Cinnamon is one of Kenneth Turner’s favourite spices. It’s used in our Signature range – more widely recognised as our ‘Original’ scent – and we thought with Christmas up and coming our next blog would have to be about our favourite spice.
Who doesn’t love the smell of cinnamon being baked or the scent filling your room from our Signature candle, but where does cinnamon come from? And how is cinnamon used around the world?
Most of the worlds’ cinnamon comes from Southern Asian countries like Sri Lanka, Indonesia & India and people in these regions have been using cinnamon medicinally for centuries.
Here are some of the benefits of cinnamon:
- Plump up the skin
- Scalp cleansing
- Treating eczema
- Treating acne
- An antiseptic
- An exfoliating agent
Not only is cinnamon great for the skin, it’s also been known to ease stress and encourage the body to relax when inhaled. We could not agree more and to help you relax and have a stress-free day, why not try our favourite recipe from BBC Food?
