The smell of cinnamon might remind you of picking up a pumpkin spiced latte on a chilly fall day, or a warm apple pie baking in the oven during the holidays, but did you know that cinnamon can also help improve your skin?
Yes, you read that correctly: Cinnamon has healing properties that could help with your skin.
But no, we’re not talking about grabbing a shaker of ground-up cinnamon and sprinkling it all over your body. When it comes to the benefits of cinnamon on your skin, you’ll find that cinnamon essential oil is particularly potent.
In order to understand what cinnamon essential oil is, you first have to familiarize yourself with essential oils in general.
If you’re not already familiar, essential oils are highly potent oils that are infused with various plants. Because these oils are so pure and potent, each oil, depending on what is composed of, is said to have healing properties. For example, a pure lavender essential oil can help you sleep, rose helps with anxiety, chamomile supports the immune system, and peppermint helps with headaches.
With cinnamon essential oil, the carrier oil is infused with pure cinnamon and is said to be beneficial for stimulating circulation, reducing stress, relieving pain, fighting off infections, and improving digestion.
Sure, cinnamon essential oil has benefits that extend beyond skincare, but because we’re skincare enthusiasts, we want to show you specifically what cinnamon essential oil can do for your skin.
Cinnamon essential oil is particularly effective for stimulating blood flow.
How is this helpful for your skin, though? Well, first and foremost, because blood flow can help when trying to decrease the appearance of cellulite. In addition, the lymphatic system also becomes stimulated, which helps remove toxins. The stimulation of both blood and lymph helps eliminate fat lipids, shrinking them right at the source, giving you firmer-looking skin.
It’s also important to note that cinnamon essential oil is known for calming skin and reducing inflammation, which is key for targeting stubborn acne.
Where can I find cinnamon essential oil?
It’s important to note that as powerful as cinnamon essential oil can be, you should be cautious about where you get your cinnamon essential oil and how you use it.
To elaborate, ingesting cinnamon essential oil in large quantities has been linked to kidney and liver failure. In addition, it can also have a blood-thinning effect even when applied directly to the skin (i.e. your skin absorbs the oil and enters your bloodstream).
So does this mean you should be scared of cinnamon essential? Absolutely not. However, it does mean you should be cautious about the amount that you’re using.
