Cinnamon and honey have been used for centuries in order to manage digestive problems like nausea, ulcers, and constipation. You should always have in mind the fact that honey is pre-digested nectar, so it won’t be a problem for the body to break it down. Cinnamon and its antimicrobial properties are of aid for bacterial overload in the digestive system, particularly in individuals suffering from an E. coli infection.

5. Acne Treatment
Honey and cinnamon have been used by traditional healers for centuries as a way to treat acne and various other skin conditions. Both cinnamon and honey offer potent antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
According to The Journal of Complementary and Traditional medicine, cinnamon is very effective at killing Staphylococcus epidermidis, the types of bacteria often responsible for acne.
6. Useful for Healing Wounds
Both honey and cinnamon have excellent healing properties that can be useful for treating skin infections when the mixture is applied to the skin. The two of them have the ability to fight bacteria and decrease inflammation. These are two factors that are very important when it comes to healing the skin.
7. Allergy Relief
Raw honey strengthens the immune system and soothes the symptoms of allergies.
One of the main causes of allergies in the home are dust mites. But most of the products we use to destroy them are often high in dangerous chemicals. Dust mites cause asthma, dermatitis, rhinitis, and other issues, but cinnamon is a potent weapon against them!
Cinnamon bark oil and cinnamon leaf oil are two and a half times more effective at destroying dust mites than benzyl benzoate. For this you’ll need to add cinnamon leaf or bark oil to distilled water, and spray on the curtains, mattresses, and linens to kill dust mites.
