Ever wondered why Cinnamon is a common flavoring, especially during the winter holidays? Beyond its 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. Plus, it can help ward off winter colds and flu - especially those that include aching, chills, and sweating. This natural remedy is warming, soothing and delicious —not to mention supportive to our bodies.

At Earth Tu Face, our resident herbalist formulates with cinnamon in the form of its essential oil. 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 can be 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 effect which, combined with its 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. Find this precious oil in our Body Butter to reap the benefits of cinnamon essential oil on your skin and into your body.
