I scent. Warm and very festive

Pure delight

I purchased the cinnamon pure essential oil so I could make a Christmas blend of seasonal aromas. I wasn't disappointed. The notes of cinnamon are wonderful and aromatic and a true delight even when using a miniscule amount, unlike some others that I've tried which are quite sickly.


This does smell like cinnamon but it has an underlying medicine smell that makes it quite pungent. I put some on my wrist to see if it would settle and it did but the pungent side of it is still quite overwhelming. My 10 year old daughter's initial reaction was it smelled nasty, lol though on my wrist she said it smelled much better. I don't think it's that bad though it could be better so I'm deducting one star on that basis.

Bit disappointing

Had high hopes. Smells quite weak , despite often adding 15 drops in the diffuser. Combined with orange for a Christmas blend. Average.

Smells more like cloves

I expected this oil to have a rich warm aroma but it just smells like cloves and like two of the other oils I purchased, it has a slightly rancid scent. Not impressed

from the leaf, not the bark

I was REALLY disapointed to have purchased this and found out that it's from the leaf and not the bark. I had wanted it for medicinal treatment and got the wrong stuff. Waste of money.
