doTERRA Cassia Essential Oil Uses and 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. For centuries, this sister to the cinnamon spice has been used internally to maintain physical health and aromatically to support emotional well-being.
One of Cassia oil’s most prominent health benefits is its ability to promote healthy digestion when used internally.* Cassia is also a popular ingredient when making many different entrees, bread, and desserts. This spice is flavorful and can be used to replace cinnamon in a variety of food items.
Along with its digestion benefits, Cassia oil can be taken internally to support healthy immune function and to maintain cardiovascular health.* Cassia oil is also a powerful agent 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.
Due to its caustic nature, Cassia oil should be diluted with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil when applied to the skin and can be very strong when inhaled directly.

Tips from some doTERRA Facebook fans on how they use Cassia:
- “My tip is to help you get off of soda, use 2 drops cassia and 3-5 drops of lemon in a glass of water. It’s sweet, spicy and just yummy!” – Misty Scott Pate
- “I love this oil! My favorite way to use it is to take several toothpicks and place [them] in a shallow bowl. I put 4-10 drops of Cassia on the toothpicks (depending on how many toothpicks I use) and allow the oil to absorb overnight. Then I put them in an old peppermint bead let bottle for storage and when I want a fun ‘cinnamon ’ toothpick [I] just pop one in my mouth for a hot little treat that last for quite a while. It reminds me of the cinnamon toothpicks the ice cream truck would sell in my neighborhood as a kid. They taste a lot like those … Just better.” – Ryan Harris
- “I use it on dry cracks on my heel. It stops the discomfort and helps heal it. Saw a doctor on Dr. Oz saying that cassia does everything cinnamon does, but better!” – Raina Robinson Editor’s note: cassia is caustic in nature. We encourage you to exercise caution when trying this tip on sensitive skin.
- “Cassia is AWESOME in the Vanilla Trim Shake. Add an apple for a cinnamon apple pie a la mode shake! You can also put ONE drop in a bag with 8-10 apples, cored and sliced. GREAT party snack and the kids love it.” – Joan Southwick
- “I use it when I feel like I need a sugar craving. I put a drop in my mouth and I feel like I just had my favorite candy — hot tamale’s!” – Amy Lucas Kolan
