Cinnamon and Honey – Magic Mixture
Cinnamon bark is widely used as a spice. It is mainly used in cookery as a condiment or flavouring. In North Africa and the Middle East it is often used in savoury dishes of chicken and lamb.
In medicine Cinnamon has a reputation as a cure for colds. It has also been used to treat digestive symptoms. It is high in antioxidants and the essential oil of cinnamon has anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. Although it has been reported to have had significant results in the treatment of Type II Diabetes it seems that in actual fact, the substance used in the study was not true Cinnamon but Cassia. Cassia is a close relative but has a stronger flavour than Cinnamon and the sticks are thicker. It is generally a medium to light reddish brown and is hard and woody in texture. Most if not all of the powdered cinnamon sold in supermarkets in the US is actually Cassia.
Honey has been called the food of the gods; because it’s nutritional and healing properties have been known for thousands of years. It is a natural product with beneficial effects. It has been used for centuries as a cure-all; sometimes with miraculous results. It can be used both internally and topically for a myriad of conditions. Honey is hygroscopic; which means it has the property of absorbing moisture. It has natural antiseptic and soothing properties and is still found today in some creams and ointments as well as cough and cold remedies. This golden nectar can help to support your immune system and make disease resistance easier. Because it is a natural product there should never be any side effects.
Caution: never give honey to babies under 1 year
A Powerful Combination
Honey is produced all over the world and Cinnamon is widely grown in Sri Lanka, India, Java, Sumatra, the West Indies, Brazil, Vietnam, Madagascar, Zanzibar, and Egypt. Did you know though that when the two are combined they become a force to be reckoned with?
WHAT ARE THEY REPUTED TO CURE?
Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly arrests the advances of old age. Take 4 spoons of honey, 1 spoon of cinnamon powder and 3 cups of water and boil. Drink 1/4 cup, 3 to 4 times a day. It also helps to keep the skin soft and reduces wrinkles
Mix two teaspoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder into a cup of hot water. Take morning and night.

Equal parts of honey and cinnamon powder taken each morning helps to restore hearing loss.
Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food, relieves acidity and aids digestion.
In Ayurvedic medicine it is said that if impotent men regularly take two tablespoons of honey before going to sleep, their problem will be solved.
Women who cannot conceive can try a pinch of cinnamon powder in half teaspoon of honey and apply it to the gums frequently throughout the day, so that it slowly mixes with the saliva and enters the body.
Two parts honey to one part cinnamon can alleviate the symptoms of flu.
Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and from viral attacks.
Make a paste of I teaspoon of honey, two teaspoons of lukewarm water and a small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Gently rub this paste onto the bite and the pain will reduce very quickly.
Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder mixed to a paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. Your pimples should start to fade and disappear very soon.
Mix honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts and apply to affected areas. Good for eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.
Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey and apply to the aching tooth. This may be applied up to 3 times a day till the tooth stops aching.
Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.
Several reports say that drinking honey and cinnamon powder mixed with boiling water half an hour before breakfast and again at night before bed can reduce weight.
I cannot stress strongly enough that none of these formulas are a substitute for proper medical advice
They are only reputed to help with the above conditions.

Have started noticing that the frontside of my head is receding and is getting deeper and deeper. A mixture of honey, cinnamon and olive oil can help regrow my hairs in order to stop balding. I pray it will work and how does it takes for you to notice changes in your hair?
poetryman6969 on March 22, 2015:
Cures baldness and bad breath? I'm in!
stui on March 10, 2015:
Can you not use cascinnamon?
Jonp on September 25, 2014:
I read in a related article to use 1 tbls clover honey and 1/2 teas cinnamon powder in one cup warm water in am before breakfast to help relieve arthritis. I am amazed of its effectiveness. Your recipe is different. Is the one I use harmful? What is the difference if any of the varieties of honey? Clover, orange blossom, etc? Keep up the research! Thanks.
