients (compounds) it contains, and potential side effects from phototoxicity and sensitizing must be kept in mind when treating a client. It should always be used in dilution. Avoid use during pregnancy.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
