Cinnamon oil is extracted from cinnamon sticks through steam distillation. These in turn consist of the peeled and dried bark of the evergreen Chinese cinnamon tree (“Cinnamomum cassia”).
Cinnamon is said to be particularly effective in the case of chronic inflammation. Cinnamon oil can inhibit inflammatory processes. It is also circulation-boosting and warming, which has a positive effect on joint ailments, among other things.
