Cinnamon is a fairly common thing in today's society and most people would respond with "tastes great" or "love the smell" but there are many fantastic benefits that can come from its essential oil which is why it was a no brainer to use it in our Fired Up Beard Oil and Beard Balm.
Cinnamon Essential Oil which is also known as Cinnamomum Zeylanicum actually has two different varieties. One comes from the bark and the other from the leaf.
Cinnamon bark oil is darker in colour with a red-brown appearance and has that strong ground cinnamon/candy smell and is used in our Fired Up line.
Cinnamon leaf is more of a lighter yellow hue and has a spicy, musky plant like smell and is used in our Down To Earth Beard Product line.
Although they offer similar benefits today we will be talking specifically about the bark variety.
Cinnamon is thought of as one of the oldest spices and has seen use by ancient Asian healers as well as the Ancient Egyptians over the years. During those times it is said that Cinnamon was of great value and might have been worth as much as gold making it mostly accessible by the nobility and wealthy.
It turns out their fascination with Cinnamon wasn't unfounded as it has been found to indeed have many beneficial compounds for healing and well being.
Cinnamon Oil has high microbial properties and thus does a great job combating acne. It also helps clear up nicks and rashes.
Cinnamon Essential Oil is an antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral. It also contains compounds that largely increase circulation. Add this all together and you get healthy facial hair and a healthy face underneath. This all leads to faster growth with minimal to no itch or dandruff. Its the perfect addition to the many benefits already present in the base formula of our beard oil.
The aroma of Cinnamon E.O has calming properties that also help remove negative thoughts and reduce the effects of depression.
Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil helps to increase brain function and brain activity. Simply inhaling Cinnamon's awesome aroma will lead to increased attention span, a better memory, and better visual-motor response speeds. At the same time it will also help reduce anxiety and stress.
If you have a cold, flu, sore throat then Cinnamon oil can help relieve the symptoms. If you are congested then the aroma can clear a mucus filled nasal passage and prevent additional buildup.
Cinnamon Essential Oil is an natural aphrodisiac and can help with libido in both men and women. 'Nuff said.
The compounds in Cinnamon Bark Oil do an exceptional job of increasing circulation by expanding blood vessels. This can help to alleviate the discomfort of a headache.
As much as we like the smell, they don't, especially mosquitoes.
It just smells so good, which means you'll also smell amazing.
If you are looking for a sweet and spicy smell along the lines of Fireball Whisky then Primitive Outpost Fired Up Beard Oil is a must. The cinnamon bark E.O gets you a great smell along with a bunch of skin, hair, and health related benefits.
