Cinnamon Bark comes from a tropical evergreen tree that is native to Sri Lanka. To obtain the essential oil, the bark of the tree undergoes a steam distillation process. This warmly scented, versatile oil was found in anointing oil from thousands of years ago. Egyptians employed it as a perfuming agent as well. Today, Cinnamon Bark plays a key role in Young Living’s popular Thieves® essential oil blend, and it is also found in Abundance™. .
