Use Cinnamon Bark for emotional support!Cinnamon Bark is a wonderful tool for when you feel easily annoyed or when you feel the need to act a part or fake something. Often we suppress or play a role in new situations, during holiday times and/or around family. It’s not a coincidence that the fall and winter months have us gravitating towards warm aromas like Cinnamon Bark! You can use this oil to help you move out of a fake role and more into the true version of you. Simply sit in a quiet place, add a drop of Cinnamon Bark to your palms, rub in well, then cup your hands over your nose and breathe deeply. Repeat a positive affirmation, a personal truth or scripture. Sit and breathe until you feel something shift. You can repeat this process as often as necessary!
