Cinnamon – Essential Oil
Cinnamon – Essential Oil
Size: 5 ml
Origin: Sri Lanka
Cinnamon is one of the most widely used spices in the world. In the past, the Egyptians used it to embalm their dead, as it was highly prized for its antiseptic and preserving properties. Not to mention that Ceylon cinnamon, the coveted spice considered as valuable as gold, symbolized power and wealth.1
In a study published in the Archives of Oral Biology 2 by researchers from the Faculty of Dentistry and the Oral Ecology Research Group of Laval University, it was shown that cinnamon essential oil produced spectacular results against one of the main bacteria responsible for bad breath, Solobacterium moorei. Another study also points in the same direction, stating that "evidence that cinnamon oil may be a promising substance to incorporate into oral hygiene products to control bad breath by inhibiting growth, killing biofilm and reducing H 2 S production by S. moorei." 3
Its fragrance and properties are equally appealing in aromatherapy and cooking.
