Cinnamon – When I was younger I never knew I was treating my self with herbs that would be beneficial to me: Toasted bread, butter, sugar, and CINNAMON.
Cinnamon or Cinnamomum is a great herb to have handy in the kitchen or café. Cinnamon is an Herbal Carminative (eases the discomforts caused by flatulence). Cinnamon and other herbal carminatives such as garlic, dill eucalyptus, peppermint, and many others contain volatile oils. These herbals work on the gut and are helpful with the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, reproductive system, musculoskeletal system, nervous system, and skin.
Some of the Herbal Carminatives include:
Garlic, dill, angelica, celery seed, wormwood, caraway, cinnamon, cardamom, eucalyptus, fennel, wintergreen, hops, juniper, motherwort, lemon balm, chamomile, peppermint, parley, aniseed, sage, pennyroyal, thyme, valerian, and ginger.
