The Wonders of Cinnamon

Oh the things you can do with cinnamon. Sprinkle it on apples, add it to oatmeal, add a dash to coffee, cocoa, or tea. Use it in a pie recipe, on toast, or pancakes. Use it as a potpourri or almost anything else you can think of! The list goes on and on.

Actually cinnamon goes far beyond foods, beverages and household aromatherapy. Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices, and has been used in conventional Chinese and Ayruvedic medicines for healing illnesses. Not only is it used to remedy sicknesses, but it can also be used as a DIY to create a natural beauty product.

Lets begin…..
