Cassia Essential Oil
This cassia essential oil is produced from the leaves by steam distillation, golden yellow in colour and of a pourable viscosity. The aroma is intense cinnamon sweet, spicy, warm, balsamic, with a huge dollop of honey.
Arctander has this to say “Cassia Oil, or Chinese Cinnamon Oil, is steam distilled from the leaves of Cinnamomum Cassia, large slender trees which grow in the southeastern parts of China and, to a minor extent, in Vietnam and India (Cochin). The bark of this tree is known all over the world as “cinnamon bark” or “cassia-cinnamon”, not to be confused with the true Ceylon cinnamon bark which is derived from a different species.”
Botanical Name: Cinnamomum cassia
