Herbal Folklore & Tradition

 

The inner bark of the new shoots from the cinnamon tree are gathered every two years and sold in the form of sticks for use as a domestic spice. It has been used for thousands of years in the east for a wide range of complaints including colds, flu, digestive and menstrual problems, rheumatism, kidney troubles and as a general stimulant.
