Does Cinnamon Help With Bad Breath?

The Benefits of Cinnamon.

The distinct fragrance of this earthy spice evokes images of the holidays with steaming cups of hot cocoa and endless helpings of apple pie. Native to Sri Lanka, cinnamon is one of the oldest spices in the world and also one of the most popular. It contains calcium, fiber, iron, and manganese, as well as healing essential oils in its bark. 

Cinnamon is literally chockfull of polyphenols which are powerful antioxidants. It has the highest concentration of antioxidants from all spices and the 7th highest among all foods. It also contains phenolic acid and other flavonoids. These compounds give cinnamon potent properties that can change the game when it comes to beauty care. 

Cinnamon in Cosmetics.

As should be obvious, cinnamon has amazing anti-ageing properties. It destroys free radicals and prevents signs of premature aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation. The cinnamaldehyde present in cinnamon also boosts collagen production resulting in improved skin elasticity and a restoration of healthy skin. It stimulates blood vessels to improve blood circulation resulting in a healthy and glowing complexion.

Cinnamon is a great ally in the never ending battle against acne and breakouts. It has antimicrobial, antiseptic, and anti-fungal properties which can effectively reduce acne. It also works by reducing excess sebum production and exfoliates the skin of dead cells, bacteria, and other debris that build up and clog pores and skin cells. It also nourishes skin cells by improving blood circulation and helps dry up acne. 

What Can Cinnamon Be Used For?

Cinnamon has the ability to plump up lips and skin as well and hence provides an all-natural alternative to cosmetic fillers. It works by increasing blood flow to the surface of the skin and swelling it up. It also helps even out skin complexion by reducing redness and inflammation that cause an uneven skin tone. Cinnamon also has many benefits for hair and scalp. 

It can deep cleanse the scalp, removing excess oil, product buildup, and providing soothing properties to control dandruff and other scalp inflammations. It also stimulates hair growth by boosting blood circulation and increasing nourishment to hair follicles. This deeply conditions and nourishes the hair from their roots and a healthy scalp also ensures healthy hair growth.
