Cinnamomum Verum (Cinnamomum zeylanicum Blume) is an evergreen tree native to Sri Lanka, in which every part has a significant and unique fragrance. The leaves of the tree, which arered in colour before turning into green, are used to obtain a spicy and somehow smoky essential oil. Always considered a by-product of the bark harvesting, the leaves deliver a pleasant and distinctive smell.
The oil, from yellow to brownish orange in colour, is rich in Eugenol (75-90% content), giving it a typical spicy clove note with smoky and leathery undertones. Distilled in the fields after a drying period (even more during the rainy season), the leaves can also be used as ground fertiliser if the period is not suitable to allow distillation. Once empty of their oil, they will be dried again and used as fuel for the boiler. Having a strong local sourcing allows us to select the best distillers among those who are active around the country. With organic and conventional qualities, we make sure that all the different demands are reached.Back
