Cassia is an herb that is very similar to cinnamon. It originated in China where it was used for centuries as an herbal medicine. This essential oil is generally created from twigs, dry bark, and tree leaves. Since the tree that it is grown on is so similar to cinnamon trees it gives off a very similar aroma. The only difference is that the scent isn’t quite as strong. The bark of the tree is widely used in baked foods, curries, and candies.

Properties:
Antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial, astringent, disinfectant, antibiotic, stimulant, anti-diarrhea, and antispasmodic.

Possible Uses:
This oil can provide support to other blends in small quantities. Cassia may also be sensitizing to dermal tissues.
