Will be using it in a reed diffuser but yet to try it out. First sniff was promising, strong but not eye-watering.

How to use cinnamon oil while cooking
Essential oils, including cinnamon essential oil, should not be used for cooking or ingested unless they're specifically labelled as food-grade, which Nikura's products are not.
While the aroma of cinnamon essential oil might be enticing, these oils are highly concentrated and can cause harm if ingested.
Nikura's cinnamon essential oil is best used for its aromatic properties in a diffuser, or for other non-ingestible applications.
If you're looking to add a cinnamon flavour to your dishes, consider using ground cinnamon or a food-grade cinnamon extract instead.
