About: Most often, the cooking spice called cinnamon that is found in the grocery store is not cinnamon at all but a close relation called cassia. This is why most people are surprised that the oil smells more like clove than the cinnamon smell they are accustomed to. Cinnamon leaf is easily found but cinnamon bark oil is available, yet, expensive. Cinnamon essential oil can irritate the skin and should be heavily diluted and is usually not used in products that remain on the skin, such as lotion.
