The Cassia Tree is an evergreen tree approximately 50 ft in height. It has leathery, stiff elongated leaves. Its bark is steam distilled together with the leaves, stalks, twigs, and waste material of the Cassia tree. The best and most desired bark is collected from a young tree. The Cinnamomum cassia flower is a delicate white with a pale-yellow center, that then produces fruit about the size of a small olive. It is also known as Chinese Cinnamon Oil or Chinese Cassia. Cassia Essential Oil is dark brown in color. It has a strong, spicy, warm and wood-like resinous scent with an intensely sweet, somewhat balsamic-undertone like cinnamon.

Cassia Essential Oils contain hydroxychalcone and similar chemicals. These chemicals are said by some to improve insulin sensitivity. Cassia also contains chemicals that may activate blood proteins increasing blood sugar uptake. Some think this may improve blood sugar control in patients with diabetes.

BIBLICAL OIL: “An herb very similar to cinnamon, Cassia Oil is the fourth ingredient listed in the holy anointing oil detailed in Exodus 30:24. It may have been brought out of Egypt when the Israelites fled the Pharaoh and was commonly used with Myrrh and Aloes (Sandalwood) to scent garments.” (Dr. Josh Axe, DC, DMN, CNS.

Auroma Quality

AUROMA Essential Oils are the highest quality essential oils available in the world today. Each oil is from an individual farmer and from a particular year’s harvest. As AUROMA knows each of the Farmers, they guarantee the authenticity of each oil. Just to be certain, they analyze each oil using the latest state-of-the-art GC-MS technology, which can detect impurities to one part per billion. Yes! AUROMA represents the best there is in Essential Oils. We can supply the following documentation: Certificates of Analysis and Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:

  1. BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
  2. CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.Diffser
  5. WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.
  6. EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of expensive oils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
  7. ANALYYSIS: Oils are tested by AUROMA in Australia with the most advanced state-of- the-art equipment in the world.
