To get that great expiernece at home here’s an easy, step-by-step project to make your own cinnamon oil from our team…
Things you’ll need:
– Cinnamon sticks
– Pure vegetable oil, ideally olive oil
– A large amber glass bottle, several small glass bottles for storing the oil
1- Get a large glass jar, preferably amber or green glass. A wide mouth with straight side (like in the picture) is referable for ease in pouring and straining out the ingredients.
2- Fill the jar as tightly as you can with cinnamon sticks.
3- Pour the olive oil over the cinnamon sticks until they are covered with oil.
4- Leave the jar to stand in a warm spot, like a windowsill. Shake the jar daily to help release the cinnamon oils into the base oil.
5- After about three weeks, the oils in the cinnamon sticks will have been released into the oil, and you will have cinnamon oil. Strain with a cheesecloth or something similar, or just pull the cinnamon sticks out of the oil with your fingers. Bottle the oil in amber glass bottles, and store them in a cool, dark place.
Tips and warnings:
– The amber (or any other dark-colored) glass helps to keep your oil from going bad.
– Green glass is okay, however, blue glass is not.
– These instructions make diluted cinnamon oil, not essential oil.
– The fresher cinnamon sticks you use, the stronger and better the oil wil be.
– Do not forget your oil, and leave it in the sun longer than three weeks, or it will go rancid.
- Even though the oil is not essential oil, please still use caution, as essential cinnamon oil will burn unprotected skin.
