In Ayurveda, cinnamon is used as a remedy for digestion and cure cold. In traditional Chinese medicine, Cassia cinnamon is believed to improve energy, vitality, and circulation and be particularly useful for people who tend to feel hot in their upper body but have cold feet. No wonder cinnamon always evokes that warm, fuzzy feeling in me. The aroma of cinnamon never failed to remind me of sticky buns, pretzels and warm apple crumble pie.
