Cassia Oil Product Description
Extracted from the bark of a Cinnamomum cassia plant, Cassia is a warm and spicy essential oil with a myriad of benefits that can help the mind and the body.
Cassia oil is also powerful when used aromatically. In small doses, its strong and spicy aroma can be used to create an uplifting atmosphere that will promote emotional health. The fragrance emitted from Cassia is recognized anciently in the Old Testament for its powerful scent and calming properties. However, due to its classification as a hot oil, Cassia oil should be diluted with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil when applied to the skin and can be very strong when inhaled directly.

When selecting essential oils for purchase, it is crucial to find oils that are pure and potent. The purity and potency of an essential oil contributes greatly to the effectivity of the oils. If oils are impure or contain contaminants or filler substances, then they will lessen the mental and physical health benefits that accompany an oil. At doTERRA, we know that a pure and potent oil can help change lives and can cause impactful health benefits. In order to guarantee that our essential oils reach this high level of purity and potency, each batch of essential oils must go through the CPTG® protocol. This protocol includes a series of strict tests that ensure that each essential oil sold is potent and pure so that when you purchase doTERRA essential oils, you can know that you are receiving the highest quality oils.
