Cinnamon usage dates back thousands of years, and the “true” spice is derived from a tropical evergreen tree that grows as tall as 30 feet. Both the bark and the leaves of the tree are used to produce different types of essential oil (Cinnamon Bark and Cinnamon Leaf).

While you may think that you’ve actually used cinnamon while cooking, the odds are that you’re using cassia instead of true cinnamon. Cassia is less expensive to cultivate and produce than actual cinnamon produced from the bark or leaves of the different varieties of cinnamon tree (Cinnamomum Verum and Cinnamomum Zeylanicum). Cinnamon Zeylanicum is the varietal most commonly used in essential oil.

Cinnamon was first introduced to the west, and very rarely revealed the origins of the spice over the course of 3000 years.

Cinnamon has a range of benefits. Its primary constituents are cinnamaldehyde, caryophyllene, Eugenol, and Linalool. Cinnamaldehyde is highly antifungal, and antibacterial, caryophyllene has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, and Linalool has been shown to produce vitamin E, which is an anti-stress agent that can help promote better sleep.

Additionally, cinnamon has been shown to support oral and cardiovascular health, and relieve pain. Some people have reported that the spice has aphrodisiac-like properties and even that it can act as an aid in erectile dysfunction.
