Cinnamon for cleaning, the antibiotic, antimicrobial and antifungal spice
Not just delicious sprinkled on your hot chocolate or mochaccino, cinnamon has a host of other uses. The powder and essential oil are derived from the bark of the Cinnamomum tree, which is mainly grown in Sri Lanka, Indonesia, China, Vietnam, and Burma. It’s antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial.
Cinnamon has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years for a variety of ailments. There are two types of cinnamon- Ceylon and Cassia. They both have similar health benefits, although Cassia contains more coumarin, a compound that can be harmful in large doses.
Anti-microbial, anti-biotic, anti-fungal, and anti-viral
How amazing that one spice can have so many fantastic qualities. Cinnamaldehyde is the active compound that makes cinnamon smell and taste amazing, and it also imparts health benefits. It stops the growth of fungi including Candida. Cinnamon’s antimicrobial properties mean it can be used as a natural food preservative. Because it is so effective in killing fungi, it’s excellent in the garden as a natural fungicide!
