Spice up your life with one of the 50 fundamental herbs in traditional Chinese medicine. Known as “Chinese cinnamon” Cassia comes from Cinnamomum cassia, an evergreen tree native to China and Burma. Being from the same botanical family, Cassia mimics Cinnamon’s properties and benefits, however, the scent can be described as “sweeter” than true Cinnamon.
It has an extensive history in indigenous medicine and has been used in Ayurvedic practice as an expectorant and diuretic, assisting in the treatment of bronchitis and constipation. Cassia Essential Oil also has significant ties to emotional well-being. It can be used as a way to relieve depression and has been used to build courage and a sense of self-worth for years.
The benefits of Cassia Essential Oil are impressive. With its powerful antioxidant content, it is known to prevent the formation of free radicals and has the potential to diminish disease processes such as cancer and diabetes.
