Cassia bark oil is derived from the Cinnamomum cassia plant of the Lauraceae family. It is frequently compared to cinnamon bark oil and cinnamon leaf oil, which are both extracted from the same plant species. Also known as the Chinese cinnamon, cassia is native to China and is a slender, evergreen tree that grows up to 20 meters or 65 feet tall. It has thick, leathery leaves and tiny, immaculately white flowers. It is a dark brown liquid with a strong warm and woody-resinous odor and sweet balsamic undertone. The tannins in the bark give the essential oil a dark color if copper stills are used. Rectified cassia bark oil, on the other hand, has a yellowish color. The main chemical components of cassia bark oil are cinnamic aldehyde, cinnamyl acetate, benzaldehyde, linalool and chavicol.
Cassia can be used in cooking either as a replacement for Cinnamon in pies and breads or by itself in a myriad of entrÃ©es and desserts. This strong, scented oil is very warm and spicy like its relative cinnamon. That wonderful aroma that is familiar in the spice world, is a favorite to create seasonal blends that bring the Holidays indoors. This powerful oil can be used in a warming massage blend, but only very little is needed. The health benefits of cassia essential oil can be attributed to its properties as an anti-diarrhea, antidepressant, anti-emetic, anti-galactagogue, antimicrobial, anti-rheumatic, anti-arthritic, astringent, antiviral, carminative, circulatory, emmenagogue, febrifuge, and stimulant substance.