Shaz on May 29, 2014:
I Buy Mayvers Active Manuka honey with ceylon cinnamon, comes in a jar, I take a teaspoon , have on porridge, in organic green tea
Gordon on January 20, 2014:
The taste of these both together is not good can I add something to this drink also how much water is required I have arthritis I would love to start taking this remedy
BX Nena on November 16, 2013:
When I was in college I used to use cinnamon oil on my hair and it grew a lot to the point where I stopped using it b/c I had to relax my hair w/in 4 weeks rather than 8 weeks. Recently, noticed a few spots @ the frontside of my head and I have used cotton swab to apply cinnamon oil again and it's helped me see growth within a week time span & my baby hairs are stronger. I'll try to add honey and olive oil next week to see if my results will render major growth.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on November 03, 2013:
The tea may help more as the water activates the honey. Although porridge acts as a natural laxative for some people. There is no hard and fast rule as everyone is different and what works for one doesn't work for another. If the way you are currently taking it isn't helping I suggest you cut the cinnamon to half a teaspoon in your porridge and try the tea as well in the proportions I suggested. . I hope it works.
ColetteR on November 03, 2013:
Sorry I meant to say I mix it with my porridge in the morning!
ColetteR on November 03, 2013:
Thank you, I'm currently mixing a dessert spoon of honey with half a teaspoon of cinnamon - would it be better to take it with warm water rather than mix it like this? thank you again for your help.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on November 02, 2013:
Colette you could try a tea made from 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 tsp of honey in warm water with a tablespoon of lemon juice added.
ColetteR on November 01, 2013:
I have just bought some Manuka Honey and cinnamon to help with my constipation that I have suffered with for years. Please could you advise me of the exact quantities I should mix and take daily. Thank you
Marlene Bertrand from USA on October 26, 2013:
Yea for vitamin C, antioxidants, and all that good stuff! I'm glad I read all this about cinnamon and honey.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on October 26, 2013:
Cinnamon, honey and lemon will be a lovely combination I'm sure and if nothing else Marlene you'll get added vitamin C.
Marlene Bertrand from USA on October 26, 2013:
I'm a believer in using honey for a lot of things. I like the taste of cinnamon and glad to read about the many benefits. I drink honey and lemon in water every day, now I'll add the cinnamon. I bet that will taste wonderful, plus the added benefits make it all worth trying.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on October 09, 2013:
Glad to hear it is working. Make sure it is proper cinnamon and not cassia and all should be well. I hope you continue to improve.
state on October 09, 2013:
Hi Sue,thanks for the reply,am drinking Honey/Cinnamon mix going on four weeks for arthritis,and only this morning realize it has started working so bought more cinnamon powder,I will continue taking it morning and night.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on October 09, 2013:
Difficult to say state. It varies from person to person. Just keep drinking it till you get relief from whatever it is that is troubling you.
state on October 08, 2013:
How long do you have to drink the Honey/Cinnamon mixture before you see or feel results.
Jennipher J. Williams from ATLANTA, GA on August 29, 2013:
This morning I woke up with an unusual urge to make a special brew of black tea, organic apple cider, honey and cinnamon. As I began sipping this, I had another urge to do a Google search on the health benefits of my new concoction. Lo, and behold, I found this blog! What interesting information. Needless to say, I had been suddenly having mysterious leg aches and knee swelling causing me to literally walk like a robot. From the looks of things, my concoction may just help alleviate whatever is going on til I can get it professionally checked by a medical provider. Good looking out, y'all!
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on July 10, 2013:
Thanks MPG Narratives & vibesites. I would use green tea myself
Maria Giunta from Sydney, Australia on July 10, 2013:
Wow, I'm impressed that something I enjoy is actually good for me. I especially like that cinnamon and honey have anti-ageing properties, I'll have to drink more cinnamon tea now. Great article, voted up and useful.
vibesites from United States on July 10, 2013:
I both love honey and cinnamon but I don't know that they make an effective anti-ageing combination. I will try them with tea. So is it ok with any kind of tea? Thanks for posting. :)
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on June 22, 2013:
Thank you Pamela. That is praise indeed.
Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on June 22, 2013:
I have read some good things about both honey and cinnamon, but your list is terrific. I sure didn't know it was good for this number of physical ailments. Excellent hub and very useful. Voted up, awesome and shared.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on June 21, 2013:
There is a lot to be said for home remedies Blond Logic (sorry I don't know your real name, it isn't on your profile). I used honey on my wounds after a major operation and it healed them more than anything else did.
Mary Wickison from Brazil on June 20, 2013:
I knew that honey was a healer but was unaware about the properties of cinnamon . When my husband had a botched surgery on his leg, he had an open wound for a long while. After several courses of anti-biotics , the only thing that closed it was honey. Unfortunately by this time bone rot had set in and it had to be amputated.
Here in rural Brazil, there are many home remedies that are regularly used and some trust them, more than the doctors.
Thanks for the information.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on June 13, 2013:
Thanks for taking an interest Harsha
Harsha Vardhana R from Bangalore on June 13, 2013:
Very interesting and informative. Thanks for the spread of awareness !
I already have cinnamon. let me add honey too!
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on June 12, 2013:
Many thanks Eddy. I hope to get back to writing more often now I've finished my house move.
Eiddwen from Wales on June 12, 2013:
So very interesting and I vote up. Looking forward to so many more by you now.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on June 11, 2013:
Honey contains bacteria which can be harmful to babies under the age of 1 year but natural honey is better for us than pasteurised honey.
Tony Sky from London UK on June 11, 2013:
After hearing bad things about honey I started to research things and yes, honey IS good for us but it's raw honey that's the best right?
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on June 11, 2013:
Thank you for your comment anika. Why not carry out your own experiment? You could base your project around that rather than around my article. All my writing is copyrighted by the way so you cannot use any of my work without my permission. Good luck with your project.
anika on June 11, 2013:
i really like this! very helpful! though i dont know how to put this all in my investigatory project. its hard to indicate the problem, solution, and all that stuff that i need. do you have an experiment that involves honey and cinnamon? cuz this is just a description based on honey and cinnamon...
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on June 04, 2013:
Most remedies, even prescription medications have a placebo effect to some extent Meg. You are not required to believe any of the things on here; you have the freedom to choose. I am glad too that it is working for some people.
Meg on June 04, 2013:
I call placebo effect. While these two foods do have beneficial health results, I have a hard time jumping to believe all the things this article claims when there are no scientific sources. Whether it's a placebo or not, I'm glad it is working for some people.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on May 24, 2013:
I would try 1tsp honey to 1/2 tsp of Ceylon cinnamon Don.
don mc keown on May 24, 2013:
My mum has a very bad immune system and has c.o.p.d. and also extreme back pain from osteoporosis, can you tell me how much of each honey and cinamon she should take to try and help her
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on May 09, 2013:
It can't hurt to give it a try. Thanks for your comment caseymel
Melanie Casey from Indiana on May 09, 2013:
I have a cough that will not go away because of my allergies. I think I will try the cinnamon and honey tonight. I usually mix lemon and honey.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on May 06, 2013:
1 Tsp of honey and 1/2 Tsp of cinnamon in a cup of warm water Mindy is the recommended dosage for weight loss
Mindy on May 06, 2013:
What is the combination for the weight loss. How much honey and cinnomon...............Thanks
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on April 25, 2013:
Yes Lizam1 it won't hurt to try it. Personally I love cinnamon
Lizam1 on April 24, 2013:
Great tips for combining two of my favourite ingredients. I take a spoon of honey every day in green tea, sometimes twice a day and since I started that I have not fallen ill with colds et al that my colleagues have. I will try the cinnamon addition too. Thanks.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on April 18, 2013:
I believe it is a uterine stimulant so I wouldn't use it during pregnancy, during the planning stage I can't see why it wouldn't be safe. If it was taken in large quantities at the point of conception it may cause the uterus to contract so that might not be wise either. If you are at the planning stage, in that you are just talking about it and not actively trying to make a baby yet you should be fine.
