 7. Anti-Bacterial/Anti Microbial

anti microbs

Ceylon cinnamon leaf oil works as a great anti-bacterial and therefore, a great natural disinfectant. Cinnamon oil had the best antimicrobial effect when compared against several oils.  That is when used against escherichia coli , staphylococcus aureus , aspergillus oryzae , and penicillium digitatum according to one study.


Cinnamon bark oil is also a good anti bacterial. This study discovered that cinnamaldehyde levels of cinnamon bark oil was effective against listeria monocytogenes, salmonella typhimurium, and enterohemorrhagic escherichia coli.


Dilute the cinnamon oil with water as a disinfectant for kitchen countertops, sinks, your refrigerator, etc.. When there are young children around and you do not want harsh cancer causing chemicals use cinnamon oil. Cinnamon sticks works also an effective  anti bacterial.  However, you would need a lot of it to be effective.  For a mild disinfectant, to wash something like your face, feet, or hands, then a few cinnamon sticks boiled in hot water could be an idea.


8. Food Preservative

Cinnamon  can be used to good effect to inhibit bacterial growth. Some say this is the reason for the wide use of cinnamon in food preparation in Asian countries. In Sri Lanka, almost all dishes have a pinch of cinnamon. In addition to pleasing flavor, ceylon cinnamon in combination with spices like turmeric and chili may have been a way to preserve food before refrigeration.


One study used cinnamon oil coated paper as a preserving practice.  They found a 6% cinnamon oil solution was responsible for completely stopping mold in sliced bread packaging. This study also found cinnamon oil effective in creating insect resistant food packaging film. Cinnamon also came on top in this study, even against allspice and clove oil as very effective for making an edible food film.

About The Author

Dr. Bill in San Antonio, TX, holds six degrees in religious studies including a Ph.D. and a Th.D. He holds several other certificates and certifications. He has been what some call a professional student.

Raised mostly in rural south and south-central Texas, he is equally at ease on the ranch, in the woods, in meditation, or metaphysical pursuits.

He was the author of two books now out of print and several that he has not pushed for publication. He has written numerous articles in pier review journals during his time in traditional ministry.

He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions.

His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics.

He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today.

As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations.

Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes.

Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality.

Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective. This rare insight has been a boon to him and as he works to help you can be a boon to you
