Using cinnamon essential oils in prepping

You've been eating the wrong kind of cinnamon all these years!
Americans consume cinnamon cassia from China, which is sold as
cinnamon, and is cheaper.

The real stuff is from Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, and is called
Cinnamomum zeylanicum. (A close cousin is Cinnamomum
verum.) Ceylon cinnamon is highly prized because it is sweeter
and milder than the rest. It's also four times the price and for
good reason. Health practitioners recommend Ceylon cinnamon
because it has less coumarin in it than the other kinds of
cinnamon. Coumarin acts like a blood thinner and is known to
cause liver damage in high dosages.

It's like you've been eating an imposter all these years. So now
you know that the best cinnamon essential oil is Ceylon, not
Cassia. If you're going to enjoy the health benefits of cinnamon
as a medicinal supplement, be sure to look for Ceylon cinnamon,
