Would you believe it if we told you that cinnamon sticks came from cinnamon trees, which cinnamon birds collect to make cinnamon nests, and that we personally risked life and limb to harvest said nests for your benefit? No? Congratulations, you are smarter than the average European in the 1300’s, which is when that myth finally started to die out. This is why it’s called The Dark Ages.
However ridiculous it sounds, the myth does speak to the value of cinnamon at the time, when it was used not just for flavoring food and wine, but also to flavor mummies--or embalm them, whichever you prefer. Cinnamon bark was also burned as incense, given as offerings for kings and gods, and used as medicine for a variety of ailments.
Cinnamon essential oil is used in aromatherapy for grounding and mental stimulation. One study found the smell of cinnamon improved driving ability, suggesting the possibility cinnamon oil may indeed improve alertness.*
