Cinnamon: The Oil of Sexual Harmony

Cinnamon is not only supportive of a healthy immune system but also beneficial in supporting healthy relationships, healthy boundaries and healthy sexuality as well. It supports the reproductive system and helps heal sexual issues. Cinnamon is related to the lower solar plexus and sacral chakras and can encourage self-acceptance or self-confidence, sexual expression and the clearing of trapped emotions from past trauma. It also correlates to our sense of safety and security, which when out of balance, can leave a person feeling jealous, insecure, controlling, or unable to be vulnerable in relationships. Cinnamon will help individuals let go of control and jealousy encouraging instead feelings of nurture in relationships with mutual love and respect for one another.

It is good for those of us who really want to look at and change their belief systems or their old patterns especially old sexual energies where there has been repression, trauma or abuse. This will help those who need to release memories of physical or emotional abuse and bring clarity to the souls who struggled with their sexual identity as a result. Cinnamon invites individuals to be honest and vulnerable thereby allowing true intimacy in relationships to emerge.

Cinnamon is also said to attract wealth (hot and spicy does that!) by transforming our core beliefs of limitation into abundance. It will release anger, frustration and abuse that we have buried that deal with our dependence and addictions.

Usage Tips

Always dilute. This oil is not generally suitable for children under 6 and should be diluted more for children over 6. Repeated or undiluted use can cause skin sensitization. Diffuse with caution as well, since this potent oil may irritate nasal passages (don’t inale directly from bottle or diffuser). Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use and use on the feet when possible. Excessive use of any oil can lead to skin sensitization. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose. Not all oils are created equal, so test brands carefully, and never use an oil in a way not recommended by its maker.
