Ever wondered why Cinnamon is a common flavoring, especially during the winter holidays? Beyond it’s pleasant taste in cider, mulled wine, cinnamon buns, or even breath mints this helpful bark is used in herbal medicine for digestive upsets of all kinds. A tonic for the digestive system, it can help regulate the appetite, may stabilize blood sugar, and is a natural remedy for nausea and vomiting. Plus, it can help ward off winter colds and flu - especially those that include aching, chills, and sweating. It's warming, soothing and delicious. To make tea use one teaspoon per cup of boiling water, let it steep for 20 minutes and enjoy. (You could also add it to your coffee, hot cereal, ice cream, toast, yogurt, etc).

Essential oils are derived from distilling large amounts of plant material into concentrated essences. In aromatherapy cinnamon essential oil is used to help with the flu, coughs, colds, arthritis and viral infections. When diluted cinnamon essential oil is applied to the body, made from the leaves of the tree (oil from the bark can irritate the skin), it stimulates our circulatory system and can even relieve pain. It has a warming affect which, combined with it’s analgesic property is great for relieving muscle and joint pain. It can also increase blood flow to the hands and feet - keeping us a little warmer during the winter months. Earth Tu Face’s Body Butter contains a small amount of cinnamon essential oil - so besides smelling great (sort of like a coconut chocolate chai) you get the benefits of cinnamon essential oil on your skin and into your body.
