Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil


Botanical Name: Cinnamomum zeylanicum
Geographic Origin: Sri Lanka
Method of Farming: 100% Pure – Conventional
Method of Extraction: Steam Distillation
Part of Plant: Leaves


Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil is derived from the leaves of an evergreen tree, native to Sri Lanka. Three distinct oils are produced by C. zeylanicum: bark, leaf, and root. The trees may reach approximately 60 ft in height. In leaf cultivation, the continual removal of shoots by cropping the young tree to almost ground level results in the formation of a dense bush with ample leaves and shoots. After trimming and pruning, the leaves left behind from the cutting of the stems are usually allowed to dry for a few days before distillation.  The leaves are then collected and laid in piles along two ropes. These ropes are used to roll the leaves into bundles which are carried out of the plantation by workers on foot. The bundles are transported to the still, where they are placed into the vats for distillation. This regular maintenance provides the basis of raw material to produce Cinnamon Leaf oil. Cinnamon Leaf Oil is pale-yellow to dark yellow. It has a gentler effect than Cinnamon Bark oil, due to a higher content of eugenol. Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil has a warm, spicy, sweet, and somewhat sharp aroma. The scent of is not as full bodied as Cinnamon Bark. Genuine natural Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil is re-distilled to remove color.

BIBLICAL OIL: “In Exodus, God told Moses to take myrrh, cinnamon, olive oil and bull rushes with him from Egypt. The ancient Egyptians were known to have used cinnamon in mummification. Diodorus described how after cleaning the body with palm wine and spices and anointing it with cedar oil and other unguents it was then rubbed down with myrrh, cinnamon and other aromatics to preserve it.” (Manniche L. An ancient Egyptian herbal. British Museum Press, Great Britain, 1993.)

  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
