One of the most recognisable aromas ever, Cinnamon ruled the trade routes of the world during ancient times. Its fragrance is warm and spicy and is reminiscent of early morning sweets. The essential oil is extracted from both the bark and the leaf of this well known culinary spice. Used in natural skin care for its spicy warm fragrance, its soothing effects, but is also known to be good for oily skin types and is mildly astringent (toning).
