Spice-Rack: Cinnamon for Congestion, Diarrhea, & Nausea


Cinnamon is good for so many things besides making Snickerdoodle Cookies, etc. If you have the sniffles, it can help to relieve congestion.

Make cinnamon tea to help relieve the following:

  • * Congestion
  • * Diarrhea
  • * Nausea
  • * Runny nose
  • * Metabolize fats

How to make cinnamon tea:

All you have to do is make the tea with one cinnamon stick or one teaspoon ground cinnamon (or more to taste), one cup boiling water, and let steep for 15 minutes.  Stir well.  Sweeten with Stevia (this is what I use), honey, agave nector, or your sweetener of choice.

* However, women who are pregnant should not use large amounts of cinnamon, but it’s OK in foods.
