If you are looking for a lighter cinnamon fragrance but with all the same benefits as the bark oil, cinnamon leaf oil (Cinnamomum) may be the one for you.

Apply it to your sore muscles and aching joints to give them a warming comfort, especially in the winter months. Use a few drops when cooking and have it spice up your meal while adding fiber and stimulating digestion.
Add a drop or two in a glass of purified water, and gargle with it. For people with dentures, simply make a solution of water, hydrogen peroxide, and the oil, then soak your dentures in it.
