The warm, exotic scent of cinnamon has been favored since antiquity. In China, it was used as incense, while the Egyptians used it in the embalming process and Hebrews used it in anointing rituals. Cinnamon was also one of the first spices, along with frankincense and myrrh. The curled quills of cinnamon were scarce and costly. Arab traders told stories of cinnamon sticks used to make the nests of the fabled cinnamologus bird. In Greece, the mythical phoenix rose from the ashes of a magical fire built of cinnamon, myrrh and spikenard.
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.
