Deep Sleep

Deep Sleep is an amazing product, it works for me. Such an amazing smell and sends you off to sleep in no time. Highly recommend this product. Thank you MoonHaven, my order arrived promptly and the soap samples were a treat.

Lovely product and great service

I bought this little box of products at 36 weeks pregnant in anticipation of my labour. To my astonishment the package arrived less than 24 hours after me ordering it online and it was a good job as I ordered on the Monday, received on the Tuesday and went into unnexpected early labour on the Wednesday.
I used the oils throughout my labour and believe they comforted and calmed me while my husband used the massage oil on my back during contractions.
Every midwife who entered the room commented on how beautiful it smelt.
Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to try the perenium cream but that’s for next time!

Can't live without Achy Breaky Rub

I suffer from chronic headaches and migraines, plus general chronic pain - especially back, legs and feet after a long day at work. This product provides essential and importantly non pharmacological relief from chronic pain. I use it every day and often share it with my work colleagues and family - the smell is amazing and the affects even better - instant relief. It's like owning my very own magic healing balm!

I absolutely love this place!

Whenever I am down south I always stop in and have a look around. The staff are so friendly and very helpful. Being based in Perth its great to know that I can order from them any time and it within a blink on an eye is here. These products are so great and they really do help. I suffer with bad anxiety and have been using the "relax" pulse point has help so much with that, especially when on the go.

Fabulous works magic on headaches

Love Breathe Easy and it’s now an essential in my handbag. Great for tension headaches, I will be back for more

Pure, Unadulterated Essential Oils

Cinnamon Bark Oil

Regular price $19.95 Sale

I remember the rich spicy aromas that wafted through my grandmothers kitchen when she made the annual Christmas cake in late November - no last minute Christmas cake baking for her!

I loved to watch her combine the various spices and grind them up on her chopping board - I don't think she ever owned a mortar and pestle.

As she ground away, smushing the spices into one glorious, aromatic mess the scent of cinnamon tended to dominate the air.

To this day I cannot smell cinnamon oil or spice without being transported back  to her kitchen and helping her bake.

I thought that nothing evokes the scent of Christmas better than wonderful Cinnamon Bark oil as opposed to Cinnamon Leaf oil.

You see, there are two Cinnamon oils available on the  essential oil market.

Cinnamon Leaf and Cinnamon Bark.

At Moon Haven we use both.

Cinnamon Leaf Oil does not contain cinnamaldehyde and so is less of a skin irritant than the bark oil, yet it is the  Cinnamaldehyde which gives Cinnamon Bark Oil its incredible spicy scent.

Cinnamaldehyde is also largely responsible for the antibacterial properties of Cinnamon oil

So at Moon Haven we use Cinnamon Leaf when we are formulating something to be used on the skin and Cinnamon Bark oil when we want the cinnamony scent,

Cinnamon Bark Oil is best for when we want to utilise its strong antibacterial properties or require a definite scent of spice.  Of course it is always used in a very diluted form when used anywhere near the body

Cinnamon Bark Oil Monograph

Botanical Name: Cinnamomum zeylancium

Method of Extraction: Steam Distilled

Part Typically Used: Bark

Colour: Golden Yellow/Brown

Consistency: Slightly oily feeling

Perfumery Note: Middle

Strength of Aroma: Strong

Aroma: Much richer in aroma than ground cinnamon. (Ground cinnamon and cinnamon sticks is usually not cinnamon at all but is usually cassia)

Cinnamon Essential Oil is peppery, earthy, spicy, bright yet slightly woodsy.

Oil distilled from the bark of the cinnamon tree is aromatically preferred over the oil distilled from the leaves for its true cinnamon scent. Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil, however, tends to be much more costly and is considered as a skin irritant -so I advise caution for all skin applications and only use it in highly diluted forms.

Blends Well With: Frankincense, Sweet Orange, Sandalwood, Cypress, Rosemary
Common Uses:  Constipation, exhaustion, flatulence, lice, low blood pressure, rheumatism, scabies, stress - an excellent antibacterial.
Cautions: Due to the high levels of Cinnamaldehyde (which can be a skin irritant) in Cinnamon Bark, it is recommend that Cinnamon Bark Oil is used at  dilutions of 0.7% or less in any formulation.

For example it is recommended that you do not use any more than 1 drop in 7 ml of base or carrier oil when applied to the skin.
There is no limit on the rate of use when used aromatically.... but as it is a 'hot' oil it is recommended that you use some caution when sniffing undiluted cinnamon oil as it could irritate your delicate nose hairs!
