Cinnamon is a very distinct spice. There are 2 basic types of cinnamon: Ceylon & Cassia. In the United States, Chinese cassia is the most common type of cinnamon used. According to How Stuff Works, Sri Lanka produces much of the world’s Ceylon cinnamon, even though the tree is also commercially grown in Brazil, the Caribbean and India, although harder to get as it’s the more expensive and better version for dietary uses.
According to CNN, Cinnamon has been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat respiratory and digestive problems for centuries. Ancient Egyptians used cinnamon as a perfume during the embalming process, while Romans used it in funeral pyres to mask the stench of burning flesh. The buds are also used as a spice, especially in India, and were once used by the ancient Egyptians and Romans.
