You probably have never heard before that there is such thing like cinnamon oil.
To be more specific, you probably know nothing about both types of cinnamon oil. In this powerful combination, the cinnamon has the role of a great spice and super-effective natural remedy.
The first type is in form of potent essential oil and it is derived through a complicated processing of leaves and bark.
The second type of cinnamon oil can be prepared very easily, where the production process requires extraction only.
In this article you will read about the detailed directions for the production process. All you need are two very important and fundamental ingredients:

Now the cinnamon oil is ready for usage. There is no exact number of cinnamon sticks for this recipe, so you can make sure that your jar is full. For example, 5-6 cinnamon sticks are required for ½ a liter of olive oil. If you use higher amount of cinnamon sticks, your oil will be better.
If you cannot find cinnamon sticks, you can use cinnamon powder instead in ratio of 1:5. In case you are using ½ a litter of oil, you will need 100 grams of cinnamon powder. Anyway, it is highly recommendable that you use cinnamon sticks, because of the fact that the long milling process eliminates many of the health benefits in cinnamon.
