Cinnamon candles are generally scented with cinnamon essential oil, which is usually extracted from the bark of cinnamon trees. Cinnamon oil is believed to have a number of medicinal uses, many of which require the oil to be eaten or applied topically. The oil is, however, considered a beneficial aromatherapy treatment, and cinnamon candles are one way to release the scent of cinnamon into one's surroundings. The benefits of cinnamon candles are said to include stress relief and relaxation, increased alertness, improved memory, and increased mental focus. Cinnamon candles are said to help ease headache pain and may also help enhance visual focus.

Research performed at Wheeling Jesuit University suggests that the aroma of cinnamon can help increase cognitive activity. Subjects were found to enjoy increased cognitive function after smelling the aroma of cinnamon. The aroma of cinnamon was found to have improved subjects' memories and accelerated their motor responses. The scent was also found to help subjects concentrate more efficiently.

Researchers also believe that the aroma of cinnamon oil can help reverse memory loss and reduce tension due to stress. Candles scented with cinnamon may therefore be helpful for anyone who needs to increase mental alertness and relieve mental fatigue. The scent of cinnamon may help students and workers to focus more effectively on their tasks.

Many believe that burning cinnamon candles can help ease the pain of headaches. These scented candles can be a safe and effective alternative for the relief of mild headache pain. The aroma of cinnamon may also help to treat upset stomach and vomiting.

Cinnamon candles' headache-relieving attributes may be partially due to cinnamon's ability to ease stress and tension. Stress and muscle tension are responsible for many minor headaches.

Essential oil of cinnamon is also believed to have a number of health benefits when eaten or applied to the skin. Many people apply the oil topically to ease the pain of arthritis, muscle stiffness, and cramps, especially cramps associated with menstruation. When eaten, cinnamon oil, or ground cinnamon, is said to help control blood pressure and blood sugar. Its regular consumption may help to manage the symptoms of diabetes. Cinnamon oil's antibacterial properties are said to make it useful as a mouthwash, diluted with water, or as a spot treatment for acne blemishes.

@fBoyle-- I agree with you. Cinnamon candles remind me of Christmas time and family. I guess that's why many people are fond of cinnamon candles. I can also vouch that cinnamon candles help with nausea. I used them all the time when I was pregnant for morning sickness.

I had no idea that cinnamon candles help with concentration. That's cool and also weird because I have been having issues with concentration lately. The other day I was at a candle store at the mall, basically sniffing through all the candles. The cinnamon candles literally attracted me. I did not like any of the other scents available. I ended up buying five cinnamon candles and I have been burning them daily!

I don't know about all of the benefits of cinnamon candles. I just know that when I burn cinnamon candles, I'm reminded of home. I feel like I'm at my parents' house and it's very comforting. If I'm in tension or stress, it disappears completely. I actually feel safe.

I think it's because my mother used to bake a lot with cinnamon when I was growing up. So cinnamon reminds me of my mother's cinnamon rolls, apple cobbler and coffee cake. The scent of cinnamon might remind someone else of other things. So the effect of the scent probably depends on the individual and their memories with cinnamon.