Hima Kathuria from Gurgaon, India on April 18, 2013:
is there any one who can confirm whether the mixture of honey, lemon and cinnamon can be taken during planning stage of pregnancy
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on April 09, 2013:
No it won't hurt to do that. One of my favourite ways which I don't think I put in the article is to add honey and cinnamon to a mashed banana and eat it on toast.
Deborah Neyens from Iowa on April 09, 2013:
I see this hub has been around for a while but I'm just seeing it for the first time. It's fascinating to me that honey and cinnamon have so many uses as alternative health remedies. I always put honey in my green tea. Next time I will stir in some cinnamon powder, too. Can't hurt!
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on March 25, 2013:
Thanks Torrilynn. Keep reading and commenting.
torrilynn on March 24, 2013:
thanks for this hub on cinammon and honey. the information that you have provided is very useful. Voted up.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on March 23, 2013:
Glad to hear that it's working at fending off your cold.
onlyfreeoffers on March 23, 2013:
I take a teaspoon of honey mixed with cinnamon when I feel a cold coming on and it has been preventing the cold from fully coming on. I am hooked!!
Koralee Phillips from Vancouver British Columbia Canada on March 20, 2013:
Excellent hub! I am going to try the fatigue tip starting right now :), it's currently 3:45 where I am. I recently quit drinking coffee and need a replacement in the afternoon, and I am very glad I found a healthy alternative. Thank you!
radame7 on March 13, 2013:
Fantastic tips. Thank you!
cmanderson on March 13, 2013:
healthylife2 on February 25, 2013:
I find this information fascinating. I had no idea that cinnamon and honey had so many health benefits and even has anti-ageing properties. An increase in energy levels would be nice and there are no side effects to this remedy so it wouldn't hurt to try.
Kathy on February 13, 2013:
I been using the honey cinnamon morning and night and my hearing in my right ear is getting better i have suffered for 40 years and all along i had a natural cure for my ears in my cabinet. thanks for the info. also i have arthitis in my shoulder and since doing this morning and night my shoulder doesn't hurt in the mornings .
Jenna on January 28, 2013:
They say in all articles that you want to use "Ceylon" Cinnamon and "Raw" Honey, preferably Manuka honey.
I have been taking this mixture for 2 1/2 weeks now, I lost 4lbs and I feel amazing!
I took it for the health factor and wow I feel good.
It certainly doesn't hurt to try this mix, it's great for you.
But beware of Cassia cinnamon they say that can do more damage than good. use Ceylon *true Cinnamon
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on January 18, 2013:
Paul I don't have hearing loss so haven't tried this but I would start with half a teaspoon of each night and morning for a week . If there's no improvement increase to 1 teaspoon. Good luck
Paul on January 18, 2013:
How much cinnamon and honey for hearing impairment? I know it is equal parts, but what quantity of each?
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on November 07, 2012:
The ratio I would use is one tablespoon of honey to 1/4 teaspoon of Cinnamon.
Louise on November 05, 2012:
Hi....was wondering what the ration of honey to cinnamon is for the paste for toast? (heart dissease) Thanks!
Precious on October 09, 2012:
I like cinnamon and honey on toast, but honey and cinnamon is not good for everyone. Honey has sugar and that is not good for my immune system.
Gabrielle Foster on April 13, 2012:
I've been using this for about three weeks and I've already lost 27 pounds. Its amazing! (:
Chris Warren on April 07, 2012:
My cancer doctor said that Honey Cinnamon will not actually work in curing cancer. In fact, nothing you eat will make it go away. Exercise won't work. All those things are a nice idea in prevention, but not once cancer is confirmed.
On the up side, he said I am allowed to eat anything I want. Go do anything. The weekly CT scans will no longer "give" me cancer.
Like that old TV show with Ben Garazza. Have the whole world open to me to explore in the short time that is left. Now, if I could just get that millionaire thing figure out.....
luckyboy-bongani on February 20, 2012:
I have just tasted it its not bad but is it healy in pregnacy i am worried cause i am pregnant and i want to loose weight and i also have this cough that does not stop is it wise for me to use it

Super Med on January 11, 2011:
I was so hungry one day after a long day's haul and I came home and prepared myself a thick paste of honey and cinnamon, and wow! the hunger just went away. So magical, this honey and cinnamon.
