Cinnamon is a powerful spice that has been used medicinally around the world for thousands of years.

Cinnamon can be protective against bacteria living in your mouth which causes bad breath, tooth decay, and mouth infections. The essential oil from cinnamon has been found to be the most effective at combating bacteria in the mouth, acting like a natural anti-bacterial mouthwash.
Similarly to peppermint, one of the health benefits of cinnamon may be that it can also be used as a natural flavouring agent in chewing gums due to its mouth refreshing abilities. Because it removes oral bacteria, cinnamon has the ability to naturally remove bad breath without adding any chemicals to the body. Due to this, it has been used to treat toothaches, dental problems, oral microbiota, and mouth sores.
Cinnamon is also used in some beauty products, shampoos, and perfume for its many potential health benefits that can help fighting infection while adding a pleasant smell.
