Cinnamaldehyde, the monoterpene aldehyde which is the primary chemical constituent of cinnamon bark essential oil, is commonly placed at the root system of plants as a fungicide.

The main chemical components of Cinnamon Bark essential oil are cinnamaldehyde and eugenol. These natural chemicals are powerful components that help to provide strong internal benefits. As highlighted by the doTERRA Science Blog, a recent study suggested that cinnamaldehyde acts to support healthy molecular function in the kidneys.*2  Another study also found that cinnamaldehyde activates an endogenous (natural, internal) antioxidant response in the colon cells, which is a natural means of maintaining healthy colon cells.*3  Eugenol also plays an active role in sustaining bodily health. Recent findings show that eugenol assists the body in maintaining normal gastrointestinal mobility even during times of stress, helping to keep the gastrointestinal tract functioning properly.*4 To learn more about these key chemical components found in Cinnamon Bark essential oil, make sure to visit the doTERRA Science Blog.
