cinnamon has been used medicinally for centuries thanks to its antibacterial and antifungal properties, as well as high amounts of polyphenol antioxidants. it also has been found in some cases to have benefits for blood-related conditions, which is why it’s the perfect addition to any heart-opening potion you may concoct. while (western) medicine is out on that last point, there’s no denying that the addition of this spice to baking and cooking is a delicious decision. use it in ground or stick form to reap its benefits.
