Ceylon Cinnamon: The Fragrant Spice Plant
As a spice, True, or Ceylon Cinnamon is used daily by people all over the world. But it has been valued for centuries for its health-supporting characteristics. It was so precious in the ancient world that it was used as a form of currency. Physicians in the Middle Ages used Ceylon Cinnamon in tonics to treat sore throats and coughs. The spice was widely used to preserve meat because of the plant’s bacteria-inhibiting characteristics.
Cherished for more than 2,000 years, the Egyptians were the first on the historical record to use Cinnamon. It is also mentioned as an ingredient in anointing oil in the Old Testament.
