Cassia 5 mL Cinnamomum cassia
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 to maintain physical health* and promote emotional well-being. It’s one of the few essential oils mentioned in the Old Testament, noted for its unmistakable fragrance and calming properties. Cassia is a “warming” oil that helps promote a healthy immune function. 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, Cassia can help soothe the body. This spicy oil can be used in cooking either as a replacement for cinnamon in pies and bread or by itself in a myriad of entrees and desserts. Promotes healthy digestion and immune function while providing a strong, uplifting aroma.
