The Cinnamon tree is native to many countries with tropical climates such as Southern India, Burma, Madagascar but the Ceylon Cinnamon tree originated in Sri Lanka. Each country has a different species, each with differing aromatic compounds. These trees are evergreen and typically grow up to 15 meters in height with strong, thick branches The Sri Lankan varietal produces thin, smooth bark with a light-yellowish brown color. It is this bark that is harvested for essential oil production and then allowed to re-grow.
About The Oil
Organic Cinnamon CO2 extract is considered a warming remedy, stimulating digestion and circulation, while supporting the immune system. Our Ceylon Cinnamon oil is made by the method of cool-process CO2 extraction from the inner bark of Cinnamon trees from Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan CO2 oil is the finest cinnamon we’ve ever come across, perfect in every way, and is considered the best cinnamon essential oil on the planet. We find the newly added certified organic Indonesian ‘Burmanii’ variety exceptional too (it’s the favorite of some of the Ananda staff!) Both are exceptionally potent antimicrobial essential oils and should be used with care.
