Guide - Cinnamon Leaf Madagascar EO
The Story :
The cinnamon tree is always green, with white to greenish-white cluster flowers and small purple berry fruits.
From the Latin canula (in the shape of a cylinder) derived from the classic Latin canna (reed). Its clustered flowers are white to greenish in colour and its fruits are small purple berries.
Cinnamon is one of the spices exported from the East and has been used for 4000 years. Renowned for its fortifying and purifying properties, its presence is mentioned in traditional Chinese pharmacopoeia books written 2800 years ago by Emperor Shen-Nung.
In the Bible, cinnamon is also found as a component of the “sacred balm”. The Egyptians already used it for embalming their dead, and it is very important in Tibetan medicine, which refers to it as shing tsa (heating active ingredient).
The Plant :
The cinnamon tree is a tropical tree 10 to 15 meters high. Its evergreen leaves are oblong and of a beautiful bright green, and have three characteristic parallel veins. We have carefully selected the best extracts of this tree in Madagascar, one of its original lands. Its oil is spicy and close to that of cloves.
