Cinnamomum verum or Ceylon cinnamon is most likely not what you’ll find in your home spice cabinet. Cassia cinnamon, is what is typically used as cinnamon although the Ceylon cinnamon is actually “real” cinnamon. Ceylon is quite a bit more expensive and difficult to harvest so it has been replaced with cassia. The flavors are quite similar as is the appearance. There are a number of benefits to choosing ceylon over cassia. Herbalists mostly use the ceylon variety for medicinal preparations.
- Appetite Loss
- Digestive Inflammation
- Blood Sugar
- Staph Infections
- Bad Breath
Native to Sri Lanka, cinnamon prefers specific growing conditions and is quite difficult to grow. The plant has been cultivated successfully in other tropical climates. The growing and harvesting of cinnamon is a large industry. The plant itself is a small evergreen tree which takes 2 years to be able to be harvested. It will grow 20+ feet tall with oblong leaves and yellowish white flowers. The bark is peeled off the tree and left to dry, it naturally curls while drying. Wild harvesting is not recommended.

Carrie is thrilled with B-DRY “This worked absolutely wonderfully for my 4-year-old son! After many, many nights of changing bedding, this worked within a week and he hasn’t wet the bed in months. He loves the cinnamon flavor too! Thanks so much!”
Katie uses Wild Cherry Coffaway “Helps with those awful nagging can’t-do-anything-about-it-no-matter-how-much-I-drink-or-how-many-cough-drops-I-eat coughs. Gave my chest some much needed relief after coughing almost non-stop for over a week! Allowed my body to rest and heal itself.”
Catherine found relief from Worm Out “My stomach hurt for several months before I started taking Worm Out. It has helped a lot. I am glad to have found an effective antiparasitic product without senna. My son swears by it for intestinal troubles. Also, I use it about once a month for four days as “maintenance” for relief of arthritis symptoms.”
