Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil
(Cinnamomum zeylanicum, C. verum)
“An orange day, a happy day, a brand-new day in the secret language that only the three of us seemed to understand. "Mmmmm," Daddy said, taking a bite of his roll. "Orange wakes you up, but cinnamon makes you remember.”
- Judith Fertig, The Cake Therapist
A middle note of medium aroma, it has a warm, spicy scent between that of clove and cinnamon, but with herbaceous notes that are not sweet.
