An important ingredient in many natural perfumes. Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to man. It was valued in ancient Egypt not only as a medicine and for beverage flavoring but also as an embalming agent.
Cinnamomum verum originates from Sri Lanka. It is a tropical evergreen tree of the laurel family growing up to 15 m (45 feet) in the wild. The tree has a very thin smooth bark, with a light yellowish brown color and a highly fragrant odor. The spice from this tree has been more valuable than gold in its time.
