Notes from a Wise Woman

Cinnamon Spice

Tis the season for everything nice. Warm weather leaves us to find comfort indoors, it is time to nest and lean into the creature comforts of the season. Our favorite root, herbs, and spices are on display.

My favorite, must have in bulk, use all the time, go to in the kitchen and my apothecary is Cinnamomon verum. Also called Ceylon cinnamon, it is a bushy evergreen tree, part of the laurel (Lauraceae) family, whose spice is derived from its bark.

There are many uses for this versatile spice.

In the garden it can be used to stimulate root cuttings for propagation, prevent fungus, and even helps keep pests away from your home.

Cinnamon does work to keep all kinds of pests away, including the spiritual kind.

  • Burn it to banish negative energy and purify your space

  • Drink cinnamon tea to stimulate appetite and intuition

  • Add it to a mojo bag along with bay leaves for luck and prosperity

  • Wrap nine (9) cinnamon sticks together in a bundle and hang over your front door or place them in the window sill to ward your home from any bad intentions of those passing through

Medicinally, cinnamon has as many benefits, including:

  • anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties

  • antioxidants with anti-inflammatory effects

  • prebiotic properties which may improve gut health

  • reduces blood pressure

  • lowers blood sugar and risk of type 2 diabetes

  • relieves digestive discomfort

Whether you add it to food and drink, burn it like incense, or use it as an amulet for protection and luck, cinnamon will draw abundance to you all season long.
