Spicy, woody, cinnamon, metallic.

Source

Cinnamon trees are native to Indonesia and India. Sri Lanka is the main producer. Cinnamon helps the digestion process and acts as an antiseptic. It helps feel physically courageous and bold.

Extraction Method

Only the dried leaves and young stems are steam-distilled. However all parts of the tree are odoriferous: the leaves (cloves) and the roots (camphor). The pit of the fruit yields an oil (cinnamon wax) used in scented candles, the bark yields cinnamon used in perfumes and foods. The cultivated trees are regularly pruned to a height of about 6 feet, making the collection of branches and leaves easier.

Use

Cinnamon leaf essence is used in traditional perfumery to alter spicy and oriental notes, as well as in soaps (it is cheaper than cinnamon essence). It is also used in small quantities in candies, bubble-gum, meat, condiments and ready-cooked dishes.

History
