OCTOBER 10, 2017 CINNAMON BARK

When you think of cinnamon you might think of a cold winter day where you mom added cinnamon to your hot chocolate. I think of Murray’s Ice Skating Rink in Yonkers NY where I loved their hot chocolate and sprinkles of cinnamon . The herb is an astringent, antispasmodic and even an antiseptic.
It is a great warming herb.
I now  think of cinnamon as a digestive herb and add it to our digestive blend – Gutsy . I ask the patient and add it separately as some clients do not like cinnamon. The cinnamon is drying for the GI tract and good for cases of unfortunate diarrhea. The volatile oil of cinnamon makes it ideal to gently support digestion

Until tomorrow…
