I love Autumn. The scents, the changing leaves, cozy sweater season - I am here for it. I am fully into the fall vibes and it wouldn’t be fall without Cassia essential oil.
Cassia essential oil is derived from the bark of the Cinnamomum cassia tree. It has a warm and spicy aroma, similar to cinnamon. Consider Cassia a cousin to Cinnamon. It is unmistakably a fall scent, and will probably make you crave a pumpkin spice latte!
Whether you are looking to improve your mood, clean your home, or keep insects at bay, cassia essential oil is worth considering. In aromatherapy, cassia essential oil is known for its stimulating and uplifting properties. It can help to boost energy levels and improve mood. It is often used in diffusers or added to massage oils to create a warm and comforting atmosphere. Cassia is the Oil of Self-Assurance and brings gladness and courage to the heart and soul.
Cassia essential oil also has antimicrobial properties, making it a popular ingredient in natural cleaning products. Very helpful during weather changes and season switches. It can help to kill bacteria and fungi, making it an effective choice for disinfecting surfaces. Additionally, it can be used as a natural insect repellent. One note for diffusing this oil - use it sparingly! Cassia is a spicy little lady!
Cassia is one of the known “hot” oils. A hot
oil is an oil that can feel very warm on the skin and can sometimes cause skin irritation. When using topically, it's a good idea to dilute cassia with a carrier oil like jojoba to protect the skin.
