Cinnamomum Zeylanicum or Cinnamomum Verum is indigenous to Sri Lanka and now commonly also grown in Madagascar.
It is a tropical evergreen tree in the laurel family growing up to 45 feet tall in the wild.
The tree has a highly fragrant odor and is commonly used in small amounts as a spicy addition to creams, lotions, and soaps.
Our Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is steam-distilled from the very thin, smooth bark of trees grown in Sri Lanka.
