Cinnamon Essential Oil

Warm freshly baked donuts sprinkled with Cinnamon and sugar? or do you smell Christmas baking?  If you’ve ever tried freshly grated cinnamon instead of the powdered variety, then you know that there is a difference in potency and flavour.

“It assists individuals in accepting their body and embracing their physical attractiveness. Cinnamon dispels fear of rejection and nurtures healthy sexuality. It rekindles sexual energies where there has been repression, trauma or abuse. It can also bring clarity to souls who struggle with their sexual identity. Cinnamon also assists individuals in relationships where insecurities are shown by jealousy or control. It encourages the soul to let go of control and allow others to be free. Cinnamon can nurture strong relationships based on mutual love and respect. Where there are other insecurities covered by pretense, facade and pride, Cinnamon invites individuals to be honest and vulnerable, thereby allowing true intimacy to emerge”.
