True Cinnamon

The True Cinnamon Tree

If unattended a cinnamon tree can grow as tall as 100 feet. However, in cinnamon industry, trees are pruned and maintained as bushes so that tree stems with 1-2 inches can be harvested twice a year to peel off the bark. Extractions made from different parts of cinnamon tree with different methods yield different natural products – Euginol and cinnamaldehyde from leaves, Camphor from the root etc.

The True Cinnamon Tree Leaf

Dried cinnamon leaf is used to extract cinnamon oil, which contains Eugenol and Cinnamaldehyde as major organic compounds. Eugenol is used in perfumes and flavorings and has medical applications as it has antiseptic activity. Cinnamaldehyde is a natural pain reliever and has anti-inflammatory activity. Cinnamon oil is used to alleviate joint pains and tooth ache. Soothing and arousing smell of cinnamon oil also has an aphrodisiac effect in both men and women.

The True Cinnamon Quills

Cinnamon quills are the inner bark of the stem of cinnamon tree. Immediately after cutting, the stem from the tree is processed while it is still wet by scrapping off the outer bark and beating the stem evenly with a special metal rod to loosen the inner bark. Loosened bark is peeled off into long rolls. There are bark scraps produced during the process, especially from thin stems. Those will be packed inside long rolls. Those will be dried for 4-6 hrs to produce Cinnamon quills. These quills are graded based on their diameter for the world market.

Pick the Proper Cinnamon

True Cinnamon is different from common cinnamon. It has different effects as it is comprised of a different ecological makeup.
