Everyone's favorite cool weather spice! The aromatic bark of the Cinnamon tree is widely cultivated and celebrated for it's use as a culinary spice, however it has rich historical value for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine.

Cinnamon is often used in herbal preparations to enhance the bio-availability of other herbs, to balance digestion, and relieve headaches. It is a warming spice, and contributes the sweet, pungent and bitter tastes.  Combined with other warming herbs and spices like ginger and black pepper, it can be boiled into an herbal tea to soothe discomfort associated with colds. 

Cinnamon trees are easy to grow and make a great indoor potted plant.
