Try this beautiful home made Ceylon Cinnamon Oil disinfectant for your home, car and work place. The perfect alternative to highly toxic commercial chemical spray that may affect your health. Effective against 26 strains of anti-biotic resistant bacteria. If you have children or pets this is a major issue for many parents. Many of those chemicals cause chemical corrosion even to the bottle they come in. So imagine what it does to all the living breathing people in the house. Time to learn how to make a home made All-Natural Disinfectant Spray with Cinnamon Oil.
Both Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil and Ceylon Cinnamon Leaf Oil have powerful anti-bacterial properties. If you look at the chart on this page you will see that the Bark Oil is stronger and smells better. But the leaf Oil is much cheaper and therefore more cost effective for everyday disinfecting.
Alternatively you can mix the two oils and create an even more powerful disinfectant. The best thing about Cinnamon Oil is that it works against against most anti-biotic resistant bacteria.

This is a dilution ratio of 1.% Cinnamon Oil to 99% Water approximately. You can go as low as 1% and as high as 2% in the dilution ratio. However remember adding more Cinnamon Oil will irritate your skin. The beauty of Cinnamon Oil is you need very little.
Store the cleaner in cool a dark place. Keep away from heat and the sun to prolong shelf life.
Shake well prior to each use as the oil will accumulate at the bottom.
Use a micro fiber cloth to wipe all surfaces. Tests show that cleaning surfaces with micro fiber cloths or mops eliminates 99% of bacteria, while conventional cleaning tools reduce bacteria by only 33%. And with their superior ability to “grab” dust and debris, cleaning is faster and easier.
Safe to use on tile, metal and counter top surfaces.
Color test to see if it works on wood and vinyl surfaces without damaging. We have not yet seen any adverse effects of using diluted Cinnamon leaf oil to clean wood or vinyl surfaces.
Do not exceed this ratio of 2% as it may cause skin irritation. In either case wear gloves when using any disinfectant including this natural cinnamon disinfectant.
May cause a slight skin irritation, very similar to when using alcohol based cleaners. Take precautions and test in a small area before use. It should present no problems to most people.
