Carriere Freres Cinnamon (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum) Candle: Cinnamon bark has been known for more than 4 500 years. It was used as a spice, but also for medicinal purposes. Egyptians associated it with aloe, myrrh and with other substances for embalming and the conception of essential oils and perfumes. It is also quoted in the tales of The Thousand and One Nights for its aphrodisiac properties. Cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon and the south-eastern coast of India. Despite its exotic and distant origins, cinnamon was known and widely used during antiquity. The Arabs were the first to introduce it to the west and dominated its trade for centuries via their network of trade routes that went as far as China.
Made by Cire Trudon, the very fine vegetable wax of Carriere Freres candles allow them to burn slowly and neatly. They are delicately perfumed, with a 50 hour burn time.
