One of my favorite two oils during the Autumn and Winter months are Vanilla and Cinnamon. They distinctly create a sense of warmness while lifting energy levels. The two essential oils compliment each other by keeping our mood in alignment, especially during the Holidays, which most would consider a roller coaster of emotions.
About Cinnamon and Vanilla
Vanilla plant folia is a species of Vanilla orchid, which is an organic compound native to Mexico and one of the primary sources for vanilla flavoring, due to its high vanillin content. Common names are Flat-leaved Vanilla, Tahitian Vanilla (for the Pacific stock formerly thought to be a distinct species), and West Indian Vanilla (also used for the Pomona Vanilla, V. pompon). Often, it is simply referred to as "the vanilla". It was first scientifically named in 1808.
Cinnamomum cassia, called Chinese cassia or Chinese cinnamon, is an evergreen tree originating in southern China, and widely cultivated there and elsewhere in southern and eastern Asia (India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam). It is one of several species of Cinnamomum used primarily for their aromatic bark, which is used as a spice. In the United States, Chinese cassia is often sold under the culinary name of "cinnamon". The buds are also used as a spice, especially in India, and were once used by the ancient Romans.

The chemical compound vanillin) is primarily responsible for the characteristic flavor and smell of vanilla. Another minor component of vanilla essential oil is piperonal. Piperonal and other substances affect the odor of natural vanillance. While vanillas and cinnamon air fresheners are widely available in the marketplace, finding something that is all natural isn’t that simple and finding a blend of the two... nearly impossible! The benefits of cinnamon are mainly the pleasures of the aroma. In color it is yellow tinged with a touch of gold Vanilla, the aroma is sharp, warm, and complex, with vanilla up front; and then tangy sweet fruity, spices.
As harvested, the green seed pods that contain Vanillin is also used in the fragrance industry, in perfumes, and to mask unpleasant odors or tastes in livestock and cleaning products.
You might know Vanilla from your favorite candle or your car air freshener. Most would think of Cinnamon sticks or cinnamon roles. The power of Vanilla and Cinnamon as an air freshener yields to the synergy that these two powerful oils create, leaving a car, office or home with a lingering and inviting warmth not found with many other essential oil combinations.
