This oil is a dark brown liquid with a strong, spicy, warm and woody resinous order with intensely sweet, somewhat balsamic undertones. They are large slender trees which grow in the southeastern parts of China.

The bark contains significant amounts of tannin and this material causes a certain darkening of the oils from the iron or copper stills.

Traditionally, this dried herb was used as a spice. In traditional medicine it has been used for digestive complaints. Used much the same way as Cinnamon.

Shelf Life: if stored properly research indicates shelf life may exceed 24 months.

It has been said: 'the effect of this essential oil assists in depression by uplifting mood and inducing warm feelings in the body and mind.

Chemical Composition:
cinnamic aldehyde (87%), cinnamyl acetate (0.08%), benzaldehyde (4.73%), linalool (0.13%), chavicol (0.33%).

Cautions:
As it contains 75- 90% cinnamaldehyde which is the cause of cassia's potent dermal sensitizer & irritant, it is not recommended for use on the skin. Also, due to its anti-galactogogue effect, this oil can reduce the secretion of milk & therefore, NOT recommended for lactating Mothers. Women that are pregnant are also advised not to use this oil. Do not use on children under 6 years of age.

External use only. Do NOT use undiluted on the skin.

Keep away from children & pets

Store away from heat & light
