Cinnamon with its soft, yet spicy, aroma is one of the most common spices. It is found in many pantries around the world and it has great health value.

Because it is so commonly used, we often forget about cinnamon’s health benefits. It is useful in regulating blood sugar levels, also it is great for warming and soothing tired muscles. It has antiseptic properties to help fight germs. Its rich spicy oil is an effective remedy for colds and flu when inhaled. It is also helpful in digestion and settling a nauseous stomach.

The Queen of Sheba gave cinnamon to King Solomon and it was one of the holy oils used in the Tabernacle. Cinnamon is easy to add to your daily routine. Sprinkle it on toast, cereal, oatmeal and even in your coffee, tea or milk.

Above all, enjoy the healthy benefits to such a common spice.
