Straight up cinnamon revisited


Recommended Posts

Ok, so my absolute favorite straight cinnamon for candles was from Tennessee, second was Steve’s at  the Candlemaker’s Store.  I tried burnin’ love cinnamon years ago from Bluegrass (now at RE/AH); although a nice scent I got wick clogging no matter which wicks, and when I cut back on the scent to solve the wick problem, it just wasn’t’t strong enough.  So, here’s what I’m looking for—no fruity/woodsy/citrus blends, not sweet like red hots (although that would be fine if it’s not too sweet), but a really good straight up cinnamon with excellent throw at a low enough percentage to avoid the wick clogging issue.  (I’m not asking for much, right?). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My fav cinnamon is Cinnamon Broom from FB. Its a red hot cinnamon type with out all the candy sweetness. Just super hot cinnamon. Reminds me of those cinnamon pine cones the local grocer's sell when you walk into the store and get a big whiff of strong cinnamon. It stays strong in wax too.

I always used NG cinnamon red hot. It was a best seller for me. It was exactly like a atomic fireball. Very little sweetness but a whole lot of nose burning hot cinnamon. Unfortunately after a not so fun night of drinking a bottle of aftershock to myself and paying a dear price I can no longer smell cinnamon without water rising in my throat. Which sucks cuz cinnamon was always my favorite gum/candy. 😂

Can we talk about cinnamon again?  Get some more suggestions discussed?  I'm using the same cinnamon that @*Dee* mentioned but I literally have zero experience with any other cinnamon so I'm not sure what's better out there.  It's pretty dang good, and not as candy-sweet as I at first thought it would be, but are there others even better?

 

I, obviously, did not have the fun night with cinnamon that Dee did, so I'm still OK having it around.  :D   And Fireball is probably my favorite thing in the world to mix with apple cider this time of year.

I've recently poured Cinnamon from Peak (now Keystone) and it's a good cinnamon. I also like cinnamon broom from FB a lot. Also, Cinnamon crunch cake from JS is really good and strong. I don't get bakery notes that much but it does have a lot of cinnamon. I also have cinnamon red hots from NG and I think cinnamon from Cajun and some from CS. I guess I need to compare!

Do any of you know some skin-safe cinnamons?  I just looked at the one I have and it's not.  :(  I want it to mix with some French vanilla and get something sweetly Christmasy.
