Crushed and ground, the finished product is called “cinnamon powder”.

  [Research]: From “Tang Bencao”, (“Chinese Dictionary of Traditional Chinese Medicine”), “Shen Nong’s Materia Medica” (“Chinese Medicine Sea”) ① Tao Hongjing: “According to the” Book of Materia Medica, “there is only 箘, Mu Ergui, and Gui (one‘而无此桂’)用体大同小异。Today, there are three kinds of common use. The single-named Gui who uses half-fat fat is the most commonly used medicine . “The Classic” cloud: Gui leaves such as cypress leaves, dark black, yellow skin, and red heart.

“②” Tang Bencao “:” Puppets, bamboo names, those who used the ancient gui gui, so the cloud triplet is good. ”

There are also two or three rolls of the cassia laurel. The leaves are three lines, and the texture is as thin as bamboo. The large branches and twigs are all cassia, but the large branches cannot be rerolled, the taste is very thin, and it is not used in medicine.

Today only out of Shaozhou.

“Or Yun Mu Gui Gui is today Mu Gui and single name Gui also.

This sweet-scented osmanthus is the same as Tong Gui, except that the leaves are twice as long, and the large and small branches are named Mugui.
Of course, the large branch skin is as rough as Magnolia, and the flesh is less flavourful and less than the small branch skin.
The flesh of the twig is mostly rolled, and it will be wrinkled in the middle. It is spicy and beautiful.

One cinnamon, one cinnamon stick, one cinnamon heart.

Out of Rongzhou.

Liuzhou, Jiaozhou.

“” The leaves of Gui Gui are like persimmon leaves, with three vertical texts. The surface is hairless and shiny.

The cinnamon leaves are long.

Tao Yun Xiaogui, or a person whose leaves are small.

Tao Yin’s “Scripture” cloud, leaves are like cypress leaves, are not similar, I do not know where the words came from.

Today, there are two types of cinnamon, but the skins are slightly different. If the old skin of osmanthus osmanthus is sturdy and meatless, it is unusable; its small branches and thin rolls and the two or three folds, or the name of osmanthus or the tube of osmanthus, and its cassiaTender bark, called cinnamon, is also known as cinnamon stick; its old name is Mu Gui, also known as Da Gui, which is good for ginseng.

This is Gui Gui, with single Gui Tiao left, Tao is deeply wrong.

“③” Compendium of Materia Medica “:” Zigui, Mugui, Guixin, have three colors, and are the same thing.

According to Guilin, Guiling, because of the name of Gui, the birth of this today does not leave this county.

From the ridge south of the sea, there are laurels, but Liuzhou has the most.

The taste is intense, the skin is thick and firm, the thick is tender, and the thin is old.

The old thin person is the same color, and the thick and tender person is the same color. The tenderness is spicy and the tube is rolled; the old must be light and naturally thin.

The thin one, namely Mu Guiye, is named after the boss; the tube-roller, namely Gui Guiye, is tender and easy to roll.

The ancient prescription had a tube of gui, whose characters resemble 箘 characters. Later generations mistakenly wrote them, and became customary. As for the book’s biography, it was repeated.

Guixin is to remove the nails on the skin and take them close, which is sweet and interesting.

“④” This outline of the scriptures “:” From Lingnan today, there are the names of tube laurel, cinnamon, cassia heart, guan gui, and ban gui.

It used to be said that Gui Gui is as round as bamboo, and there are two or three of them, but what is now called Gui Gui.

Tube, 箘 character is near, or the wrong ear is written.

Or cloud that cinnamon also.

Mu cinnamon is thin, yellow in color, less fat meat, like Qi Mulan, taste similar, peeled the name Guixin, what is called Guangui today, this is also suspected.

Gui is a half-roll fatty person, what is called Ban Gui today, it is suspected to be this too.

The types in the pictures of Guan Bin, Yi, Shao, and Qin Zhuzhou are also different, but they are all titled Gui, without complex aliases.

“⑤” Outline “:” Gui is the thick and violent person of Mu Gui, and Mu Gui is the thin and light taste of Gui. ”

“” There are several kinds of gui, to visit today: Mu Gui leaves are as long as loquat leaves, hard and hairy and sawtooth, its flowers are white, and its skin is fatty.

Cinnamon leaves are narrow and bright like persimmon leaves, with three longitudinal texts without serrations, their flowers are yellow and white, and their skins are thin and rolled.

This is what the merchants are saying today.

But if the person who rolls is Gui Gui, the person who half rolls and board is Mu Gui, that is to understand.

Su Gong said that Zhenghe doctors see today’s users, Chen Zangqi and Chen Chengchuan.

Mu is one thing, not cricket.

Tao Hongjing Fu looks like the single word Gui as Ye Xibai, neither is it.

Bai Yezhi Gui is a cloud that is served by the food court.

Su Gong said slightly.

It is also inappropriate to use Qinzhou as the single word.

“” Gui, that is, cinnamon.

Thick and sturdy, for rough skin.

The person who removes the inner and outer skin is Guixin.
“” Mugui, that is Mugui, is thin and light, and is used to remove coarse skin.
The thinnest is Guizhi.

The youngest branch is Liu Gui.

“⑥” The Book “contains Mugui and Xigui, and” Guide of the Famous Doctor “has another” gui “.

“Compendium of Materia Medica” believes that Gui is Mu Gui, which are connected together into one.

You Yun: “Cinnamon is also cinnamon”, you can see Mu Gui, cinnamon is the same thing.

For example, Tao Hongjing, Tao Hongjing called it “a perfect circle like bamboo,” and the “Book of Classics” said: “The bark is blue and yellow, and the thin roll is like a tube.

Based on this, Tong Gui is now the official Gui.
