Cinnamon Twig 

(Cinnamomum cassia)


Cinnamon twigs are used for colds, flu, arthritis, and minor gynaecological problems.

Only use good quality twigs - those that have a deep red/brown colour and strong scent.

While cinnamon twigs have a lot in common with cinnamon bark, Chinese herbalists use each part of the plant to treat different ailments. Cinnamon twigs are characterised in traditional Chinese medicine as warm, acrid, and sweet.

How It May Benefit You...

  • colds, influenza, and mild fever.

  • arthritis and rheumatism.

  • gynaecological problems


Do not use cinnamon twigs if you are pregnant as you may have a more difficult birth. Also do not use this herb if you menstruate heavily as you may experience even heavier periods. Do not use the herb if you have a high fever.

WARNING:    Herbs should only be used under the supervision of an experienced herbalist or naturopath experienced in herbs.


Combinations: A preparation containing cinnamon twigs and liquorice that has been fried with honey is recommended for palpitations and shortness of breath.

When mixed with evodia fruit, the herb is prescribed for abdominal pain and menstrual disorders.
