Cinnamomum zeylanicum is a native of Sri Lanka and south India. It is a moderately sized, evergreen tree up to 16 meters tall and 60 cm diameter at breast height. The dried inner bark of the partially matured shoot is the true cinnamon of commerce. Under cultivation, the shoots are coppiced every two years at ground level, which results in the formation of more dense bushes. The new shoots are first stripped with a special curved knife. The cleaned stems are then rubbed with brass rods to loosen the inner bark, which is then carefully removed from the stems by making two longitudinal slits on opposite sides. The inner bark curls naturally into quills which comprises numerous strips packed together and are finally dried in subtle sunlight.

Cinnamon Bark essential oil is a top-notch antiseptic used to eliminate decay-causing bacteria, fungi and viruses that spread infection. Its antiseptic properties can be used to prevent urinary tract infections, yeast infections and even athlete's foot. Traditional Chinese medicine values Cinnamon Bark as a "warming" herb due to its stimulating effect on various areas of the body. It can be used to relieve abdominal spasms, assist digestion, improve circulation and prevent congestion.

Dry and slightly tenacious, the aroma of Cinnamon Bark essential oil has spicy and fiery top notes complemented by sweet and oriental undertones.

The fortifying and reviving fragrance of Cinnamon Bark oil helps drive away melancholia and depression. It is recommended for general nervous debility and can be used to warm both the body and mind during the winter especially for the elderly. The spicy aroma of Cinnamon Bark inspires a zest for life that dispels lethargy and lack of vitality.

This bark oil is great! The fragrance is very warm and spicy, and it smells really delicious too. It is perfect for the winter. I make my candles with it and the fragrance lingers in the room for whole day. The more I use this oil, the more I've come to love it. I highly recommend this oil if you love the sweet and spicy taste of cinnamon bark.
