About Cinnamon

Latin Name: Cinnamomum sp

In India, it is called Dalchini.

Cinnamon is obtained from a variety of species of the tree Cinnamomum. It is a spice that is obtained from the bark of the tree. When the bark is dried it curls into a tubular shape. The outer bark is discarded and only the inner bark is dried to form the tubular 'quills'. This is the cinnamon spice.

Though Cinnamon is cultivated all over Southeast Asia, the cinnamon tree is a native of Sri Lanka, the erstwhile Ceylon, and is got from the Cinnamomum verum tree. It is also called the Ceylon cinnamon or true cinnamon and is the best variety of cinnamon that is available.

Another variety of cinnamon is called 'cassia' and has a stronger taste and aroma than the Ceylon variety. Cassia variety is obtained from the Cinnamomum aromaticum tree and is more popular in the United States.

One of the oldest spices known to man, cinnamon finds reference in the Bible. Traditionally used to embalm the dead in Egypt, it was also used in medicine and as a flavouring.

So popular and much in demand it was that it was a heavily traded commodity between Europe and the Near East in those times.

This hub will reveal some facts about cinnamon.

Cinnamon Tree


Facts About Cinnamon

The cinnamon tree is an evergreen tree. Though native to Ceylon - present-day Sri Lanka - it grows well in other tropical countries like India, Brazil, Vietnam, Egypt, West Indies, Java etc. It grows well in other subtropical areas too but cannot bear freezing cold or even extended periods of cool weather.

The tree grows from 20 to 40 feet in height, having large oblong leaves, fragrant white flowers and a dark purple berry-like fruit with a single seed inside. The bark is a beautiful golden brown colour. The tree is grown from the seed.

It is also grown as an ornamental tree because of the beautiful orange-red bark and the golden brown tender leaves that sprout initially.

The tree remains productive for about 45-50 years.

Cinnamon Leaves


Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil


Cinnamon Essential Oil

Both the leaves and the bark provide cinnamon essential oil.

The essential oil from the bark is a golden coloured, hot, aromatic oil. The taste and smell are due to the presence of cinnamaldehyde which makes up about 60% of the oil. Cinnamaldehyde is an anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-pest in action. It is also anti-cancer in action.

The oil produced from the leaves contains the chemical compound eugenol in large amounts. Eugenol has antiseptic, anaesthetic properties and kills cancer cells.

Cinnamon leaf oil is safer, cheaper and less caustic than the oil obtained from the bark.

Benefits Of Cinnamon Oil

  • It is used as an insecticide as the leaf oil kills the mosquito larvae and also drives away insects like mosquitoes. You can add to lotion to repel them
  • In cooking, it is added to provide flavour.
  • It can be used as a room freshener. Mix it with water and spray.
  • Because of its anti-fungal, anti-microbial properties, it is used to control infections.

      Rajan, you covered all of the bases! This was a very thorough, enjoyable, and visibly appealing article! I love cinnamon, and sprinkle it over a lot of things, especially my breakfast. I also have a hot cinnamon drink, although I add lemon to it, to help freshen my breath and invigorate me first thing in the morning. Hopefully the lemon doesn't prevent cinnamon's usefulness. I like the Chai recipe. I don't think I have ever made it with black pepper in it. Interesting.

      I am sharing this.

I think I'll try your idea of combining it with honey, and see if that helps. My arthritis has really been flaring up in my hands lately, and I don't like to take medication for it, but prefer natural remedies. Voting this superb hub up, useful and interesting - and sharing!

      @ dahoglund - Cinnamon rolls have much added sugar so it is best to avoid if you are controlling intake of sugar. However there are many other uses that cinnamon can be put to.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and sharing.

      @ Girish - In Indian food we have been conditioned to add cinnamon daily. Of course as children we never knew its immense health benefits.

      The use of cinnamon sticks as a hand to mouth pacifier for those attempting to quit smoking cigarettes has proven to me personally, to be priceless...
