Observations and Anecdotal Information

Amazon cinnamon essential oil’s main known healing properties include the ability to lower blood sugar.   Almost immediately when a drop of diluted oil is placed in the mouth, high blood sugar levels recede.

It carries a very high level of humulene, a constituent that helps balance the body’s internal reaction to injury and irritation.  This means it can reduce swelling, pain, and inflammation.

Amazon cinnamon also helps the body digest fats, useful in the process of losing weight.

Amazon cinnamon has been traditionally used to support proper digestion, relieve digestive upsets, gas, bloating, and heartburn.

It has also been used as a disinfectant, having an especially beneficial effect on skin funguses, and foot fungus in particular.

It is a great support for healing candida, and can be taken internally for that purpose.  It is effective against a number of parasites, both in the blood and in the digestive tract.

This essential oil has only a small percentage of cinnamaldehyde (the skin sensitizing constituent in cinnamon oil), making it much less sensitizing than either cassia or cinnamon essential oils.

Even so, it is still possible for children and very sensitive individuals to have a reaction to it, so is best to test it on the inside of the elbow if in doubt.

When applied to the skin, Amazon cinnamon essential oil relieves itching and rashes.


  • Generally recognized as sage at normal dosages.
  • Ocotea cybarum essential oil, a different species of Ocotea, should not be used internally; this oil is very different and not interchangeable with Amazon cinnamon essential oil.
