From gourmetsleuth web site

1 stick of true cinnamon

= 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

= 1/8th teaspoon cinnamon extract

From the Cook's Thesaurus

One part flavoring oil is roughly equivalent to four parts extract, but this may vary according to the products used. To be safe, begin by substituting 1/8 teaspoon of oil per teaspoon of extract, then add more drops of oil until you're satisfied with the flavor.

So 1 tsp of cinnamon extract

= 1/8 tsp of cinnamon oil

= 4 tsp ground cinnamon

= 8 sticks of true cinnamon
