Essential Oil Numerology
Cinnamon Bark comes from the bark of a tree which is a hard, rough but with a beautiful texture. If you look at the outside of the tree bark you will feel that the harshness of this bark could be unpleasant in a way … perhaps not nice or even evil. Consider the image of a villain – you always identify him with rough hardness … the powerful male energy. But when you touch a tree you only feel the softness of that tree’s energy. So Cinnamon Bark is a powerhouse of strength and defense. That is why you would take Cinnamon in a warm cup of tea because Cinnamon is that powerful outer layer of the tree, that’s the bark, that protects the soft inside.
Cinnamon Bark is a soldier with armour that defends off the piercing negative energies.
If you find yourself in a situation where you feel you need protection or where you feel you are vulnerable, weak or taken over; for example when you start getting a cold, you get that scratchiness and soreness in your throat, you would use Cinnamon to soothe it. Cinnamon is the protector in a spiritual sense where you are overwhelmed and you know that you can easily be taken advantage of.
Cinnamon Bark carries the essence of royalty. It is a nurturer and beautifies spaces with its uplifting and invigorating aroma. When you surround yourself with this kind of aroma you are protected by the walls of the castle and all the kings men! Consider the words “the Kingdom of God is within you”. Since the Kingdom of God is within, the castle walls will be the body right? Cinnamon therefor gives you a protective vibration so that the negative energy flying around in the universe is bounced off of you as if you are surrounded by a bubble of armour.
Cinnamon exemplifies the a-type personality that fights endlessly to conquer the evil ones, however, it perfects the balance between good and evil by protecting the castle but leaving the evil ones to still exist on the outside. We always need the evil ones to show us contrast so that we can identify what feels good and what doesn’t feel good.
If you have been working hard and feel like everything is caving in around you because you are completely exhausted – Cinnamon Bark is the oil for you. It is an up-lifter, protector and combats burnout.
