The Ancient Healing Spice 

Cinnamon is a spice commonly used in cooking that comes from the bark of the cinnamon tree. When the bark is removed, it’s called a cinnamon stick. 

Cinnamon has also been used as medicine in traditional healing. You can grind up fresh cinnamon sticks to make tea, to cook into your food or sprinkle on oatmeal, soups, rice dishes or desserts.

 In Ayurvedic terms, cinnamon pacifies Vata and Kapha doshas. It has a sweet, pungent, and bitter rasa, taste and is excellent for digestion, strengthening the heart and warming the kidneys. 

However you apply cinnamon in stick or in powder form, cinnamon is sure to spice up your life!
