I recently did a Post about DoTERRA Essential Oil Cinnamon and Weight Loss. I wanted to go into detail about the great benefits of Cinnamon and all the wonderful things it can help with. I love using Cinnamon it gives me energy, helps with weight loss and levels blood sugar levels so I don't have those really bad sugar cravings. I also use it if anyone has diarrhea. I warm up water put honey and 3 drops Cinnamon. It tastes great and does so many things at once. My husband used it to stop chewing he got toothpicks and soaked them in DoTERRA's Cinnamon Oil. He said it stopped the cravings and it was nice to have something in his mouth. There are so many great things about Cinnamon. Just make sure you wash your hands with soap and water Cinnamon it is very powerful. I get mine from DoTERRA because they are the highest quality of Essential Oils out there and are completely pure.