Cinnamon Health Benefits on October 12, 2010:
Cinnamon and honey are great, natural products with very little or zero side effects.
They contain nutrients that can benefit us in a number of ways. But like anything, they aren't a wonder cure on their own. You have to eat and live a healthy lifestyle as well.
Violet Flores from Kentucky on September 09, 2010:
Excellent hub! I've tried the weight loss remedy with honey and cinnamon and have to say I was very pleased with the results. In my opinion, these are two amazing ingredients and like you said are magic when put together. Thanks for sharing all this information.
Nadia on July 28, 2010:

lbagwell on May 29, 2010:
This is a great post for people that don't know the power of cinnamon and honey. I have a friend with Chihuhua's that had skin problems and she made a paste with the honey and little bit of cinnamon and put that on them. It worked right away and got rid of whatever that rash was they had.
lara on April 12, 2010:

sharon on April 10, 2010:
I was told over two weeks ago by a student that she found this cure for her mother of 94 who always crying about pain all over her body to the point she could not walk and after using the honey and cinnamon she can now walk again also without a stick. I had pain in the mornings when i get up since i started using it over a week ago the pain stops

It really works for my arthritis.
Pauline on May 19, 2009:
I love cinnamon and i love honey, I am trying to add them in my hot water as a daily drink, but im finding it really hard to even swallow it. It's not the tastiest drink at all, but would like to see the benefits of it. Good luck to those who think the same as me.
mandybeau on April 21, 2009:
Didn't know about the cinnamon, which I love, but use honey and ginger. This stops colds in their tracks. Oh it has to be Manuka Honey.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on April 07, 2009:
I'll try that Barbara. Thanks for the tip. I've only got Manuka honey at present but I suppose that will be even better (it's darned expensive anyway!). Not sure what your readings translate to in UK measures. Mine is measured in mmol/l where I think yours is mg/dl.
Barbara Clark on April 07, 2009:
I have found that taking a mixure of 1 tsp of cinnamon and two tbs of honey with one cup of warm water before bedtime has reduced my morning Blood glucose reading to the 80's and 90's. Not like before when my count ranged 120 to 210 in the am before breakfast. Yes I take medication but in conjution with cinnamon and honey, it has givem better readings.
Organic Honey on March 17, 2009:
VERY informative. I'll be making some juice in the near future. Passing this onto my friends. Thanks.
Susan Bailey (author) from South Yorkshire, UK on March 12, 2009:
I know someone who lives in Horbury too, Castle Grove. Small world eh? Thanks for your nice comment.
Menopause Mags from Scotland on March 12, 2009:
Hi Sue! Amazing information in your Hub! I love both honey and cinnamon - in fact my favourite latte has honey and cinnamon in it - but I had no idea of their beneficial properties for both health and anti-ageing. I like the idea of honey and cinnamon on toast and I'm going to try that tomorrow. I'm also going to take it to cheer up my green tea! Thank you for sharing this!
Incidentally I lived in Ossett in West Yorkshire for many years and only moved to Scotland 2 years ago. My best friend lives in Horbury. I still have many clients in the Sheffield area.
RVilleneuve from Michigan on February 12, 2009:
Wonderful information! I plan to try many of your suggestions.
Mr Nice from North America on February 02, 2009:
Wow goodbye doctor great cures in nature. I eat almonds and honey daily. Almonds are good source of omega 3 and has lots vitamins too.
rcbonay on December 02, 2008:
Great Hub! Honey and Cinnamon tastes great and is all natural. Can't hurt to try it. I'm surprised I haven't heard about it before.
oneclickhealth on May 09, 2008:
I can speak for using olive oil to prevent hair loss, what is does is it actually removes the bacteria buildup on your scalp. which allows hair to grow back much more quickly.
