Can I use Mazola oil to make cinnamon oil? And, cinnamon sticks?

Wonderfully simple and infinitely less expensive to make your own. Expect to pay anywhere from 7 dollars and up per ounce. Thanks very much for this! I found some other uses for this oil if anyone is interested:

  • Put 2 drops in empty veggie capsule for immune support.
  • Use 1-2 drops in an empty veggie capsule or diluted over the abdomen to support pancreatic health.
  • Place 1 drop Cinnamon essential oil in hot water or tea and drink slowly to soothe your throat.
  • Put 2–3 drops in a spray bottle for a quick and effective cleaning spray.
  • Place one drop on your toothbrush then add toothpaste.
  • Dilute with a carrier oil then apply to cold, achy joints during winter time.
  • Cinnamon oil is said to be an aphrodisiac for many. (I can't vouch
    for that one yet.) Try aromatic or topical usage on a regular basis
    (lower abdomen may be okay but AVOID genitals until highly diluted -
    ouch!).

Any suggestion with what to do with the used cinnamon sticks? Are they useful in the garden or is it best to just toss them?

Hi, I crush mine in a food processor and add them to soy candles, candle melts or in scented arrangements.

Yes, there are many different carry oils you can use.

You mention that you use it for cooking.... Can you be more specific about how. What types of recipes call for cinnamon oil? I can think of something like chocolate cakes, brownies, or even cinnamon flavored toothpicks, but can't really think of anything else. I'd love to know more ways to use cinnamon. Thanks for your post.

Hi, Anytime a recipe calls for olive oil, you can use the cinnamon oil in its place. I have used it for candies, waffles, pancakes, cookies, greasing a pan, but lately I've been mostly using it for beard balms I make. Thanks for the question!

If you are into essential oils at all, it is a GREAT oil to diffuse. Combine it with a few drops of clove and nutmeg oil in the diffuser for an amazing scent.

Hi, super simple and efficient idea! I probably would use a lighter oil like grapeseed or almond oil cause oilive oil is pretty heavy and kind of smelly too.

Thanks, I will try that!. I just bought sunflower oil for another project I am working on.
