Cassia is high in aldehydes and this class of oils is harsh on the skin and all delicate areas of the human body especially the face and eyes. It should not be used neat and great care should be taken to avoid direct contact. Flushing essential oils with water does little to lessen already exposed areas. As quickly as possible carrier oils should be used when there is skin contact. These fixed oils include, but are not limited to, grapeseed and olive oil.
Even though such caution is vital, with proper care it can be used successfully in aroma therapy practice.
Cassia is a brilliant product to use in a diffuser. It is an odor retardant and a powerful defense against air borne pathogens especially viral. During cold and flu season diffuse cassia for 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes before bed in the rooms with the highest occupancy. Use it in rooms that are difficult to keep warm. The oil promotes warmth and aids in circulation. For families this is a comforting homecoming scent.
