About the Plant:

Cassia is a tropical evergreen tree with a slender trunk and a voluminous orb of leathery leaves bursting with abundant yellow flowers. It is typically kept short like a shrub for production purposes.

Where it Grows: 

Cassia is native to southeast China. Amrita® Aromatherapy is proud to receive Organic Cassia from Vietnam.

Traditional Uses and Lore: 

Traditionally, Cassia has been used as a culinary spice. These days, Cassia is often used as a cheaper substitute for cinnamon similar to how Cinnamon Bark is used. Known for being used as a household spice, a processed food flavoring, an ingredient in mouthwash, the spicy scent of home fragrance sprays, and more. As a matter of fact, most cinnamon spice on the market is actually Cassia.

However, because it is too irritating to use on the skin, it must be diluted extremely well before applying the skin.
