    You're likely getting the burning sensation from the cinnamon. Cinnamon oil can cause severe skin reactions at even quite low concentrations. Try reblending without the cinnamon (just leave it out at first, you can always add some back in later) and see if that remedies the burning/redness issue.

    You're welcome. I had that problem early on with cinnamon, too. If you end up needing to reduce the cinnamon, you could try to replace some of its effect with a different oil, such as pimento berry oil (also known as allspice oil). Allspice absolute is also very very nice!

    Allspice does smell kind of like a mix of cinnamon/cardamom/clove/juniper/pepper but it does not have the irritating ingredient that is in cinnamon bark oil - cinnamic aldehyde. Another option you could look into is cinnamon leaf oil, which I believe either does not contain cinnamic aldehyde or has it at much lower levels.

    Hmmm...can't buy Everclear in the Philippines? That is also the case in my state of Washington and also in the two adjoining states of Oregon and Idaho. Apparently the Government is protecting ourselves from ourselves again (without being asked, as usual). I have to drive to Montana, where people are still free to do what the hell they like.
