Cinnamon is used to cure bronchitis, asthma, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, flatulence, fever, headaches, bad breath and toothaches. Cinnamon oil is useful in anorexia, inflammations, vomiting, and pain in the stomach and toothache. The leaves are used in the form of powder or decoction which is then added to medicines. They stimulate the peristaltic wave and help in relieving distention of the abdomen or flatulence. They also increase urination, which in a way helps in expelling metabolic waste products or toxins out of the body.
Cinnamon is considered a good remedy for irritating cough, common cold, allergic rhinitis, and acute and chronic sinusitis. It helps in relieving a choking sensation and cleans respiratory passages. Cinnamon, along with a few other herbal powders is boiled in water and used for gargling in case of sore throat. An herbal tea is prepared out of these medicines and served hot as a diaphoretic mixture in case of influenza and other unknown origin fevers. It induces sweating and helps in relieving the fever.
An ayurvedic carminative mixture for pediatric or adult use essentially contains cinnamon. It also has proved its merit as a mouth freshener. This is the reason why it is included in most of herbal toothpastes.
