Cinnamon is amazing spice and super-efficient natural remedy. We bet that you have not heard of cinnamon oil at all. To be more precise, you probably know nothing about the two types of cinnamon oil.
The first one is a very strong essential oil which is made from leaves and bark of a plant throughvery complex procedure.
The second one you can make it by yourself of cinnamon oil quite easily, and the production process involves extraction only.
HERE IS THE RECIPE FOR CINNAMON OIL:
- cinnamon sticks
- pure olive oil (refined)
At first put your cinnamon sticks in a jar of your choice. Pour over some quality olive oil and make sure it covers the sticks completely, then out the lid on and keep at room temperature for about 3 weeks.
Shake the content every day. After 3 weeks, strain the oil, and cheesecloths work fine for this purpose.
Transfer the oil into a dark glass bottle,and your cinnamon oil is ready for use.
The number of cinnamon sticks is not fixed but the jar should be filled completely (at least 5-6 cinnamon sticks in half a liter of olive oil). The more cinnamon sticks you use, the better your oil shall be.
In cases you can’t find cinnamon sticks, you can use cinnamon powder in the ratio of 1: 5 in relation to oil (100 grams of cinnamon powder to half a liter of olive oil). However, we recommend cinnamon sticks because through the long process of milling a lot of its health properties are being lost.
