Cinnamon—also known as Ceylon or "true" cinnamon—is the inner bark of a tropical evergreen tree. In ancient times, this woody spice was more precious than gold. In those days, Egyptians used cinnamon medicinally as well as during the embalming process, when they filled the bodies with spiced preservatives. Nowadays, you'll find cinnamon in an array of sweet dishes and beverages, like a rich, velvety Chocolate Caliente. Whether the aroma evokes holiday nostalgia or an enduring trip to a Moroccan spice market, every cinnamon-scented breath of Earth Fire will transport you.
Cloves are the immature flower buds of another type of evergreen, which are harvested then dried. This pungent spice can be used whole or ground and frequently pairs with cinnamon in sweet treats. Don't underestimate cloves' ability to elevate savory flavors, however, from piquant Massaman curry to a delicate béchamel. Touted for their anti-fungal, antiseptic and painkilling qualities, cloves are also used in Ayurvedic medicine. In Victorian England, a clove-studded orange was a fragrant gift that communicated warm feelings; we spread those same good vibes with our Earth Fire Vape.
Cardamom has a unique and intensely aromatic taste. Fragrant like lavender, with hints of lemon and a coolness like mint, it is regarded as the queen of spices, ranking third most expensive in the world. These seedpods of plants in the ginger family can be black or green, each with slightly different flavor profiles, and are often included whole in "jeweled" rice dishes. Cardamom essential oil is a favorite for aromatherapy and is said to have anti-depressant properties. While everything from mulled wine to cider to eggnog can benefit from an unexpected pinch of cardamom, we think you'll love it most in each tasty pull of Earth Fire.
Cassia is the bolder side of cinnamon. They resemble each other, but in stick form, cinnamon rolls into a single quill, while cassia rolls from both sides inward to look like a scroll. Whereas cinnamon is used for desserts or dishes requiring subtle flavors, cassia is the seasoning of choice in intense, spicy, main dishes, making it a natural inclusion in Chinese five-spice. A heady, warming aroma, cassia is considered one of the 50 fundamental herbs of traditional Chinese medicine, and its essential oil is believed to promote healthy digestion and immune function. Ignite your vitality and your taste buds with the cassia in every spicy puff of Earth Fire.
