Cinnamon and Honey

In yesterday's post, I said that I had added cinnamon and honey to the Jillian Michaels' water weight loss drink. I have been using cinnamon and honey for all kinds of purposes from the weight loss drink, to an acne cure, to a healthful drink. I received a chain email from my mom earlier this year that had all of these tips for using cinnamon and honey as a health benefit.

I, personally, make the cinnamon and honey drink. I think it says below to add it to your tea. I just make it as the tea itself. I warm up a mug of water in the microwave. I only warm it for one minute because I do not like my mouth to be burnt to a crisp by a hot drink. Then I add around a tablespoon or so of honey and then sprinkle a teaspoon or so of cinnamon and stir it up. It actually tastes very good. It can calm your stomach, and I hope that it has been helping my arteries and such. It is hard to tell with my blood pressure. I am on the low blood pressure extreme. Even when I am stressed to the max and am sitting in the doctor's office crying, my blood pressure reads 114/68. Before I had kids, my norm was around 90/60, and the doctor would ask if I was dead! After kids, I am usually around 100/65.

Besides drinking it, I have also made the cinnamon and honey into a paste. I then apply it to my face at night, coating any problem pimple/acne areas. In the morning I just wash it off. I have found that it makes an area clear up much more quickly than with regular acne medicines. I have also successfully extracted out millia, which are hardish white areas that form and can be caused by eating excess sugar! (Yes, I have a sweet tooth!) I had an aesthetician dig out a millia once, and I thought I was going to go out of my skin, and I have a huge pain threshold. I have done it myself after applying the honey and cinnamon without thinking I was going to fall over dead from the pain. I don't do the honey and cinnamon paste every night, just when I notice more of a breakout. Please note, it does dry on your face as brown marks, so if your children see you, they may be a little concerned! As in, "Mom what happened to your face!" It does taste good if you get any in your mouth though! And you should beware of your cat that likes to sleep on your pillow as she might be interested in snacking on your acne cure in the middle of the night!

Below I am attaching the original email from my mom so you can read through what honey and cinnamon might be able to do for you!

Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call "crystallizing" When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, turn off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey.

Bet the drug companies won't like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and Cinnamon: It is found that a mixture of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a 'Ram Ban' (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases.
