- Cinnamomum cassia (Cinnamon) oil: First recorded in Egypt around 4,000BC, cinnamon is one of the oldest spices used by humans. Originally part of the embalming process, later used in perfumery and most commonly as a culinary spice, cinnamons rich history in medicine is not to be overlooked. Cinnamon has a rich and colorful history among Arab traders who invented wild tales of its origins to support its exorbitant price. One such tale was recorded in 5th century BC by the Greek historian Herodotus who claimed that the Cinnamon was collected by large birds who used the sticks to build their nests on top of mountains so dangerous that man could not climb them, large pieces of ox meat were left at the base of the cliffs to be collected by the birds. The weight of the meat in the nest would cause it to fall to the ground where the eager spice hunters would wait. Medicinally Cinnamon can be much easier to define as it benefits can be seen within days, the oil that we use decreases inflammation, Increases circulation, fights viruses, fights free radicals, relieves depression, stimulates the immune system, stimulates libido, fights parasites balances blood sugar and gives the body an energy boost that can be felt within the first few days of consumption.

The essential oils are gained through steam distillation and used as an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and disinfectant. In aromatherapy is it said to reduce headaches, migraines and motion sickness.

Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) oil: The Virgin Mary was said to have spread her cloak over a rosemary bush as she rested. The flowers then changed from white to blue, after this the shrub was referred to as the “Rose of Mary”. Considered sacred by the Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, and Hebrews for its ability to ward off evil spirits and protect all who were close to it from the plague. This second claim may have some validity considering its antiseptic action and high levels of antioxidants. Rosemary has high medicinal values as it keeps wounds clean and free of infection providing an atmosphere that promotes cell regeneration and reduces swelling and irritation.
