CINNAMON is an effective herb for strengthening and harmonizing the flow of circulation (vyana vayu). It is a good diaphoretic and expectorant in colds and flus, and is especially good for those of weak constitution. It is a pain reliever for toothache and muscle tension. It strengthens the heart, warms the kidneys and promotes Agni. Like ginger, it is almost a universal medicine, and is less likely to aggravate Pitta than ginger. It is a good general beverage (its quality is sattvic) for Vata constitution.

It is the basis for the Three Aromatics, along with cardamom and bay leaves. These three help promote digestion, strengthen samana vayu, and help in the absorption of medicines. They occur together like Trikatu (dry ginger, black pepper and pippali, in many Ayurvedic formulas.
