Cassia essential oil is in the same botanical family as cinnamon, and both essential oils come from the plant’s bark (but from two different plants). Cassia has a warm and spicy aroma but is sweeter than cinnamon. They share a similar chemical makeup. It is often used as immune system support, particularly if extra immunity is needed! Cooking and cleaning are two other uses, but be sure the brand of cassia oil is safe for ingestion before cooking with it!
Want to add a bit of spice to the bedroom? Create a massage oil or diffuse a blend with a bit of Cassia.
Personal Favorite Use:
I like adding a bit of fall spice to my coffee or tea occasionally utilizing cassia. It gives it a bit of “kick” but not as strong as cinnamon.
