Cinnamon Essential Oil or Cinnamomum zeylanicum is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves of the cinnamon stalk.
This species of cinnamon is the oldest of all, it is already mentioned in the treaty of Emperor Shen Nung (2700 BC) under the name of Kwei. The ancient Egyptians used it against epidemics and in the embalming of their mummies. In the Bible it is mentioned that God ordered Moses to take with him to Egypt: myrrh, cinnamon and olive oil. Arab merchants sold it to the Greeks and Romans trying to keep its place of origin a secret. This caused other routes to be sought and the route to India and Ceylon via the Cape was discovered, made in the 16th century by the Portuguese. It has been traditionally used in the East against the flu, digestive, rheumatic, renal, menstrual problems and as a general stimulant.
