Blood sugar levels
This spice is similar in character to cinnamon, deriving from a tree in the same family, however its actual level of cinnamaldehyde is less than 5%, compared to its cousin, at up to 50%, meaning that it is less toxic and less likely to cause skin irritations. When taken internally Ishpingo may help reduce blood sugar levels.
Its warm and spicy aroma is mentally relaxing, affecting the sacral and solar plexus chakras.
