Stoned History

During the cloud of dis-ease [sic] that was later called the bubonic plague, cloths would be soaked in cinnamon and other spices and placed in the room of the afflicted because of its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
Because, you know, people in the 14th Century were, like, totally into germ theory. Louis Pasteur just filled in the details.

This gem is one of many in “Bubonic Plague to Crown Chakra—Cinnamon as Medicine,” published in an online newspaper out of Las Vegas called the Guardian Express. The author, one Stasia Bliss, identifies herself as a Senior Editor there, as well as a “part-time yoga instructor & Master Alchemist.” [What’s part-time yoga?—Ed.] [Texting while in Downward Dog.]

This will come as a shock: Ms. Bliss lives in Portland, Oregon.
