History notes that Cinnamon has been in use for thousands of years - as early as 2,000BC. In 1518, Portuguese traders discovered cinnamon at Ceylon (present-day Sri Lanka) and conquered the island kingdom of Kotto, enslaving the island’s population and started exporting to Arab nations and Europe. Later when British invaded India, they found the land is more convenient to cultivate Ceylon Cinnamon and started growing the same in Kerala. Cinnamon is mainly cultivated for quills, quillings, featherings, chips, cinnamon bark oil and cinnamon leaf oil. Used mainly in the form of powder or small round pieces, Cinnamon is famous for its elegant taste and warm fragrance. It is widely used in various areas like food industries flavoring candies, liquors, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. It aids in diabetics by helping to digest the sugar present in blood. In addition leaf oil is widely used in perfumes and cosmetics while bark oil has anti-fungal properties.
