Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) has many common everyday uses and some not
so common uses. Everybody has probably used cinnamon for some reason,
whether for cooking purposes or medicinal purposes. Despite being widely
used in food and pharmacy it is also important in the cosmetic and perfumery
industries (7). In some areas cinnamon has been known to be used for
religious purposes. It is no wonder cinnamon is an important economic plant
with all these possible uses for its products. Although it is mildly
astringent, Cinnamon has few cosmetic uses as it is strongly stimulating to
the skin and warms the body. It is stimulating, toning and warming. o
