    Details

    The Cinnamomum cassia tree grows natively in China, where the powdered bark has been used as an ingredient in natural medicine for gripe or colic for thousands of years. It is a close relative to cinnamon, with a sweeter aroma. Our cassia essential oil is steam-distilled from the leaves of the cassia tree.

    • Botanical Name: Cinnamomum cassia

    • Country of Origin: China

    • Extraction Method: Steam distillation

    • Plant Part: Leaves

    • Aromatic Scent: A pungent, warm scent. Powdered cassia contains 1% to 2% volatile oil (cassia oil), which is mainly responsible for the spicy aroma.

    • Blends well with: Benzoin, Clove Bud, Cardamom, Frankincense, Grapefruit, Lavender, Rosemary, and Thyme

    Common Uses

    Cassia has a wonderful scent and can be easily mixed with other spice essential oils. It is an extremely potent oil and when applied topically should be used in extreme dilution to avoid sensitivity. Diffuse in a blend or apply topically at a maximum of 0.2% dilution (one drop to 5 teaspoons carrier oil).

    Research
