It is finally FALL and guess what that means in our house… Lots of yummy cooking and delicious smells and full bellies! One of my favorite essential oils to cook with throughout the Fall season is Cinnamon Bark Vitality—which is FREE during the month of October when you place an order of at least 100PV.
Cinnamon Bark Vitality has a unique, delicious, spicy flavor and did you know that Cinnamon Bark Vitality can not only help maintain a healthy immune system, but also supports the digestive system. This actually makes a lot of sense because, as we discussed last month, 70-80% of our immune system lives in our digestive tract.
Cinnamon Bark Vitality is very high in the naturally occurring chemical constituent Trans-Cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamaldehyde is a flavonoid and is what gives cinnamon it’s flavor and odor. Cinnamon is known to be loaded with antioxidants and Cinnamon Bark essential oil is steam distilled from the outer parts of the bark of the cinnamon tree.
There are so many ways I love to use Cinnamon Bark Vitality in the kitchen: a tiny drop in mashed sweet potatoes, a little in my pumpkin pie recipe, a wonderful addition to Einkorn Pumpkin Bread, and finally, it is wonderful to add a drop to roasted pumpkin seeds—we will share this recipe later in the month.
As a quick reminder, because essential oils are 100-10,000 time more potent than herbs, I would always start small when cooking with essential oils; you don’t want to overpower your recipe. I love to use a toothpick. I simply dip it in the orifice of the essential oil, and then I am able to start small and grow the flavor of the dish little by little.
There is no wrong way to cook or bake with Cinnamon Bark Vitality and I am excited for you to experience this wonderful essential oil in your kitchen this Fall!

Two awesome diffusers to spread the joy of oils around the house. This pairs the FLASH Diffuser promo with a PSK and it is a home run! Flash Diffuser promo goes from September 20-22. Don’t wait. Act now! I
If you enroll between September 20-22, and enroll in Essential Rewards, I will personally give a couple of my favorite diffusing oils to anyone investing in a new diffuser during the FLASH diffuser promo.
PanAway, Deep Relief, and Cool Azul, which oil should you use and when? First off, there is no exact answer for everyone, each person has a different chemical make-up and each oil reacts differently on every person. Just as some people prefer lavender essential oil to create a soothing and calming environment before bed, others prefer Peace and Calming, and some prefer Cedarwood. Learning to use essential oils is a journey, so try experimenting with different oils to find your best fit! Below is a side by side comparison of these three oils so you can learn the difference and better understand which oil you may prefer to use for specific situations. All three oils are great to apply before and after activity and for a cooling sensation on the skin.
Comes pre-diluted in a roller-ball, making it easy to take on the go, throw in gym bag, and easy to apply.
Smell: Deep Relief does not have as strong of a smell as Panaway or Cool Azul because it is pre-diluted. Some people prefer the softer aroma. The invigorating, minty smells stand out the most!
Did you know? Menthol is responsible for the cooling sensation Peppermint causes when it is inhaled or applied to the skin!
For more information on Peppermint, Lemon, and Copiaba, Check out Young Living University in the Virtual Office! Under each oil is product micro-course!
All the oils in PanAway are found in Deep Relief, however, PanAway is NOT pre-diluted, making this a very potent and powerful essential oil. PanAway has a child proof cap because of the high amount of wintergreen essential oil. Wintergreen is high in a constituent called Methyl salicylate. Methyl salicylate is used as the active ingredient in many sports creams, but usually from a synthetic source.
Smell: PanAway has a refreshing, stimulating and potent smell. The wintergreen aroma stands out more than it does in Deep Relief or Cool Azul. Some people say PanAway smells like rootbeer, this is because wintergreen is actually used to make rootbeer!
Did you know? Eugenol, the main constituent in clove, has been heavily researched for its beneficial properties.

Is not pre-diluted and features two Young Living exclusive oils: Dorado Azul and Plectranthus Oregano. Young Living is the only company that sells these two oils, and they are homegrown on Young Living farms! Cool Azul also has a child-proof cap because of the high amount of wintergreen essential oil.
Smell: Cool Azul smells much sweeter than Deep Relief and PanAway. I actually like this aroma the best because it is light, but yet uplifting, invigorating and sweet.
Did you know? Grown on Young Living’s Ecuador farm, Plectranthus Oregano has similar constituents and
properties as Oregano, but it is actually in the mint (Lamiaceae) family. It was named by D. Gary Young because of its oregano-like aroma.
