Why We Love Cinnamon!

WHY WE LOVE CINNAMON!

Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) also called Ceylon cinnamon, is a bushy evergreen tree of the laurel family (Lauraceae) and the spice derived from its bark. The spice consists of the dried inner bark and has a delicately fragrant aroma and a warm sweet flavor. It is the ultimate Christmas spice. It has a rich history of uses in cuisine and perfumery. It has an amazing warmth and sweetness. Even Cleopatra used a cinnamon-oil based perfume that was said to win hearts by its delightfully warm scent…

Throughout history it has become incorporated into scented candles, potpourri and jams. With an almost universally irresistible aroma, cinnamon is one of the most popular spices in the world. It’s not hard to see why!

BENEFITS

Besides being a delicious spice, cinnamon oil is also popular for its therapeutic use in aromatherapy. The oil contains a variety of antiseptic, antimicrobial, antioxidant and anesthetic healing properties.
The primary compound in cinnamon is cinnamic acid (cinnamic aldehyde or cinnamaldehyde).
Many believe that the warm and spicy scent of this essential oil is good for mental as well as physical health. Inhaling its delightful fragrance has a calming and soothing effect while it provides feelings of warmth and comfort. It can help alleviate feelings of depression and calm the mind. When relaxing with a comforting cup of herbal tea, add some cinnamon powder to unleash its flavor.
