Cinnamon is a tropical evergreen growing up to 15m high, with strong branches and thick scabrous bark with young shoots speckled green-orange. It has shiny green, leathery leaves, small white flowers and oval bluish-white berries. The leaves have a spicy smell when bruised. The Cinnamon Leaf oil is extracted by steam distillation from the leaves and twigs. The leaves left after trimming the cut stems, as well as those obtained from pruning operations, provide the raw material for production of cinnamon leaf oil. They are usually allowed to dry for a few days before distillation. Traditional stills in Sri Lanka are large wooden vessels capable of holding up to 200 kg of leaves, on top of which is a copper still head. Steam is introduced from a separate wood-fired boiler. In some cases, all-metal vessels are used and water-steam distillation is employed.
Cinnamon Oil makes a great gift for friends, family or for yourself. Captures the invigorating essence of one of nature's most beloved and sought after extracts for health and general well being.

As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier.)
