Episode Summary

Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) is one of those ubiquitous spices that everyone has in their cupboard. Pairing equally well with sweet and savory dishes, cinnamon is delicious, but it’s also packed with powerful healing gifts.

Listen in as I discuss all things cinnamon with first-year Rooted Medicine Circle graduate Dominique Jermyn, The Nourishing Mystic. You’ll also receive Dominique’s wonderful recipe for gluten-free, vegan Cinnamon Banana Pancakes. Yum!

Listen in for:

► How Nature can serve as a template for creating change 

► What makes cinnamon’s energetics special

► A caution to be aware of when working with cinnamon

I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Dominique and I’m delighted to share our conversation with you!

When we find herbs, when we find all of those different ways to use herbs, they bring more aliveness to life. And I think it's because they bring us more into the present moment.
