**As our customer, should you purchase these types of oils we urge you to be knowlegable in the use of the oil, by purchasing an information booklet, visiting your library, the internet, etc. Some oils can cause allergic reactions, others should not be used by pregnant women, or people with certain medical conditions. (note, 10% means essential oil is reduced by cutting with a carrier, for volume. Does not diminish the fragrance of the E/O, but it gives our customers a chance to purchase very expensive oils in a smaller volume) Cassia:
Cassia essential oil is somewhat similar to Cinnamon essential oil, hence why the photo above looks like cinnamon. Both are from the same botanical family (Lauraceae) and both are derived from the bark of the plant. But they are actually from two different plants. Cassia is from Cinnamomum cassia, while cinnamon is Cinnamomum zeylanicum. It’s a spicy, warm aroma, but sweeter than cinnamon.
Cassia is most commonly used to support the immune system, especially when it needs an extra boost. It can also be useful in cleaning, and even cooking if you’ve got a quality brand that is safe for internal use.
