The expert’s advice:

External administration possible in dilution from 1%-10% maximum of CTEO in a vegetable oil such as Hazelnut, Apricot Kernel, etc.

Chinese Cinnamon oil is an exceptional anti-infectious agent, but it is difficult to use because of its high dermocausticity which restricts its use to knowledgeable and careful users.

Its extreme potency should be reserved for acute, severe and difficult cases, where other essential oils have already proven ineffective.
