What Spice Has A Long History of Culinary Use?

This week is the perfect time to celebrate all the gifts the earth has given us! One great gift from the earth is dōTERRA’s Cinnamon Bark essential oil. Cinnamon has a long history of culinary uses like, adding spice to desserts, entrees, and even hot drinks. That’s why it’s one of my favorite essential oils for the holiday season. (I probably say that with every essential oil)

Traditional Chinese Medicine uses Cinnamon (known as guÌ zhì) in about 10 patent formulas. This means that not only is cinnamon a great essential oil, but this herb has been use for thousands of years to improve immunity, head tension, menstrual support, increase sweeting, joint pain and digestion when used with other Chinese herbs.

What is Chinese medicine and how can it help me? I share with you in this short video what spleen qi deficiency is and how essential oils can help.


Cinnamon Bark is well known for its use as a spice. Did you know when taken internally, supports healthy metabolic function and helps maintain a healthy immune system, especially when seasonal threats are high. Place 1 drop of dōTerra Cinnamon essential oil in hot water or tea and drink slowly to soothe your irritated throat or add one drop to two ounces of water and gargle for an effective mouth rinse before heading to bed.

Below are some wonderful and creative ways to include dōTERRA Cinnamon Bark in your favorite holiday dishes:
