Tonight we studied : Cinnamon-I learned that it helps metabolize diabetes sugars 1/8-1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon per meal helps control bloodsugar level & lower cholesterol. Uses- The bark quills are added to savory dishes in Asian and African cookery, and to desserts and drinks in Europe. Essential oils in the leaves, bark, stems, and roots are used to flavor food and scent perfumes. The antiseptic, tonic, and warning leaf oil treats nausea and hypertension. The oils can irritate skin and must be avoided during pregnancy, as they may cause miscarriage. I will share about Lavender tomorrow. With great recipes.
