The fresh, spicy aroma of cinnamon leaf is more reminiscent of cloves than cinnamon. Energizing, focusing and revitalizing, cinnamon leaf enhances active reasoning when diffused into the air. (This powerful oil can be a skin irritant and should not be applied directly to the skin.)
This essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves and twigs.

Cinnamon leaf oil is one of my favourite scents. I use it in various unscented lotions, and in a carrier oil for after showers. I have been known to apply it straight to my clothing, but I was in a hurry one day and applied a couple of drops straight to my skin (you can get away with this with some EOs to rationalize my stupidity). I definitely would not recommend application of the undiluted product.
This oil has a very slight medicinal smell which appears to have dissipated after opening and using a few times. Keep in mind that cinnamon leaf has a clove like scent versus the bark version which smells more like the cooking spice.
It is competitively priced and smells divine. I would repurchase.
