Sweet and spicy, warm and woody, Cassia Bark essential oil is an absolutely radiant aroma! This air-purifying oil invokes energy and vitality in both mind and body. One of the foundational 50 herbs of Chinese medicine, Cassia Bark was markedly used in ancient times for digestive health as well as emotional health and wellbeing. 

Body: A strong antiviral, antibacterial, and antimicrobial, Cassia Bark stimulates the entire system activating bodily functions and creating a warming effect that releases bodily tension.  

Mind & Emotions: Cassia Bark can bring us out of negative states like nervousness and fear and help quiet aggressive responses such as spite, coldness or severity towards self or others, malice, and blame. It can help interrupt a mental pattern of introversion or superficiality and encourage directness and steadfastness. It has a history of being used to build courage and a sense of self-worth. Lending us stable, slow-burning mental energy, Cassia Bark invites us to choose benevolence, view life with practicality, and sit in a place of peace mentally.

      Although the quality of Selah Oils is excellent, it is not advised to take essential oils internally unless under the guidance of a certified physician who is also certified in aromatherapy. We recommend getting internal dosing instructions from a licensed physician as some essential oils are not recommended for oral consumption. This is in no way a reflection on our oil quality, only a matter of safety and caution with respect to how concentrated essential oils are. When used within safe parameters, and under your physician's care, the quality of our essential oils is such that they can be used internally if deemed appropriate.

      However, with that said, it is important to remember the extreme concentration of essential oils. "Using essential oils by rubbing them into the skin or via inhalation is in many cases more effective than oral delivery" (3. p. 96).

      All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.


      Dilute well before applying.

      Avoid using this oil while pregnant or breastfeeding. May reduce milk supply.

      Repeated use can cause contact sensitization. Can cause EXTREME skin irritation.

      Use sparingly in diffuser; extended inhalation may result in irritation to nasal membranes.

      May inhibit blood clotting; skin sensitization; mucous membrane irritation. Skin patch test advised. 

      Large doses may harm liver, esp in those with existing liver disease. Do not use if already taking drugs (over the counter or prescription) that may harm the liver. If unsure, as your doctor.
