Cassia Essential Oil

Adam Michael has this to say “Produced from the leaves by steam distillation, cassia essential oil is golden yellow in colour and of a pourable viscosity. The aroma of cassia essential oil 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 (see Cinnamon Bark Oil).”
