Cassia Essential Oils
Cassia oil is described as a “hot” oil, as is cinnamon. This means that it will likely not be used alone, but rather in blends. Reportedly, this essential oil was used in the mixture given to Moses and known as the Holy Anointing Oil (consisting of a blend of olive oil, calamus, cinnamon, cassia, and myrrh). Derived from the bark and twigs of the tree, this essential oil has an aroma that is described as slightly woody, cinnamon-like, spicy, and warm, with a thin consistency. Cassia essential oil blends well with sweet orange, blood orange, lemon, rosemary, lavender, grapefruit, ginger, frankincense, coriander, clove bud, and more.
