With a long and distinguished history Cinnamon has many mystical, medicinal as well as economic stories attached to it. This fiery spice is largely used as a culinary ingredient and has varying grades and qualities. Here at Indigo Herbs we have procured one of the best quality cinnamons available on the market that make up our pure Cinnamon Powder and Pure cinnamon Essential Oil. Both of these products are of premium quality and can be used as one sees fit.

Cinnamon is native to (Ceylon) Sri Lanka, The true cinnamon known as Cinnamomum zeylanicum dates back in Chinese writings to 2800 BC and is still known as ‘kwai’ in the Chinese language today. Its botanical name derives from the Hebraic and Arabic term ‘amomon’, meaning ‘fragrant spice plant’. In the first century AD, the Roman author Pliny the Elder wrote of 350g of cinnamon as being equal in value to over 5kg of silver, about fifteen times the value of silver per weight! By the time of the Roman Empire, it was a highly valuable commodity for both medicinal and culinary. In the 17th century, the Dutch seized the world's largest cinnamon supplier, the island of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), from the Portuguese, demanding outrageous amounts from the poor laboring Chalia caste.

When the Dutch learned of a source of cinnamon along the coast of India, they bribed and threatened the local king to destroy it all, thus preserving their monopoly on the prized spice. By 1833, the downfall of the cinnamon monopoly had begun when other countries found it could be easily grown in such areas as Java, Sumatra, Borneo, Mauritius, Réunion and Guyana. Cinnamon is now also grown in South America, the West Indies, and other tropical climates. Cinnamon has a long sacred and magical use. It was used as an incense in Chinese temples, and for embalming the dead in Egyptian times. It is highly recommended as a purification incense prior to sacred work and used traditionally for its capacity to increase focus and concentration.

Cinnamon has up to 250 different species in its family and is native to Sri Lanka. Nearly all Cinnamon is aromatic but only a few are cultivated for spice. The tree itself can reach a height of 20-30 feet and has shiny dark green ovate leaves. When the tree is young the leaves are red and look wilted to dissuade insects and other animals from invading the tree. This particular habit is so that it might survive to a point where it is less vulnerable in its pivotal growing stages. The tree has small white flowers which eventually turn into small blue berries.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air.

Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few.

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation, extraction or expression. During steam distillation the plant matter is put into boiling water or infused with steam. The steam is collected and the oils are separated from the water. During extraction, a solvent is used to extract the oil, by creating a concrete. This concrete is made up of plant matter, resins, waxes, and essential oils. A second solvent, such as ethyl alcohol is used to extract the essential oils from the concrete, this creates an absolute. During expression the plant matter is pressed (at cool temperatures) to release the oils.

Cinnamon Powder from Indigo Herbs is a premium quality spice derived from Cinnamon zeylanicum trees in Sri Lanka. Fantastic in all types of cooking. Indigo Herbs Cinnamon Powder can be added to a variety of different culinary dishes.

At Indigo Herbs we are passionate about premium quality botanicals. Explore the tabs on this page to find out more about the quality, manufacture and suggested use of this herbal powder. We are unable to advise you here on the benefits of our herbal products, however we do recommend you take the opportunity to research the many benefits of this herb. At Indigo Herbs we are committed to empowering optimum health and nutrition and assisting you to take responsibility for your own health and well-being, by having access to many of natures healing botanicals. Please consult an Herbalist as to how this product can benefit you.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

Cinnamon powder can be used extensively in cookery. Add to muffins, cakes, breads, flapjacks and curries. Tea: Add Cinnamon powder to your favorite herbal tea or make an Indian Tea with black tea, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, fennel seeds, vanilla powder and milk. Breakfast: Add cinnamon to your breakfast cereal, oat porridge or sprinkle on toast. Sprinkle cinnamon on your morning cup of coffee, cocoa or cappuccino. Use as required.

Serving:

½ to 2 teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder can be added to either sweet or savory foods/smoothies

1 teaspoon equals 2 grams (1 tsp = 2g)

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Cinnamon Powder is collected and processed in Sri Lanka. All Cinnamon zeylanicum trees that this bark is collected from come from a plantation that is cultivated specifically for use as Cinnamon Powder. Once the Cinnamon trees have reached the age of 2 years they are cut to the stump and the stump covered in soil. The next year the stump will sprout branches that will grow from the stump and it is these branches that are used for cinnamon. The branches are cut when they have reached the required size and stripped of their outer bark. When left in the sun the inner bark comes apart and curls into quills that is seen specifically in cinnamon sticks. These quills are then graded into different sizes and qualities before being tested for pollutants and packaged up. This whole process complies with GMP standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs.

Do not use cinnamon when breast feeding as it can be too irritating for a baby's digestive system.
