Cinnamon oil from a chemical viewpoint is uniquely interesting. The volatile Cinnamon oil is obtained from the bark, leaf, and root bark vary significantly in chemical composition. Each oil has a different primary constituent:
- Cinnamaldehyde - in the Cinnamon bark oil
- Eugene - in the Cinnamon leaf oil
- Camphor - in the Cinnamon root and bark oil
Recent studies based on techniques such as gas-liquid chromatography and infrared spectrometry have revealed that the three Cinnamon oils possess the same array of monoterpene hydrocarbons in different proportions.
The technology of production of Cinnamon oil has varied little from the methods introduced by the early Dutch settlers in Ceylon. They are based on variations on the general theme of steam distillation. Recently, new still designs have greatly enhanced the technological capability in Sri Lanka .
Cinnamon bark oil and Cinnamon leaf oil is used in the food and cosmetic industries.
