Cassia essential oil is steam distilled from the stems and bark of the Cassia shrub. Aromatically, it has a warm, spicy, cinnamon scent.
"A close relation to Cinnamon, Cassia has a strong, spicy aroma that can be used in small quantities to transform any essential oil blend. Cassia has been used for thousands of years for its many health benefits. It's one of the few essential oils mentioned in the Old Testament, noted for its unmistakable fragrance and calming aromatic properties. Cassia is a "warming" oil that helps promote a healthy immune function when ingested.* It also is a great oil to diffuse during cold months due to its warming properties and spicy scent. Due to its caustic nature, Cassia should be diluted with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil when applied to the skin and can be very strong when inhaled directly. When diluted and applied topically, Cassia can help soothe the body. Cassia can be used in cooking either as a replacement for cinnamon in pies and breads or by itself in a myriad of entrees and desserts."
This is considered a HOT oil, do not apply without carrier oil. Always follow recommended dilution when applying. Use caution when taking internally.
Cassia is regarded as the "Oil of Self-Assurance." It may assist one in feeling courageous, self-assured, unashamed, confident, valued, and authentic. Cassia may assist you in releasing feeling embarrassed, hiding, fearful, humiliated, insecure, judged, shy, and worthless.
