Cinnamon is native to Indonesia. Used in aromatherapy for many years, cinnamon invigorates, refreshes and defies feelings of depression and despair. The spicy essential oil is also used to fight illness and improve the immune system. Cinnamon is obtained from the inner bark of several trees belonging to the genus Cinnamomum.
The aroma of cinnamon is warm, spicy and musky. In Egypt this spice was imported as early as 2000 BC and often included in foot massage oils. In Greece, cinnamon was used as temple incense, filling sacred spaces with a rich spicy aroma. This ancient spice is also a necessary ingredient in delicious mulled wine and used in numerous sweet and spicy foods.
