If you like the scent of cinnamon, you’ll love Cassia essential oil! Cassia has historically been used medicinally and in culinary applications in a similar way as cinnamon. It is also called “Chinese Cinnamon”.

Cassia essential oil is a physical and emotional stimulant. It is known for its anti-diarrhea, antidepressant, analgesic, antimicrobial, circulatory, and carminative properties. Care should be used in any topical applications as it can be highly irritating – dilute very well.

Cassia essential oil blends well with Roman Chamomile, Frankincense,Ginger,Rosemary, Geranium, Coriander and citrus oils – all great for diffusing blends! Cassia essential oil is also a wonderful addition to DIY cleaning recipes due to its antimicrobial qualities.

Bonus fact: Many US citizens have never used real cinnamon in baking or eaten it in baked goods – the spice marketed as common cinnamon in the US is actually cassia (unless otherwise specified). Who knew?
