Who does not like cinnamon???!!! I don't think I have ever met anyone who does not like it. Even the smell of it is fabulous, especially around the holiday's. My house reeks of it in December. You can make ornaments with it too and you can even find it in candles.

The health properties are fabulous as well. There are so many benefits to it. It has been known to help lower blood sugars, cure infections and even cure a cold. It is also a cancer preventer and can help with PMS among many other things. #cinnamonbenefits

Here is a list of some ailments that cinnamon has been known to help.
Fungal Infections
Multiple Sclerosis
Stomach Flu
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Arthritis and Osteoporosis

There are two types of cinnamon which I have to admit, I didn't know until about a year ago. Anyway, there is ceylon cinnamon that is considered to be the "true cinnamon" and apparently more expensive. Then there is chinese or cassia cinnamon that is less expensive than ceylon and this is what is typically used in the U.S. If you have cinnamon in your spice cabinet that says canela molida, this simply means ground cinnamon.

I put it in everything I can from my hot cereal, my banana breakfast shakes, zucchini bread and cookies. It is so easy to add to almost anything. Try some today.
