CINNAMON BARK (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), India.
Cinnamon is a very old spice native to Sri Lanka. When the trees are 6 – 8 years old the bark is removed in long strips and left to dry in the hot sun; the strips are rolled into ‘quills’ which are used in cooking, or steam distilled to produce Cinnamon Bark Oil – which is generally considered to be of a higher therapeutic quality than Cinnamon LEAF oil. Oil from the bark also has much more body and depth to its aroma than the harsher scent from the leaf.
Cinnamon oil has been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine as a tranquiliser, stomachic, and tonic, known also as being good for depression and a weak heart. It is an excellent inhalant for exhaustion, fainting, debility and weakness, and is a very strong antiseptic.
Oil from the bark is considered a dermal toxin and so should never be used on the skin.
