Cinnamomum cecidodaphne Meissn.( Synonym: Cinnamomum glaucescens Nees.)

Traditional Uses:

Himalayan Cinnamon Fruit Oil, also known as Sugandha Kokila Oil is often said to be-“A Gift to Perfumers from the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal”.

C. glaucescens are large-sized evergreen tree species native to the tropical Himalayan regions of Nepal. They occur naturally in both the hills and plains up to an altitude of 1200 m and are known locally by the common name ‘Gondsoroi tree’. The wood of C. glaucescens imparts an oil rich in safrole, myristicin and elemicin. Almost all parts of the plants are aromatic. Berries of this plant yield Sugandha Kokila oil of high commercial value.

The essential oil is obtained from the dried berries of Cinnamomum cecidodaphne Meissn (syn. Cinnamomum glaucescens) by steam distillation.
