Cinnamon Protector Oil is used by acupuncturists, massage therapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, and energy body workers to deepen treatment and for patients to experience immediate relief.

Cinnamon Protector Oil is based on a traditional formula called Po Sum On or ‘Protect the Heart’s Peace’ oil. Our formula is slightly modified and made with plant infusions and essential oils. It is used to alleviate muscle tension, achy joints, sinus and lymph congestion, fatigued feet and legs, and to clear and protect from heavy stagnant energy or exposure to cold and flu.  It is handcrafted here in the USA with loving kindness and potent plant medicine.  Not for use under 12 years old.

  1. Susan

    This oil is amazing. I use it as directed on the cool paper layout – helps warm and energize. I have put on sore muscles and the deep penetrating warmth is pure love. I am about to buy this as gifts for the whole family!

  2. Jesse

    I love this stuff! Not only does it smell amazing, but the oils continue to penetrate muscles and work on the affected area long after being applied. Works wonders on sinus congestion and as an aromatherapy tool as well. Grateful for this product.

  3. Nicole

    I have suffered with chronic neck and shoulder tension for years & this product has made a tremendous difference in helping ease the discomfort. I put it on at night and I wake up feeling much less tense & uncomfortable. Great product, highly recommend & really nice packaging !

  4. Lucy

    I have been using this for my TMJ pain, and it has helped me tremendously ! Also for sore swollen glands around my neck area. It went to work faster than any other essential oil product that I have ever tried . Most impressive !

  5. Surfs Up Essentials

    I was looking for something new that was uplifting and I found it! This oil i take everywhere, I use it during meditation, after exercise, and as hand sanitizer. I love the story that comes with the packaging. If you looking for a new oil with many uses this will be your new favorite oil, I highly recommend it.

  6. Sarah

    The second I opened the package, the aroma was intense and so lovely. I work on my computer for 8 + hours a day. Just before bed, I’ve been rubbing this on my shoulders and neck. It does wonders for that tightness and tension. Right now I’m recovering from strep throat and have been using it on my temples to releive the headaches. It also seems to help clear my nasal passage (it’s Spring and a load of pollan is n the Norcal air).

    Side note: I used a tiny drop on my son (6 years old) when he got a mosquito bite. The irritation went away instantly.

    This oil is like magic and I only need one or two drops to make a huge impact.

  7. Andrea

    I was introduced to cinnamon oil a few weeks ago. I’ve been using it for sore, achy muscles and it’s been great! The quality is great, happy customer!

  8. Ayke

  9. Angie

    I loved everything about this oil. I could smell both the cinnamon and a peppermint scent in it. We were coming down with sinus issues and I was SO glad I had it on hand to give it a try! I diffused a few drops and then I added a couple drops in my lotion. Within 30 minutes I had sinus pain relief and felt tons better! I hope to always have some on hand!!

  10. Jessica

    Love the smell of this oil and how it eases muscle tension and pain. I’ve used it primarily on neck,shoulders, and back, but have also tried it on my knee and it’s warming effect brings almost immediate relief!

  11. Michelle

    This oil is amazing. I use it for tension headaches and it makes a great shoulder message oil. The smell is very pleasant and calming. Also helps with my children’s stuffy noses during these cold months.

  12. Brittany

    Really love this product. I have incredible tension in my neck and back as well as tender feet from being on them all day. This product truly helped relieve a great deal of the achy-ness. The aroma of the oil is very calming as well. Very soothing all around and recommend it to anyone experiencing similar pain and soreness!

  16. Anne

    It’s a nice addition to my regimen after a run. It does the trick with bug bites and helping my soreness dull out. I enjoy using this product!

  17. Stacy

    Artemis Therapeutics sent me their Cinnamon Protection Oil to try out and I’m so glad that I did! I am in love with this product! I’ve been using essential oils and essential oil blends for years and this is one of my new favorite products. Out of all the uses, my favorite is for clearing the sinuses and increasing alertness (reducing brain fog). This is also a nice compliment to my yoga practice. I massage a small amount on my neck and shoulders before my practice and can feel a slight warming sensation. The scent is pleasant without being overly strong. The product arrived in beautiful packaging in a burlap pouch. The dropper bottle is perfect for dispensing the appropriate amount.

  18. Magesh

    This is one of the best oils we have ever used! This one is a big hit in our family. My husband does Martial arts and also has a hectic work day pretty much every day. This oil does magic to relieve his joint/knee/muscle pain.
    Thank you so much!

  19. mylovelykids

    WE have been using this oil for more than a year now and would definitely recommend it to anyone who has any joint/muscle pain. Although its a bit pricey, its worth every drop. My husband does Karate and sometimes get severe leg pain and joint pain. This oil rejuvenates and relieves from the pain right away. The aroma is a bit strong so few drops are enough! Thank you so much for such an awesome product!

  20. Laura

    Let’s talk Oils. Since the surgery it’s been very hard for me no to take medication with NSAIDS, I was a big fan of Advil and all kinds of anti-inflammatories, starting to workout again, specially with all the weights I’ve been doing leave me sore and achy most times. I’ve been trying @artemistherapeutics Cinnamon Protector Oil for about 2 weeks now and I LOVE it. I rub it on knees before and after my workouts. I also rub it in my shoulders, neck, and shoulder blades and the relief is so amazing. Headaches, bye bye, and the best part is… it’s not oily at all! After I rub it my hands are dry and not greasy at all, which I love. It has a strong scent but since it’s cinnamon I love it.

  21. Lily

  22. Laurel

  23. Gabriella
