Like other spices, cinnamon was an extremely valuable trade commodity in ancient times. Extracted from the bark of trees from the Cinnamomum genus, cinnamon has a very distinct flavor and aroma that’s warm, spicy and aromatic. Cinnamon’s value was such that it was considered a gift worthy of only royalty and divinity by many different cultures. It was revered as a spice and a flavoring for beverages, but its source was a closely guarded secret for centuries due to its fantastic value. Cinnamon is mentioned often in the Bible, and in ancient manuscripts from Egypt, Rome, Greece, China, India, Arabia and many others. In aromatherapy cinnamon oil’s warm aroma and spicy overtones are ideal for comforting and energizing. NOW Solutions offers two different varieties of cinnamon oil, Cinnamon Bark Oil from Cinnamomum verum and Cinnamon Cassia Oil from Cinnamomum cassia.
