May I ask why you want to use cinnamon powder? It will not leave a scent, but can be scratchy even if you do not use enough to be irritating.

In the EU there are rules about cinnamon oils. Cinnamon bark oil seems to be a complete no no in soap. Cinnamon leaf oil is allowed at usage rates of half to one percent. I use 7g of cinnamon leaf oil in 600g batch of oils (this works out at one percent after you have calculated how much additional sodium hydroxide is added and how much water is left after cure, which all adds up to a smidge over 700g). This is ample for a strong smelling soap, I wouldn't use any more even if I could. I can't remember what cinnamon bark oil smells like and if there is a big difference. Cinnamon leaf oil is sweet, earthy and spicy.
