Used for thousands of years, Cinnamon not only is a delicious spice, it also has an incredible array of health benefits. Made from the inner bark of the Cinnamomum tree, cinnamon dates back as far as Ancient Egypt where it used to be rare and valuable, regarded as a gift fit for a king. Loaded with antioxidants, this little spice can help the body fight infections and repair tissue damage.
Cinnamon can also soften rough or dry skin, particularly on the feet, thanks to its antibacterial properties. By acting like an exfoliate, cinnamon cleanses the scalp and stimulate hair growth, when used in hair care products, as well as enhancing facial complexion and temporarily reducing fine lines by improving blood flow to the outer layers of the skin.
