Here are some more recipes for homemade pest/disease control using cinnamon.
1. Dust it on an open plant wound, i.e, broken leaf or stem, or area where you made a cut on the plant.
2. Mix it with cooking oil to form a paste. Pat it on the open plant wound.
3. Mix 2 tbsp. with 1 pint isopropyl alcohol. Shake well, cover it, and let stand overnight. Filter it through coffee filter. Use as an all purpose fungicide spray.
4. Combine 1 cup water with 1 cup of cinnamon/alcohol mix. Add 2 tsbp of dishwashing detergent. Use as a combination fungicide/insecticide spray.
NOTE: Spray in morning, not on hot sunny afternoon.
I have a tin in the greenhouse I use for all cuts on my plants. Love the stuff.
