Young Living issues a statement in response to their Cinnamon Bark essential oil failing third-party testing.
“The statement [from Young Living about the Cinnamon Bark essential oil adulteration] contains a lot of information, but zero documentation to back it up. […] Where are these test reports? Where is the documentation? There is none.” – From “An update on Young Living, the Cinnamon Bark Testing…”

Third party laboratory tests confirm Young Living Cinnamon Bark adulterated with synthetics.
“I contacted a testing laboratory located in Quebec, Canada that specialized in essential oils and natural health products called Phytochemia to obtain pricing and shipping information. To avoid any claims of tampering or sabotage, I logged into my Young Living Virtual Office and placed an order for a bottle of Cinnamon Bark. I had the shipping information changed to the laboratory in Quebec so that Young Living would ship the oil directly to them from the warehouse and there could be no claims of tampering with bottle caps, etc.
On March 3rd 2016 I received notice from the Lab that they received my sample of Cinnamon Bark that I had Young Living send to them and was advised that I would have the results within 2 weeks time.
March 18th I received an email from the lab again containing the GC/MS report from my sample I had tested. Nervously, I opened the attachment and scrolled to the bottom “conclusion” section…. “The sample has been adulterated with synthetic cinnamaldehyde, indicated by the presence of phenylpentadienal isomers. Synthetic linalool may also have been added.”-From “The Day Young Living Broke My Heart”
