Many people know about Cinnamon but not many people know about the enormous power of Cinnamon. Just like Apple Cider Vinegar which cures so many every day ailments, Cinnamon should be an essential tool for healthy living.
Cinnamon is one of the most powerful antiviral and antibacterial spices on earth. Clinical tests show that it destroys 99.5% of all germs and viruses that it comes into contact with.
Aside from its use for cooking, many are unaware of its potential uses in warding off colds, flu, and viruses and in eliminating harmful microbes and germs from our environment.
It has a pleasant spicy scent that can be used to refresh potpourri, scent candles and soap or by adding to bath water for a relaxing soak. Try putting a teaspoon of Cinnamon into a small cup of water for use as a mouth rinse. Not only will it freshen your breath but it is also good for mouth and gum infections. When used in this way, do not swallow – just rinse and spit out.
Cinnamon oil can be made with a dilution of pure vegetable oil; may be applied, diluted, to soles of feet, chest, back and throat to prevent colds and flu or as a massage oil.
