Cinnamomum zeylanicum
also known as Sweet Wood, Cinnamon

Cinnamon is a common spice for cooking, aromatherapy, aromas, incense, and scent. It is an astringent, stimulant, and carminative aiding digestion and relieving vomiting. Japanese researchers found it to contain a substance that kills fungi, bacteria, and other microorganisms. In culinary use, it creates a pungent and slightly sweet taste. The inner bark is used for powders, barks, and chips, or sticks – ground or whole. Often added to savory meats and desserts or as an aromatic. According to folklore, it has numerous medicinal and health benefits. It is said to lower blood sugar, boost metabolism (especially the essential oil), weight loss, fight acne, boost collagen, make skin look young, cancer treatment (slow cancerous growths and kill tumor cells), lower blood pressure, fight against Alzheimer’s, improve memory, reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol, fight bacteria, fight yeast infection, regulate menstrual cycles, etc.   Its gender is masculine, the planet is the sun, an element of fire, and associated with the Deities Venus and Aphrodite. Its magical and folk properties are believed to induce/attract spirituality, success, healing, power, psychic powers, lust, protection, and love. 

Magical uses:
The oil used to anoint people in Hebrew magical rites. Cinnamon tree leaves were woven into wreaths to decorate Roman temples. The oil was used by Ancient Egyptians during mummification. When burned as incense it raises higher spiritual vibrations, healing, draws money, stimulates psychic powers, and produces protection. Often used in sachets and infusions for these reasons. 

We have chips, powder, and essential oils available.
