Organic Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil
Organic Whole Leaf - Steam Distilled
We also offer cinnamon leaf essential oil in our Pure & Natural range. In the Pure & Natural section we discuss the uses in Aromatherapy of the essential oil of cinnamon leaf.
The majority of cinnamon leaf oil comes from Sri Lanka. Often before distillation the leaves are pre-macerated in sea water. The yield from 100 kilograms of leaves is 500 grams to maybe 1 kilogram and the essential oil distillation takes 8- 24 hours.
