Also known commonly as cinnamon cassia, Chinese cassia, or cassia bark comes from the Lauraceae plant family.
Cinnamon Sticks are commonly used in potpourri, distilled for essential oils, and as an herbal remedy. The aromatic nature of the item has made it a popular item for centuries, and now it’s commonly used for a variety of aromatherapy purposes. The scent of the cinnamon stick is often used to stimulate the senses, providing a positive and uplifting mood when inhaled as well as a traditional medicinal spice.
The sticks are large, smooth and a deep brown coloring, while the Cassia Vera variety can be broken, cracked and cleaned. This variety is often used in tinctures, and potpourri due to their highly aromatic nature. The sticks are a great substitution to those who don’t like working directly with the oils.
The dried botanicals are great for making sachets that can be placed around the house, in drawers or commonly ignored household areas (think cinnamon moth balls). The sachets are also great to hang near the door, window or even throughout your car to keep insects at bay.
You can also add them to a bowl as a potpourri, either by themselves or with other dried botanicals (Note they are most aromatic when placed in sunny/warm locations). They are great for mixing into your soap making to add a gentle exfoliate to your final product. The cinnamon is soothing and great for people with sensitive skin.
Whatever your use, dried botanicals are fantastic for people looking for an all-natural way to scent their homemade goodies. They also add a wonderful coloring and texture to those soaps and bath and body products.
Please note always recommend checking with a physician before using herbal products, in particular if you are pregnant, nursing or using other medications.
Excellent quality and fast delivery.
I was searching all over for cinnamon sticks to complete my canning lid pumpkins and I happened upon bulk apothecary. Package arrived as advised and the product was just perfect
they were exactly what I ordered and of very good quality.
Was very pleased with the quality of these sticks. Not brittle, they are just right for our needs.
Thank you. I haven't used them yet, but they all arrived in excellent condition an look sturdy and clean. Look forward to using them in my project.
Great for what I needed them for. But there were many breaks and unusable ones. Out of 10 bags, 1 bag was equal to all that couldn't be used.
It would also be easier if a customer could order
the number of sticks rather than by the lb. They should also be packed better.
I really enjoy this Cinnamon stick
